Irrigation Programs
 
Some things irrigators should consider around this time:
 
  • Know your options in terms of crops to plant and acreage.  One tool to help you is Crop Water Allocator.
  • Verify the integrity of your irrigation system in preparation for the cropping season.  Pay attention to faulty nozzles and pressure regulators.  If needed, contact your dealer for preventive maintenance check.
  • Consider establishing an irrigation schedule such as KanSched3 (online version) or KanSched2 (downloadable version).  Get daily evapotranspiration (ET) values from the weather data library (WDL), or from this webpage.
  • Install soil moisture sensors now to help you decide during the cropping season if irrigation is needed (or not) together with your irrigation schedule program.
