Abstract:

CIMIS, California Irrigation Management Information System, is a program that collects weather data around the state to assist irrigators in planning and scheduling their irrigations. It also consists of a computer program that gives irrigation scheduling utilizing historic weather data averages. The program was not developed to be a real time irrigation scheduling program but was easily modified to include this capability. The main improvement reported on this paper is adding specific scheduling capabilities for center pivots.
