This video demonstrates how to use your soil water data and tables of normal crop water use and precipitation for August and September to decide how to conduct the last few irrigations of the season. The goal is to use as much water in the soil profile as possible without lowering yield so the winter/spring precipitation can be stored in the soil rather than running off or deep percolating. This video completes the series by Nebraska Extension Educator Steve Melvin.

Advanced Irrigation Scheduling Techniques demonstrates additional options, including how to estimate inches of available water in the root zone, determine how much irrigation would be needed to refill to field capacity, and estimate how many days it will be until the crop needs water. Another advanced strategy is creating and maintaining a dryer zone at the 12- to 24-inch depth. The strategy can assure minimal deep percolation and create a place to store rain, but does not require any math. These charts and additional information are available in Irrigation Scheduling Strategies When Using Soil Water Data (EC3036), a Nebraska Extension publication.
