The Irrigation Association announced that The Toro Company will be a premier sponsor of the 2023 Irrigation E3 program. Through this sponsorship, E3 winners will receive education and travel awards to attend the 2023 Irrigation Show and Education Week in San Antonio, Texas.
The E3 program provides students and faculty with exposure, experience and education in the irrigation industry by giving them the opportunity to take education classes, network with industry professionals and discover all that the irrigation industry has to offer on the trade show floor of the annual Irrigation Show. Since the program’s inception, The Toro Company has been a crucial part of the program’s success.
“The E3 program recognizes the contributions of current students and accomplishments of faculty in various irrigation-related coursework, providing them with an opportunity to develop a deeper level of understanding of the industry and its career opportunities,” said IA CEO Natasha Rankin, CAE, MBA. “We are excited that The Toro Company is continuing their sponsorship of this program, building enthusiasm in the industry and supporting the IA’s commitment to develop our future workforce.”
