The SIMDualKc model was used to simulate crop water requirements for a super high density olive orchard in the region of Alentejo, Portugal. This model uses the dual crop coefficient approach to estimate and partitioning the actual crop evapotranspiration (ETc act) and therefore to perform the soil water balance. The model was calibrated with 2011 tree transpiration using trunk sap flow measurements and was validated using similar data from 2012 and tested with 2013 data. Low root mean square er...

Reports on the annual effects of deficit irrigation regimes on olive trees are critical in shedding light on their impacts on water use, yield, and water productivity in distinct olive growing climate regions of the world. From the account of a four-year experiment, the aim of this work is to add insight into such effects on olive growing in southern Portugal. We worked with trees in an intensive ‘Cobrancosa’ orchard (300 trees ha−1) under full irrigation (FI) treatment and two regulated deficit...

Evapotranspiration (ETc) partitioning and obtaining of FAO56 dual crop coefficient (Kc) for olive was carried out with the SIMDualKc software application for root zone and topsoil soil water balance based on the dual crop coefficients. A simplified two source-energy balance model (STSEB), based on daily remotely sensed soil and canopy thermal infrared data and retrieval of surface fluxes, also provided information on partitioning ETc for the olive orchard. Both models were calibrated and validat...

METRIC™ is a satellite-based surface energy balance model aimed at estimating and mapping crop evapotranspiration (ET). It has been applied to a large range of vegetation types, mostly annual crops. When applied to anisotropic woody canopies, such as olive orchards, extensions are required to algorithms for estimating the leaf area index (LAI), surface temperature, and momentum roughness length ( Z om ). The computation of the radiometric surface temperature needs to consider a three-source cond...

Summary The estimation of crop evapotranspiration (ET c ) from the reference evapotranspiration (ET o ) and a standard crop coefficient ( K c ) in olive orchards requires that the latter be adjusted to planting density and height. The use of the dual K c approach may be the best solution because the basal crop coefficient K cb represents plant transpiration and the evaporation coefficient reproduces the soil coverage conditions and the frequency of wettings. To support related computations for a...
