This paper offers a scientific basis for precise estimation of water status of agroecosystems. It offers a technology for current monitoring and managing of this status during the growing season of crops and decision support system (DSS).Based on 30-year experimental data, we introduced a new integral index of energy levels for estimating, stage crop susceptibility, extreme-critical, critical and important stages of the growing season. Using these tools, we can create s specific water status necessary to obtain a planned amount and quality of crop yield, minimizing the soil structure destruction by irrigation and pollution of underground water.
