From The Fence Post:

The new tool will help irrigators calculate the amount of money they could save by improving the efficiency of their system, said Tom Dorn, Lancaster County Extension educator, who developed the tool. Irrigators need to determine whether the pumping plant uses more energy than the Nebraska pumping plant performance criteria suggest it should, Dorn said. “To do that, all irrigators need to do is enter data from irrigation records into the online spreadsheet,” Dorn said. The spreadsheet is available at http://lancaster.unl.edu/ag/crops/Long_Term_Pump.xls.
