Irrigation scheduling is a technique for systematically determining the proper date and quantity of each irrigation in individual fields. This technique is presently being used by government agencies and private companies in the Western United States to assist farmers in planning irrigations. This report describes a case study in which the regional environmental and economic benefits of irrigation scheduling are assessed. The analysis indicates that substantial environmental benefits can be realized through use of the technique. However, it was also found that imperfections which normally occur in actual irrigation scheduling operations could drastically reduce these benefits.
