This website provides daily reference and weather data from a network of special weather stations and has on-line tools for use of this data for irrigation scheduling. This information is used for irrigation water management in agriculture and urban areas. Use of ET for irrigation water management significantly reduces water waste in irrigation and is recognized as an important water conservation practice. In addition to irrigation management, these data are used widely for a variety of purposes including water planning, wastewater application permits, and environmental management.
