SWIIM® provides a new standard in water measurement than allows growers to receive an accurate accounting of the water both delivered and consumed on their fields. This patented process was developed with the help of the USDA and is being used successfully by growers and water providers. SWIIM® accounts for your water with the same precision as your CPA accounts for finances. With the regulations and the increase costs associated with water usage this information is invaluable.
SWIIM® System is offered as a full service, turn-key solution that produces a very accurate on-farm water budget. It provides cost-effective, field- or crop-level, actionable data including flow, consumption and subsurface water loss. It includes a comprehensive software suite that enables agricultural water users to plan, manage, report and ultimately optimize crop water use through the use of sensors, data loggers, telemetry and remote sensing via satellite.
A crop-water budget is produced with the data collected over 60 times an hour, aggregated, quality-checked and delivered to the client in an online report through multiple platforms, including a comprehensive written report. Our patented process co-developed with the help of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, monitors crop-water on- and off-flows, consumptive use, subsurface deliveries, precipitation and weather data to produce a comprehensive, defendable water budget that can then be balanced like you would your bank account. It also facilitates real-time decision-making and allows users to be aware of water overuse as it happens through real-time monitoring and pre-set alarm conditions.
This comprehensive, multi-dimensional information can be used for conservation or alternative water use, such as leasing to other agricultural uses, cities and industry in need. It also satisfies auditing and reporting requirements and related regulations. Growers located in water districts that pay incentives for water conservation will also benefit from the increased accuracy SWIIM delivers and may increase their income using the data given to them.
