The Irrigation Channel

The Irrigated Cropping Council is proud to present The Irrigation Channel - a podcast that brings news and information from the world of irrigation research and practices.

The Irrigated Cropping Council (ICC) is a farmer driven, not for profit, independent research organisation, committed to providing the latest research in irrigated grain production and connecting growers with local, state and national research and extension.

Collaborating with key research/extension organisations and funding bodies ensures growers across the region have access to the latest information in irrigated grain production systems to enable them to make informed decisions about best practice and drive profitable, sustainable farm systems.
