The IRMA_SYSTEM (arta.irrigation-management.eu/) is a regional, user-friendly computer/mobile-based, open and free modular software for estimating site specific crop water requirements and irrigation scheduling at multiple scales, from farm to water basin level, with high spatial resolution.
The system takes into account historical (from the system’s stations - system.irrigation-management.eu/) and forecast agrometeorological data, along with crop and soil-water data to accomplish the above mentioned tasks.
Also, it is fully customizable, allowing the users to add site specific information in order to customize the output of the system, taking advantage of additional information.
The source is available at: github.com/openmeteo/aira, under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation, written in Python and Django, along with NumPy (www.numpy.org/) and GDAL - Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (www.gdal.org/) modules.

IRMA_SYS introduces the concept of Supervisors.

A supervisor is assigned to another system user, by the user himself, in order to utilize the IRMA_SYS in his account.
Every user is able to declare himself as a supervisor, in his/hers Account menu, but in our perspective a supervisor is considered to be either:
  1. An irrigation guru, which is a scientist in the field of Irrigation and Drainage
  2. A certified professional, that can supervise a number of irrigators as generic consultant or in the framework of an applied quality cultivation system (i.e. organic farming, integrated management etc)
  3. or
  4. A user with great experience regarding irrigation and drainage issues
Through a list, available in his/hers Account menu, the user is able to choose one from the already declared supervisors and provide access to his fields to him.
A supervisor has no access to any other information apart form the registered fields in the IRMA_SYS.
The user, at his will, removes or changes the supervisor from his/hers Account menu also.

In this context, potential supervisors and certified professionals are encouraged to post their work contact details, along with their IRMA_SYS usernames, in order for the users to easily contact them.
