The Evapotranspiration module computes the daily evapotranspiration.

It is the water loss of plants by transpiration and soil by evaporation.


The method uses the Hargreaves and Samani formula. There are dozens of formula Wikipedia Evapotranspiration.

The advantages of this methodology is to use only outside temperature and latitutde (and day of year).

The result is given in mm of water per day (increasing during the course of de day).
