Estimated Crop Evapotranspiration (ETc) for September 17-23, 2021
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the recent closing of the Dixon station and expansion of nut crops in southern Yolo and Solano Counties, we have removed Dixon and added the Staten Island station (242, near Walnut Grove) to these reports.
This report covers the CIMIS stations in Woodland, Davis, Staten Island, and Verona. More information on using ET Reports is available here. Bookmark this page and visit weekly for the most current report.
- Accumulations began on February 26, 2021, or on the approximate leafout date for a specific orchard crop.
- *Next week’s predicted ET is based on historical averages for the CIMIS station location.
- Estimates are for orchard floor conditions where vegetation is managed by some combination of strip applications of herbicides, frequent mowing or tillage, and by mid and late season shading and water stress. Weekly estimates of soil moisture loss can be as much as 25% higher in orchards where cover crops are planted and managed more intensively for maximum growth.
