Energy Trust of Oregon offers incentive for scientific irrigation scheduling
Energy Trust of Oregon (ETO) just launched a new incentive program to help nurseries implement scientific irrigation scheduling. Nurseries can receive $5.20 per acre, up to 100 percent of the cost of the service, for up to three years. The program is targeted toward field production and entails working with an experienced vendor, using software with built in algorithms and evapotranspiration rates, and gathering data through moisture monitors and weather stations. The end result? Information on when to schedule irrigation, how to optimize crop yield, and savings through reduced water and energy use.
