Urban Lawn Microclimates Affect Reference Evapotranspiration

Kenton W. Peterson, Dale J. Bremer, Jack D. Fry
2018 Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports  
Consequently, the use of weather stations located onsite, or at least in an urban lawn within the same region, may improve estimates of lawn irrigation requirements.  ...  Grass reference evapotranspiration (ET o ) obtained from weather stations in open locations is often used to estimate irrigation requirements of turfgrass in local or regional urban lawns.  ...  Less ET within urban lawns than in nearby open swards suggests using standard historical weather data to estimate irrigation amounts in urban lawns (based on ET o ) is problematic, because historical weather  ...
