Subject: corn water use

Northeast Nebraska and Candelaria Philippines

Found this interesting. Charts average water use, and gives an example on water use on 1 particular year. Notice the period shortly after 6/9. Average water use is around .2 per day, but on the example year it hit .4

This must be because of high temps and winds?

So I'm guessing this year the ET rates will be slightly higher than average.

Also notice July where it uses .3 per day. That's 2.1 inch per week. Most of the USA doesn't get that 2.1 per week in July, so where does this come from????? Answer: The Tank...

The tank is empty though...

Anyone have a soil moisture probe and care to share the data?
