From Table 11.3.1,
p
= 0.33, c = 1.0, K
c
= 0.8, C
cu
= 0.5. Using BlaneyCriddle
formula,
ET

= c[p(0.46T + 8)]
i) T = 20

Volume of water consumptively used per acre land = 4.54 acmm/day
= 0.015 acft/day
Volume of irrigation water required
= (volume of water consumptively used)/C
cu

= 0.030 acft/day
ii) T = 25
o
C:
ET

= 1.0[0.33(0.46(25) + 8)] = 6.44 mm/day
E
T
c
= 0.8(6.44) = 5.15 mm/day
Volume of water consumptively used per acre land = 5.15 acmm/day
= 0.017 acft/day
Volume of irrigation water required
= (volume of water consumptively used)/C
cu
= 0.017/0.5
= 0.034 acft/day
iii) T = 30

C:

T
c
= 0.8(7.19) = 5.76 mm/day
Volume of water consumptively used per acre land = 5.76 acmm/day
= 0.019 acft/day
Volume of irrigation water required
= (volume of water consumptively used)/C
cu

= 0.038 acft/day
Using the volume of irrigation water required when T = 20
o
C as a reference value,
the percent increase at the remaining temperature values may be determined for
comparison purposes, as given in the following Table.
