Proper management of irrigation water is increasingly important for agriculture producers in Texas. Irrigation scheduling tools assist producers by increasing water use efficiency. Below are examples of tools created for irrigation scheduling.
TAWC Solutions provides a simple web-based management decision tool and an ET (evapotranspiration) tool that can aid in improved management decisions in the application of irrigation water. The tools on this site are intended to help secure the future of agriculture in the Texas High Plains. The TAWC Water Guide is also available for resource management to increase profits and make every drop count.
The Texas ET Network and website provide real-time evapotranspiration data from a state-wide weather station network with tools to allow users to determine irrigation requirements in agricultural and urban landscapes. Weather information, irrigation watering recommendations, and useful tips for irrigation scheduling are provided.
