A procedure has been developed and tested to forecast demand-type large irrigation diversions on a daily basis. The model is based on hydrologic concepts as well as irrigation scheduling concepts. The model forecasts total irrigation diversions using forecasted weather data only. The model has been successfully applied in the Upper Snake River Basin, Idaho, and results indicate that the model can be used effectively in real-time irrigation project system operations.
