Irrigation rates and hydromodule in the new conditions in Albania

Description

In order to make the best possible planning and to get the highest possible production, plants should be provided with the optimal amount of water. This amount depends mainly on the type of plant, pedological characteristics of the soil, hydrological conditions of the area and geographical position.

Before the ‘90s in Albania, calculations for irrigation rates for different cultures were made by determining the Evapotranspiration with the methods Blaney - Criddle, Thornthwaite and Quijano, with Blaney – Criddle being the most used method.

After ‘90s, the structure and types of plants that were planted before were changed, but also we have a change in the amount of rainfall during the vegetation period.

This paper consists of the definition of Evapotranspiration using the FAO Penman-Monteith method for Albania for different cultures and soils.

The results of this work serve for a better planning of water resources, given that the trend of atmospheric precipitation is declining.
