The thickness of the burned strip indicates the magnitude of solar radiation, but it is difficult to convert this into an amount. Hence, this is most useful for indicating the duration of sunshine (direct solar radiation) rather than the amount. 7 SUMMARY This chapter includes climatic instruments to measure rainfall, temperature, relative humidity, wind, evaporation from a free water surface, sun radiation and long wave radiation.

3 SOIL WATER STRESS COEFFICIENT (KS) The soil water stress coefficient, Ks, is mainly estimated by its relationship to the average soil moisture content or matric potential in a soil layer and it can usually be © 2016 by Apple Academic Press, Inc. 18 Applications of Furrow and Micro Irrigation in Arid and Semi-Arid Regions estimated by an empirical formula based in soil water content or relative soil water available content [124]. The Ks is an important coefficient because it indicates the sensitivity of the crop to water deficit conditions, for example, corn grain yield is especially sensitive to moisture stress during tasselling and continuing through grain fill.

ETc = (Kcb + Ke) ETo (6) Kcb = (ETc/ETo) – Ke (7) The soil evaporation (E) can be calculated using the Eqs. (8) and (9): E = Ke × ETo (8) and Ke = E/ETo (9) The soil evaporation (E) can be measured using the water balance Eq. 001 to 1). The ratio of reference evaporation to reference transpiration depends on the development stage of the leaf canopy expressed as “δ” the dimensionless fraction of incident beam radiation that penetrates the canopy [15] mentioned by Zhang et al. [124]. LAI  © 2016 by Apple Academic Press, Inc.
