The paper firstly analyzed meteorological influences on rice water requirement referring to temperature, wind speed, air saturation deficit and sunshine hours. Then, it analyzed the other meteorological factors' influences. Through introduction of natural water surface evaporation factor, a multivariable linear equation with five variables was established for rice water requirement. A five variable linear equation model, FAO56 Penman-Monteith formula and a four variable linear equation which

It shows that multivariable linear equation with five variables has a more accuracy, compared with Penman-Monteith formula and four variable linear equation. As a regional empirical formula, the five variable linear equation can be applied in cold area.
