The impact of irrigation on Minnesota’s economy not just to the farmer, but also the rural communities where irrigation takes place in Minnesota is significant. IAM wants to spread the message that farmers who irrigate are working hard to be good stewards of our natural resources.

Alan peterson, former iam president

Irrigated agriculture is an important part of Minnesota’s economy.

Membership supports new science based research on irrigation management as well as lobbying efforts connecting irrigators to legislators.  As our state becomes more urbanized, we face a real threat that laws will be enacted that severely restrict our ability to irrigate.
