Do your customers understand that efficient irrigation can save them water and dollars? Become part of the Smart Irrigation Month campaign and position your company as a leader in water-saving practices with customers, business partners and peers. Whether your business is big or small or focused on agriculture, turf and landscape, or golf applications, there are many ways to participate in the Smart Irrigation Month campaign.
