Irrigation in UK

UK Irrigation Association - An independent organisation promoting the wise use of water for irrigation


We provide members with up to date information on all aspects of irrigation in the UK including agriculture, horticulture, golf, amenity, sports surfaces, and landscaping. We promote all aspects of irrigation and help to raise standards of knowledge and competence in irrigation design, installation and management.

Our members include farmers, growers, consultants, equipment suppliers, contractors, government and regulatory staff, university academics, and researchers.

We are not a trade organisation but we welcome individual and group membership from manufacturers, suppliers, and consultancy companies. See membership classes below.
