Evapotranspiration

Evapotranspiration (ET) represents the loss of water from the Earth's surface from the combination of direct evaporation and plant transpiration. ET is usually expressed as a rate such as inches per day. Knowledge of ET is important for irrigation scheduling but it is also an important factor for other land use applications such as septic tank drain fields, watershed level budgeting, and climate and weather models.
ET can be used as a historical tool but usually it is predicted or used in the forecast to help irrigators optimize irrigation.

Factors Affecting ET:
Current weather conditions, plant type, soil conditions (soil chemistry and soil salinity), and geographical location are the primary factors affecting ET rates.
