Setting an accurate irrigation schedule for your landscape is one of the most challenging activities for landscapers, homeowners, and water managers. It requires detailed information from the landscape and up-to-date information on weather and evapotranspiration. It’s time-consuming and often requires a visit to the controller to make changes.

Smart irrigation controllers that generate their schedules provide the most efficient water use. In addition, providing a customized irrigation schedule based on the plant’s needs improves plant health and growth. Finally, these schedules require input for the landscape, but once that is entered, the savings start adding up with every watering.  

During this webinar, Andy Belingheri, National Sales Manager for Rivulis Irrigation, will take us through the steps needed to set an accurate irrigation schedule. He will demonstrate how easy it is to set up an intelligent controller to scientifically set an irrigation schedule and how it updates based on real-time evapotranspiration (‘ET’).

During this webinar, you will learn the following:

  • What data do you need to collect to set an irrigation schedule
  • How weather factors into an irrigation schedule
  • The landscape information you need to develop a schedule
  • How JAIN Unity software creates a schedule and accurately updates it with weather information daily
