CropWaterBalance: Climate Water Balance for Irrigation Purposes

Calculates daily climate water balance for irrigation purposes and also calculates the reference evapotranspiration (ET) using three methods, Penman and Monteith (Allen et al. 1998, ISBN:92-5-104219-5); Priestley and Taylor (1972) <doi:10/cr3qwn>; or Hargreaves and Samani (1985) <doi:10.13031/2013.26773>. Users may specify a management allowed depletion (MAD), which is used to suggest when to irrigate. The functionality allows for the use of crop and water stress coefficients as well.
