Evapotranspiration-based irrigation scheduling tools for use in eastern Colorado
Accurate evapotranspiration (ET) information can be used to improve irrigation water management in eastern Colorado. Crop ET information can be used to help an irrigation manager make decisions on when to initiate irrigation and to determine how much water should be applied. ET information can be obtained through the use of specialized equipment, estimated using models, or obtained from sources such as Colorado Agricultural Meteorological Network (CoAgMet) (http://climate.colostate.edu/~coagmet/). This study has one main focus, the testing of tools for use in ET-based irrigation scheduling. The ...
