Commercial Turf Irrigation Scheduling

Using weather information to adjust your watering schedule will save water, reduce water cost, reduce the need for fertilizer, and improve the heath of your turf. Weather based scheduling works by referencing local weather conditions and calculating how much water your turf needs. The estimates how long to run your watering system. Since the need for water varies throughout the year you should regularly adjust your watering times.

This tutorial will take you step by step through the process of using WATERIGHT to schedule your irrigation system.
