Measured evapotranspiration (consumptive use) data from irrigated areas in western United States were collected, re-evaluated, and combined with estimates of solar radiation. Approximately 1,000 measurements for individual sampling periods for various crops were useable. The results provide mean numerical values to use in a dimensionless energy balance equation for predicting evapotranspiration.
