Produced by our programming experts, in cooperation with growers across the state of Colorado, the Water Irrigation Scheduler for Efficiency (WISE) Application is an award-winning tool that estimates optimal irrigation schedules for crop fields across much of the Western United States. WISE was designed to make irrigation scheduling both convenient and as cost-effective as possible. Farmers, consultants, or researchers can quickly and easily learn how to maximize crop yield and minimize excess irrigation for crop fields with various soil types, climate, and irrigation practices.
Users are able to define a crop boundary and create a customized crop field. Then several options are available to add and customize:
- Weather Station Data
- Soil Data
- Field Attributes
Once completed, a customized schedule will be created that includes a summary of the crop irrigation needs as well as a table and graph of the irrigation scheduling results. Results can be exported as an excel file, image or printed directly from the interface.
