Abstract

Crop selection and soil management practices can be based on accurate estimates of evapotranspiration—water loss from the soil by direct evaporation and by plant transpiration—derived from climatic analysis. Growth of crop plants is dependent on the three major factors of soil, climate and management. Soil and management have been studied more thoroughly and are better understood than the factor of climate.
