Drought Tip: Fog Contribution to Crop Water Use

  • Author(s): Snyder, Richard L
  • et al.
Abstract

As fog passes through a crop, some of the water is intercepted by and coats the plant, much like light rainfall. In fact, the fog contribution to crop water use should be considered effective rainfall. In some regions, fog interception by crops can be appreciable and should be taken into account in determining how much irrigation water is needed for a crop.
