Figure 2. Crop coefficient (Kc) for bell pepper grown with drip irrigation and plastic mulch in Florida. Note that the crop coefficient above includes mainly plant water use and not evaporation losses from the row-middles (derived from Shukla et al., 2012). Kc values for other plasticulture crops can be found at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/cv107.
