Instructions:  Add daily evapotranspiration (ET) for each day since your last irrigation.  
This is the amount of water the crop has used. This amount plus 10-20% for efficiency must be added.  
Totals for two, three, four, five, and 7-days are added for you. 
         Rainfall is not included.  Subtract effective rainfall for each individual field. What is presented is 
the net amount of irrigation needed.  Add 10 to 20% for irrigation inefficiency.  You might add 20% for high  
pressure overhead sprinklers and add at least 10% for low pressure drop nozzles.  In the early season, do 
not irrigate until the amount needed is at least 0.50 inchesunless you are trying to keep the surface wet for  
emergence. Irrigating with small amounts wastes water as most of the water is lost to soil evaporation.
