Page under reconstruction

Due to a major overhaul of Soil Science's Web infrastucture, some of our products are broken right now. Unfortunately, you've found one. We are working hard on it and hope to have them all back up in a couple of days. We apologize for the inconvenience. (2013-11-19)

Soil Science

This calculator allows cranberry growers to estimate the monthly consumptive water use of their beds. The estimate is based on the research of Bland et al. (1996, Agric. and Forest Meteorol. 81:1-12), which demonstrated well-watered cranberry ET to be just slightly higher than the "equilibrium ET." Values supplied here are derived from the University of Wisconsin-Madison estimation of the Priestley-Taylor potential evapotranspiration, corrected following Bland et al. (1996).
