A general irrigation scheduling computer package called Micro-Scheduler has been developed. Since 1980, it has been used to schedule irrigation for over 1000 farm-seasons in Michigan and across the United States of America. The package utilizes real time weather data to schedule irrigation based on locally developed crop curves and rooting depths. The purpose of this paper is to describe the merits of the current version of Micro-Scheduler and its usefulness to Water Management Districts, Soil Conservation Districts, Cooperative Extension Agents, and large irrigation systems operators. © 1990.
