IrrigatePump helps producers identify irrigation pumping plants that are underperforming and need to be adjusted, repaired, or replaced with a better design. The app uses existing records to help determine when pumping plants should be treated by a professional. Taking advantage of the large screen for the tablet, the iPad app includes all information on one screen. Data entry on the left and the results on the right.
An easy-to-use design guides the user to input six numbers related to pumping lift, pressure at the discharge, acre-inches of water pumped, fuel price, and total fuel used.
The app then calculates a pumping plant performance rating. It also provides an estimated cost to bring the pumping plant up to standard and the number of years necessary to pay back the investment at various interest rates. The calculator compares the fuel used for your pumping plant with the Nebraska Pumping Plant Performance Criteria (NPC).
