Work has been done in the India Meteorological Department to determine experimentally daily evapotranspiration by lysimeters. Also water requirements and water use efficiencies of wheat, maize, sugarcane, bajra, ragi, cotton, groundnut, safflower, sesamum, gram, mung, oat, maize (forage), sorghum (forage) and paddy (both upland and low-land culture) have been studied.
