Farmers in the developing countries usually  adapt calendar-based irrigation scheduling,resulting poor water use efficiency. Whereas the use of existing available tools/models for irrigation scheduling is limited to research organizations or in the large scale –farming systems due to complex parameterization and huge data requirement.  A simple and farmer friendly Water Impact Calculator (WIC),which aims to increase water use efficiency in agricultural systems has developed using data from strategic  research  through a desktop study.
