The Irrigation Training & Research Center (ITRC) was established in 1989 at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, within the BioResource and Agricultural Engineering Department as a center of excellence, building on a history of contributions to the irrigation industry.

ITRC has a long history of providing pragmatic irrigation training and technical expertise to industry, farmers, irrigation districts, and state/federal agencies. Our work is approximately 65% direct technical assistance, 15% training, and 20% research (both applied government-funded, and industry). Explore our site to learn more about us. As our motto says, we are "moving water in new directions."
