Soil water availability is an important factor in determinig crop growth and yield. In fields, such as drylands, where there is not a drastic change in soil water availability, crops get acclimated to the available soil water. In this study, eddy covariance measuremnts are used to measure the actual crop evapotranspiration and the level of acclimatization to the available soil water.
