DRIP-LINE FAXLETTER A fax newsletter from the Southwest Michigan Research and Extension Center 2004 Vol. 1 No. 1 Welcome to DRIP-LINE. This one-page newsletter will be faxed as part of the weekly reporting of the monitoring stations in your plantings. Each week it will include predicted evapotranspiration values used to estimate water needs for the coming week. It will also include brief articles to help you make irrigation management decisions to aid in efficient water application. If you have any questions concerning content or have a specific item you would like addressed, please contact Ron Goldy at 269-944-1477 ext207, 269-208-1651 (mobile) or email@example.com. Estimated evapotranspiration values for June 22 to June 29. High temperatures over the next week are only expected to be in the low to mid 70s with partly cloudy conditions. This is five to ten degrees below normal which leads to evapotranspiration rates of 0.2 to 0.22. If temperatures or sun conditions differ from the predicted, make adjustments up or down accordingly.
