SWIIM®’s advanced, scalable crop-water planning, management, monitoring and reporting toolset works on water delivered to the field by surface and pipe, in any region. The SWIIM® Solution is used by our clients for many purposes including tracking water use efficiencies, auditing actual water used (near real-time) and tracking saved applied, consumed and sub-surface water use. The system works on all irrigation methods (drip, sprinkler and furrow) and any combination of methods on a single, or multiple fields.
SWIIM® Planner is customized for each region in which it is deployed. Co-developed under a multi-year research and development contract with the US Department of Agriculture, the software utilizes region-specific data, which is then compared against real-life activities in the field, verified with SWIIM® Certification.
WHAT CAN SWIIM DO?
SWIIM® Planner provides an easy-to-use interface and is designed for growers, agricultural land owners and farm managers to optimize their farm income and water use. Using the co-developed U.S. Department of Agricultural modeling algorithm, model your operation using self-selected changed practices or use your current water allocation as a baseline. Growers and water right owners enter their farm information graphically, including size, crop composition, and other specifics. The software then suggests the best cropping inventory and irrigation techniques to use on each field, around the limitations specifically imposed by the user. SWIIM® Certification offers users with a third-party measurement and verification of water deliveries, consumption, efficiency, and realized conservation – that is, the full water balance. SWIIM® staff provides all equipment needs including installation, maintenance, data acquisition, quality control, monitoring, and complete reporting. Reports are available throughout the growing season with the final water balance at the conclusion. SWIIM® Certification services will then track actual results throughout the crop season looking for areas to optimize both applied and consumed water use. Be alerted immediately if you are exceeding your season-wide water budget and adjust accordingly. Follow remotely monitored evapotranspiration (ET) readings acquired through multiple sources to make optimal irrigation decisions. Receive certification of water use and conservation. Use the reporting for your stakeholders and/or government agency compliance.
