This year's conference will highlight education and discussion on cultural, agricultural and research-focused aspects of the river basin with featured speakers from Nebraska, Colorado and Wyoming, and includes virtual options for viewing.
This year's conference will feature irrigation water and weather outlooks for the 2022 growing season, as well as irrigation research updates and a meet-and-greet with irrigation district representatives.

While conceived as a daylong event in Gering, the conference was moved online due to social distancing concerns. Conference presentations about water in the North Platte Valley of western Nebraska are now online.
The fall 2018 issue of IANR's Growing magazine focuses on water stewardship, Nebraska's long history of irrigation development, and a new study of potential links between irrigation, cloud formation, and rainfall.
