IES is a web tool that simulates, in a virtual crop, the irrigation schedules proposed by users. At the same time it compares the results with the irrigation scheduling that an expert would program. By means of the comparison of the different categories of irrigation, the recommendation of good practices as weel as the the training about the main concepts, the users of this tool are able to learn to optimize the use of water maximizing their production. The project is supported by a base of examples based on the agronomic knowledge that irrigation experts have configured with the aim of finding the closest approach and adapt it for each study case.
You can create your simulation logging in the web www.ies-sim.com. In the website you only have to sign up and define your virtual plot from which you can schedule the irrigation in order to improve your common irrigation practices.
The IES simulator will be accessible from 2016 from RuralCat portal (www.ruralcat.net) which is supported by the Department of agriculture, livestock, fisheries, food and natural environment of the Government of Catalonia (DAAM).
