Design your future in irrigation - integrating standards and training agendas for the 21st century
- What are the challenges and opportunities faced to achieve a national set of Standards and Codes of Practice for the Australian irrigation industry?
- Can we bridge technical, management and language divides to achieve sustainability and the flexibility to adapt to the conditions of the future?
- If so, what action is needed now to underpin a structured and progressive career path for people in the irrigation sector?
