Title: EVAPOTRANSPIRATION OF SELECTED CEREALS IN NIGER STATE
Authors: MOHAMMED, B .
Issue Date: Apr-1994
Abstract: This Project work presents the determination of evapotranspiration for wheat, maize, sorghum and millet in Niger State. Based on grass reference evapotranspiration ETo, with the FAO Irrigation and Drainage Paper - 24 proceedure and crop coefficients eKc) , using measured data from meteorological station for a period of 15 years, and local information on the crops considered. From the statistical analysis carried out and the data requirements of the various models used, the modified Penman method was adopted, Kc curves for each of the crops were developed. Evapotranspiration and crop water requirement at various stages of growth for the crops were determined. A computer programme for determining ETo was also developed. The Kc curves and the crop evapotranspiration determined can be recommended for use in water management decisions throughout the State.
