******* NEW SOFTWARE FOR IRRIGATION SCHEDULING FOR UP TO 480 ZONES AND TEN CONTROLLERS for 2017 *******
NON-CEU's Commercial Irrigation Scheduling $300.00
This class will demonstrate how software can provide effective irrigation scheduling for commercial irrigation sites. The software will accommodate of to 480 independent zones and up to 10 controllers. The software will provide a reliable method of determining the precipitation rates ( Five different methods) and utilize ET based irrigating scheduling. The software will allow for multiple methods of obtaining ET and will include a pre-loaded ET data base for 54 cities in Texas. The software will calculate the optimized irrigation schedule for all zones. The software will utilize the user defined "Watering Window" to establish the irrigation schedule. The schedule will be generated in either time (minutes) or gallons, or both. The software has a complete drought/water restriction function that will automatically calculate the run times for the watering that is defined by the end user. In the event of severe restrictions, the software will recommend which zones could be turned off. Once these recommendations are acted upon, the water that is freed up will then be applied to the other zones. The user can select which zones by specific number or by landscape type for this to apply to. This software will allow any property manager or irrigator the ability to effectively plan and manage irrigation systems during normal or drought conditions. The software has many more options. This class is not a CEU class. The course cost includes lunch, manual, eight hours of hands on training, support and the software! Class space is limited.
