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.
