Water Meter Calculator App
This University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension iPhone app will help irrigators calculate the amount of water pumped by their irrigation pumping plant.
The Water Meter Calculator App allows the user to store data, such as field size in acres, flow meter units and allocation and annual irrigation caps for each field.
The app is available for download at the Apple App Store for $1.99. It is also available in the Google Play store.
Available while supplies last. Currently we have 50 sensors available.
If you are wanting more than 4 Sets, please contact your local NRCS office or our main office in Alma for an accurate application.
