Proper management of irrigation water is increasingly important for agriculture producers in Texas. Irrigation scheduling tools assist producers by increasing water use efficiency. Below are examples of tools created for irrigation scheduling.
TAWC Solutions provides a simple web-based management decision tool and an ET (evapotranspiration) tool that can aid in improved management decisions in the application of irrigation water.

The Texas ET Network and website provide real-time evapotranspiration data from a state-wide weather station network with tools to allow users to determine irrigation requirements in agricultural and urban landscapes. Weather information, irrigation watering recommendations, and useful tips for irrigation scheduling are provided.
The Irrigation Association offers tools and calculators along with other resources for irrigation professionals. The site also provides information on finding evapotranspiration data for every state in the U.S.
