Overall, it can be said that the time series model developed in this study did provide superior forecasting results for the Brawley, CA, site. This indicates that the monthly reference crop evapotranspiration rate for agricultural regions of California could potentially be forecast using the time series approach and that additional data sets should be collected and analyzed to further verify this procedure.
