Our awards are to recognise outstanding contributions to agricultural engineering, associated industries and to the IAgrE.   Nominations for awards are requested in the Summer from our branches, technical groups, Council, Executive and our members.  Other Awards are occasionally made on an ad hoc basis.

All nominations are put to our Awards Panel which meets before Christmas, and they select winners for approval by Executive in January.
