The 2017 Gippsland Irrigation Expo is being organised by Agriculture Victoria with funding support from the Wellington Shire Council.

The Gippsland Irrigation Expo will return to the Sale Showgrounds next month with hundreds of irrigators from across Gippsland and the broader state expected to attend this highly regarded event.

Around 600 people visited the last expo in 2017 and organisers are anticipating similar numbers this year.

The free-entry expo is scheduled for 4 March with gates open from 9 am until 3 pm.

Agriculture Victoria Senior Irrigation Extension Officer Alexis Killoran said the event hosted a large number of exhibitors showcasing the very latest techniques and technologies for all aspects of irrigated farming.

“The previous event in 2017 attracted exhibitors from South Australia and New South Wales, as well as across Victoria,” she said.

“The expo is both indoors and outdoors and will showcase a range of equipment and products with plenty of expertise on site to help map out your irrigation needs.

“Each person attending will receive a ticket to the free sausage sizzle and entry into the prize draw, catering is also available on the day.”
