Alberta Irrigation Management Model

The Alberta Irrigation Management Model (AIMM) is a decision support tool software package that assists irrigation producers with their irrigation scheduling decisions. The AIMM software runs as a Windows based program and has a agronomic record keeping component incorporated into the program as well. AIMM acquires the climate parameters required to calculate Evapotranspiration (ET) and irrigation recommendations from the IMCIN website. Producers simply choose the station that is closest to their irrigation field from any of the current climate stations on-line.

Additional information regarding the AIMM software can be found in the
AIMM Technical Information Document.

AIMM software can be downloaded from this website or a CD can be obtained from one of the Locations listed near the bottom of this page. The software is supported by the following operating systems: Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP, Vista. Once you have obtained the software package, run the setup.exe file and follow the on-screen prompts.
