Synopsis

Synopsis

Measurements of net radiant energy available for evaporation of water from soil under corn show that when corn is fully grown, the maximum evaporation may constitute 25 to 50% of the total evapotranspiration, depending upon the population and method of planting. Fully grown corn does not provide sufficient interception of radiation to assure that the potential evapotranspiration condition of a fully covered surface is realized.
