Supporting the future of irrigated agriculture

Congratulations on choosing studies in agriculture. There are many rewarding career opportunities in irrigated agriculture and Australia’s irrigated agricultural industry is a key part of the world’s food supply system.

As a farmer-driven and community-focused organisation operating since 1939, IREC recognises that starting a career pathway in agriculture can be helped by staying informed, building strong networks and understanding the current issues in your chosen field.

We invite students to join us via our FREE Student Membership option. Students who are currently enrolled in a tertiary Agriculture or Agribusiness related degree or diploma course and have an interest in irrigated agriculture are eligible to apply. High School students undertaking agriculture are also eligible and encouraged to apply.

The FREE Student Membership option is being offered to keep students up to date with key events, seasonal updates, research outcomes and information of interest to irrigated farming communities. IREC also hosts events providing students with an opportunity to meet a broad cross-section of farmers, industry representatives and researchers.

The IREC Student Membership option is FREE and includes:
