Document Type: Journal Paper


Until recent years scientists knew very little about crop water requirements, rates at which different plants used water and particularly how climate influenced the water use rates of plants. In the past decade, however, water requirements of plants as influenced by climate have received considerable study and experimentation. This paper is devoted, primarily, to a discussion of the work that has been done in this field to date with particular emphasis on work done at the University of Florida.
