On January 8 2007, the INOVAGRI Institute was founded in a meeting at the headquarters of the Association of Agricultural Engineers of the State of Ceará. Ten professionals decided to create this association of specialists in the rational use of water in agriculture. Since then, throughout these thirteen years INOVAGRI has been carrying out many activities that have been contributing to bring to irrigated fields all over Brazil, a new perspective for research, technological development and innovation in irrigated agriculture.
INOVAGRI contributes in a systematic and active way to the development of irrigated agriculture and the rational use of water through the execution of basic or applied research, technological development and innovation, as a way of fighting water scarcity, negative environmental impact and social inequality and poverty in the fields of Brazil.
