The crop water need for the whole growing season of tomatoes is 786 mm. In hot climate the evaporation loss is more and hence the water Where, IR is the irrigation requirement of crops at field head, ER is the effective rainfall and S is the amount of moisture contributed from the soil profile either as stored moisture and/or that However, there is a substantial the so-called reference crop evapotranspiration or reference evapotranspiration, is denoted as ETo. Hence the water requirement is symbolically represented as: WR = T + E + WP + WL + WSP or WR = IR + ER + S or WR = CU + WL + WSP CU = E + T + WP IR - Irrigation S - Contribution from ground water table. The following are the factors which affect on the water requirements of the crops, i. Pepper has a water requirement of 2850 to 3320 m3/ha, to employ 14 to 15 irrigation, with an actual evapotranspiration from 350 to 450 mm for the western region.

Seasonal water requirements are computed by adding these components: where, WR = Water requirement of crop (mm) IR = Amount of irrigation water applied (mm) ER = Effective rainfall Crop water requirement varies with time and space, as the evapotranspirative demand varies with local climate and crop condition. If rice required about 8cm depth of water at an average interval of about 12days, and the crop period for rice is 120days. CWR = Kc * ETo * 31 = 0.57 * 4.4 * 31 = 77.8 mm/month. In other words, crop water requirement is total water demand for growing a crop. According to Table 3, the total water Growth stages of maize crop are sowing, four leaf stage, knee high, grand growth, tasseling, silking early dough The data and methods used to calculate the The high crop water requirement for the initial stage than of the development stage is the 20 days differences between the two stages; the former has 30 days of stay period (Figure-2) TABLE :1 The crop water use estimates currently being used were created in the early 1980s using, what would now be considered, outdated methods. irrigation, total net irrigation, actual water use by crop and potential water use by crop is given in the Table 2. 1) Frequency of irrigation.

The Irrigation Calculator provides broad guidance for water requirements of commercial crops produced in Western Australia. CWR = Kc The crop water requirement for the initial growth stage varies between 33 and 68 mm in different counties. The range of water requirement was 3885 mm for the developmental stage, 140265 mm for the middle stage, and 68116 mm during the last growth phase.

Influence of Climate. The planting date was August 1 and the average daily ETc for weeks one and two was 0.11 inches In regions of the world where crop water demand cannot be met by rainwater, only part of the crop water requirement is satisfied by green water (i.e. actual evapotranspiration). Irrigation can be used to supplement the crops water needs, thereby allowing crops to evapotranspire at the potential rate. 900-2500 : Chillies. 3-5 Effective precipitation, irrigation depths, and crop water requirement (ETc)..66 3-6 Plant size means and summaries of analyses of variance for Grower and UF plots ..67 3-7 Mean CROP Annual obtainable fuel yield Energy yield Evapotranspiration equivalent Potential crop evapotranspiration Rainfed crop evapotranspiration Irrigated crop water Chapter 2 describes the processes that affect water use requirements for a crop, field, farm, group of farms, or project level evaluation. The processes water requirements Table 22 Proper and optimal scheduling of irrigation using CROPWAT 8.0 enabled the efficient water use to 70%.The crop water requirement for maize crop was found to be 304 mm and irrigation requirement 288.2 mm. The following is the summary of irrigation requirements (mm) of different crops under varying water-table depths. BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF MAIN CROPS Sowing time, harvesting time, seed requirements, average yield and average water depth requirements, of most of the crops have According to Tables 2 and 3 the total annual irrigation requirements for all crops do not vary much across years and range from 1223 to 1415 mm per year. The following are the possible factors that affect the water requirements of crops. Water requirement of any crop depends on crop factors such as variety, growth stage, and duration of plant, plant population It is defined as, The quantity of water required by a crop in a given period of time for normal growth under field conditions.. The crop water requirement (mm yr -1) is the volume of water required to compensate for a crops evapotranspiration losses and to prevent crop water stress. Texture and structure of the soil and its moisture storage capacity. Hence the idea about crop water requirement is essential for farm planning with respect to total quantity of water needed and its efficient use Then, the crop water requirements are calculated for each month as: CWR = Kc * ETo * 15 = 0.5 * 3.5 * 15 = 26.2 mm/month. Crop water requirement represents the Different crops have different water requirements and respond differently to water stress. The daily ETc was averaged from 2000 to 2017 for southwest Georgia. Crop water demand can also be expressed in term of supply as: WR = IRR + ER +S +GWC (26.2) Where: Irrigation systems must supply enough water over prolonged periods to satisfy the difference be- tween evapotranspiration demands and rainfall. Water stored in the crop root zone can supply part of the crop demand. However, the volume of water that can be extracted from the soil cannot exceed the amount that will induce crop water stress. The reference surface is a hypothetical grass reference crop with an assumed crop This was calculated for each zone in New Jersey, (North, Central, and South), based on averaging crop water requirements developed The water requirement of maize is higher but it is very efficient in water use. Water Requirements, (modified Blaney Criddle method). The effect of climate on Crop Water requirement is given by the reference crop evapotransiration (ETo) It measures the evaporative power of the atmosphere independently of crop type, crop 8cm of water at an average of 12 days 2crop evapotranspiration under non-standard conditions (ETc adj) is the evapotranspiration from crops grown under management and environmental conditions that differ from the Periodically check soil water at different depths within the root zone and at different growth stages to avoid stressing the crop during critical growth stages.
