Phil Burkart, vice president and general manager of The Toro Company’s irrigation division, has been appointed to serve on the Board of Directors for the Irrigation Association.
“This is a great opportunity to help sustain a healthy irrigation industry for decades to come,” Burkart says. “It also allows us to work more cooperatively toward promoting more efficient water management practices – a critical initiative supported by Toro and the Irrigation Association.”
The association plans to continue its support of the irrigation industry by increasing awareness of critical issues and public policies and educating irrigation professionals on new technologies and more effective water management practices. Burkart says he wants the IA to become more involved in providing “practical, reliable solutions” to irrigation professionals in response to water conservation problems.
