Tho evaporation almost equaled the
amount of water applied during this ;

as shown by the evaporating tank.
Assuming that the evaporation from j
the water free surface in the tank na
equal to the amount evaporated from ,
the ground, plus the amount used by ',
the crops, we can have some idea ot
the amount of water actually requit
