Accurate estimations of Actual Evapotranspiration (ETa) are a prerequisite for optimal irrigation scheduling. Quantification of ETa at critical growth stages can be used to avoid water stress in crops. For large irrigated areas, remote sensing techniques are important tools for ETa assessments. This paper describes the application of a simplified remote sensing algorithm (SSEBI-2) to derive daily estimates of actual evapotranspiration for the Tadla irrigation perimeter in Morocco.
