Cotton Irrigation Tool

https://www.csrl.ars.usda.gov/wewc/CottonIrrigTool/index.php

Dropping Ogallala aquifer levels and changing commodity prices and energy costs make irrigation management an important but uncertain issue to west Texas cotton producers. For example, is deficit or full irrigation more profitable under the current lint price and pumping cost conditions? Also, what is the best way to divide production into dryland and irrigated acreage with limited well capacity? To help producers answer these questions this web application estimates the effects of irrigation on the profitability of center pivot cotton production on the Southern High Plains. It's main purpose is to show the impact of irrigation on yield and the related effects on both profits per acre and profits over a center pivot area with combined dryland and irrigated production.
