Awareness of evapotranspiration (ET) and crop coefficient (K c ) is necessary for irrigation management in coffee crops. ET and K c spatial variabilities are disregarded in traditional methods. Methods based on radiometric measurements have potential to obtain these spatialized variables. The K c curve and spatial variability of actual evapotranspiration (ET a ) were determined using images from Landsat 8 satellite. We used images of young and adult coffee plantations from OLI (Operational Land
more &raquo; ... Imager) and TIRS (Thermal Infrared Sensor) sensors over a two-year period. Evapotranspiration was estimated using the Surface Energy Balance Algorithm for Land (SEBAL). Moreover, the reference evapotranspiration (ET o ) was estimated through the Penman-Monteith method. We obtained the values for the evapotranspiration fraction (ET f ), analogous to K c , according to ET and ET o values. The study was conducted in Buritis, Minas Gerais State, Brazil, in areas cropped with Coffea arabica irrigated by central pivots. A comparative analysis was made using different statistical indices. Average ET a was 2.17 mm d -1 for young coffee plantations, , and the K c mean value was 0.6. For adult coffee plantations, average ET a was 3.95 mm d -1 , , and the K c mean value was 0.85. The ET c and K c data obtained based on the SEBAL algorithm displayed similar values to studies that used traditional methods. This model has huge potential to estimate ET of different stages of coffee plantation for the region studied.
