Estimation of soil moisture deficit from meteorological factors
Keywords:soil moisture, potential evapotranspiration, water budgeting
Soil moisture deficit has been computed from rainfall, potential evapotranspiration and F curve at 30 and 45 cm depths of some representative stations of different climatic zones in India. The F curves show the graphical representation of the ratio of actual to potential evapotranspiration. Comparison of the results so computed with the observed soil moisture deficit shows that the method gives estimates with reasonable accuracy. The study is of practical importance for water budgeting and irrigation scheduling
