Abstract

Scheduling the timing and amount of irrigation water applied has changed very little during the last two decades. Professional irrigation scheduling services are rapidly expanding and many of the companies are using a computer program developed by the USDA. This program uses meteorological, soil and crop data to predict irrigation dates and amounts. Service companies modify the program to fit their needs. Periodic field inspections are provided by trained technicians as part of scheduling service. This paper briefly describes the development of the computer program and the current status of its application in Idaho.
