WaterSched2 is a web based real-time tool which requires minimal input.
It has been developed to provide guidance in enabling good decisions for irrigators
WaterSched utlises the FAO56 dual-crop coefficient methodology to model root zone
based on real-time weather data from SILO and approved weather station networks.
Manage a farm with multiple fields with multiple crops and different soil parameters
with different planting dates in any one season.
The tool predicts the soil water status of a field on a daily basis.
WaterSched2 can adjust soil moisture status at any given time in the season based
on probe data provided by growers or consultants.
Create customised soil profiles for each field or for an entire farm using a variety
of soil textures.
Incorporates economics that generates gross margins for individual fields.
WaterSched2 can also determine gross margins for a particular irrigation strategy
at a given time in the season.
Produces both field and farm summary reports. The reports provide detailed summaries
WaterSched2 uses reference evapotranspiration data based on weather station data
from SILO or approved weather station networks.
Provide on farm rainfall data to generate more accurate soil water balances or use
SILO rainfall for more automation.
