Irrigation scheduling is a process by which the timing and amount of water applied are determined to meet the evapotranspiration demands of the crop. Both the water delivery system and the availability of water to the plant need to be considered in

(2006–14), irrigation was scheduled to replace 100% of the previous day’s evapotranspiration (ET) based on evaporation from an electronic atmometer (ET gauge Co., Loveland, CO) according to Parchomchuk et al. (1996) , modified by crop coefficients. A
