Irrigation Scheduling

The Wisconsin Irrigation Scheduling Program (WISP), is an irrigation water management tool developed by the Departments of Soil Science and Biological Systems Engineering at the Wisconsin-Madison. WISP is designed to help growers optimize crop water use efficiency by tracking the root zone water inputs and outputs (water balance).

Using WISP’s water balance predictions, along with root zone soil moisture monitoring, a grower can plan irrigation timing and amount to take maximum advantage of natural rainfall while minimizing over-application of water resulting in leaching.
