Washington State University has launched a website that allows users to customize it so they receive only irrigation agricultural information relevant to them.

Dubbed the Irrigated Agriculture Information Service, the site can be found at http://extension.wsu.edu/irrigatedag, according to a news release.

Users can choose from more than 35 topic areas, including apples, winegrapes and drip irrigation.

They also can sign up to receive pest alerts.

Once users create an account and select topics, they can always return later and change preferences.

“We want to provide members of the irrigated agriculture industry with only the information they want, when and where they need it,” Andy McGuire, a WSU Extension educator based in Grant County, said in the release. “We want to get research results and other information out as quickly as possible to those that use it on a daily basis."

The system replaces old print-based information systems.
