About the Symposium

The International Drainage Symposium is an international forum for presenting, discussing, and collaborating on recent and ongoing drainage research and implementation throughout the world. The 2016 International Drainage Symposium marks the 50th anniversary of the first Symposium held in 1965 in Chicago, following the distinguished tradition of the nine previous International Drainage Symposia held throughout North America.

The 10th International Drainage Symposium will address opportunities and challenges for agricultural production on the world's poorly drained soils and landscapes. The challenge of increasing agricultural production in a changing climate, with ever-greater attention to water quality and quantity concerns, will require technical, economic, and social perspectives. The Symposium will provide an opportunity for drainage research, industry, and practitioner communities to interact, share experiences, and address emerging concerns. Two days of technical presentations, followed by a day of field tours, are planned.

The Symposium is being planned by an international committee led by Co-Chairs Jane Frankenberger, Purdue University, and Gary Sands, University of Minnesota.

Partners: The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers and the University of Minnesota Water Resources Center.

Sponsors: University of Minnesota, Purdue University, Iowa State University, The Ohio State University, University of Illinois, and University of Missouri.
