Crop Coefficient (Kc)

Crop Coefficients (Kc) are crop specific evapotranspiration values generated by research used with reference evapotranspiration data to estimate the crop’s evapotranspiration requirement (ETc). ETc is calculated by multiplying the crop coefficient (Kc) by the reference evapotranspiration value (ETo).
