SWIIM® stands for Sustainable Water and Innovative Irrigation Management®. It provides a new standard in water measurement than allows growers to receive an accurate accounting of the water both delivered and consumed on their fields. This patented process was developed with the help of the USDA and is being used successfully by both growers and water providers. SWIIM accounts for your water with the same precision as your CPA accounts for finances. With the regulations and the increase costs associated with water usage this information is invaluable.
Thought leader Don Cameron comments on his use of the SWIIM system over the past few years and the benefits he sees in his operation.
