irrigation strategies that conserve water without significantly affecting yield. A study showed that field corn yield was significantly correlated with crop evapotranspiration ( Payero et al. 2008 ). Yazar et al. (1999 ) evaluated the effect of six

evapotranspiration (ET c ) from weather data collected by the University of Georgia Weather Network weather station in Tifton. These data were used to calculate ET o from air temperature, solar radiation, wind speed, and relative humidity using the Penman

and Florida are based on variations of the WB method ( Harrison, 2009 ). The WB method estimates daily crop water use based on historic evapotranspiration (ET o ) values for a region adjusted with a crop coefficient (K c ) ( Allen et al., 1998

Evapotranspiration (ET) is a dominating factor in the water cycle for most agricultural crops including citrus and plays a critical role in irrigation management ( Bates et al., 2008 ; Castel et al., 1987 ; Jia et al., 2007 ; Morgan, 1992

( Vaccinium ) irrigation exist, but few studies report actual water use or crop evapotranspiration (ETc) for blueberry, especially in the southeastern United States where SHB on heavily amended soils predominate. Dourte et al. (2010) studied plant water use

(ASABE) has recently defined mixed-species landscape water use normalized to reference evapotranspiration as plant factors, rather than crop coefficients ( ASABE, 2012 ; Beeson et al., 2014 ; Sun et al., 2012a ). The new S623 Standard attempts to define
