Irrigation Water Management

Practicing IWM Paragraph (What is IWM)

 

Practicing IWM can help:
 

  • Minimize water quality problems

  • Reduce energy costs

  • Improve crop quality and yield

 

Principles of IWM
 

  • Distribution and application uniformity

  • Irrigation timing and soil water holding capacity affect irrigation scheduling

  • Soil moisture monitoring system to make informed irrigation scheduling decisions

  • Installing at least one soil moisture monitoring probe per field

  • Provide a graph for each field of documented soil moisture readings for the entire season

  • Provide total precipitation in acre inches for each field at season end, including rain and irrigation

  • Document daily evapo-transpiration (ET) for the field through the irrigation season

  • Provide documentation of projected, scheduled irrigation recommendations throughout the season
