## Consumptive Use of Water

I. INTRODUCTION

Consumptive water use is water removed from available supplies without returning to a
water source or system. It is the amount of water transpired during plant growth plus what
evaporates from the soil surface and foliage in the crop area. Weather data are acquired first to
compute for the consumptive water use. The data computed is then used in agriculture to
estimate the how much soil moisture was eliminated from the soil. Through these, irrigation
scheduling suited for crop use is developed to attain its optimum growth and maximum yield.

II. OBJECTIVES
1. to determine potential evapotranspiration using some selected equations;
2. to derive consumptive use crop coefficient using some selected crops; and,
3. to predict actual evapotranspiration using estimated potential evapotranspiration.

## III. MATERIALS AND EQUIPMENT

Textbook (Irrigation Principles and Practices by Israelsen, et al.); PAGASA weather data,
calculator, graphing paper; computer.

IV. METHODOLOGY
A. Determination of Potential Evapotranspiration
1. Went to CLSU PAGASA Agromet station and get a month of weather data, each student
with different months for analysis.
2. With the given climatic data, daily potential evapotranspiration (ETp) in CLSU is estimated
using the following equations:
a. Modified Penman-Monteith
b. Jensen-Haise
c. Hargreaves
3. Using the t-test (group or paired comparison), whether there are significant differences are
determined on the estimated daily ETp of the different equations. The group comparisons will
involve the following:
a. Pair No. 1: Modified Penman-Monteith vs. Jensen-Haise
b. Pair No. 2: Modified Penman-Monteith vs. Hargreaves
c. Pair No. 3: Jensen-Haise vs. Hargreaves
4. Results of the comparisons are interpreted
B. Derivation of Consumptive Use Crop Coefficient
1. Given the experimental crop coefficients of some crops, derive the crop coefficient equations
for the following crops: small grains, beans, peas, potatoes, and corn.
2. The following mathematical model is used:
Where: kc- crop coefficient
a- intercept
d- days of growing season
x- slope of the line relating kc to d
3. The following are the estimated days of the growing season and effective cover for the above
mentioned crops:
CROP GROWING SEASON FULL EFFECTIVE COVER
(days) (days after planting
Small grains 120 60
Beans 130 60
Peas 120 50
Potatoes 120 60
Corn 120 55

4. Plot the kc curve of each group using the derived equation and using the raw data with kc as
the ordinate and days of the growing season as the abscissa
C. Predicting Actual Evapotranspiration
1. Using the estimated ETp in Part A, estimate the actual daily evapotranspiration (ETa) of each
crop in part B.
2. Derive ETa equation for each crop using the suggested mathematical model in Part B.
3. Plot the estimated and predicted daily ETa values of each crop.
ETa = kc x ETp

## VI. CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATION

Through the use of weather data acquired in the CLSU Agrometeorology Weather
Station such as minimum and maximum temperature, relative humidity, Clear Solar Day Radiation,
Average Solar Day Radiation, Wind speed etc., Daily Consumptive use of water is determined
using the Modified Penman-Mointeth, Jensen-Haise, and Hargreaves. The formulas are as follows:
Hargreaves:

Jensen-Haise

Modified Penman-Mointeth

Consumptive use crop coefficient using crops such as small grains, beans, peas,
potatoes and corns are derived using the formula:
Actual evapotranspiration using estimated potential evapotranspiration are
predicted through the use of the formula:

ETa= kc x ETp
