The SWIIM Planner provides irrigators an accurate, economic and immediate way to conserve water and potentially increase their crop and water rights income. Tested by municipalities and government agencies, SWIIM is an academic-endorsed technology that improves the economic viability of irrigated farms.
Simply put: It works.

Farming and ranching systems are complex and they require sophisticated analytical tools to make correct and optimal decisions. Fortunately, with the availability of easy to access data, with inexpensive computing power, and with clever software like SWIIM Planner, farmers and ranchers can best decide how to use their portfolios of water assets.

SWIIM gives farmers the opportunity to look at what their economic options are. It suggests to them what crops that they can grow, what kind of yields they can expect, what kind of water they should use. SWIIM is a packaged tool that allows farmers to look at how to sell or lease their water, and yet keep enough back to continue farming.
