Average annual potential evapotranspiration (India) Source: see Fig. 1 Temperature Temperature has an important impact on the health and productivity of plants and livestock. The temperature of plants can differ considerably from that of the air above them. The strong interaction of these two temperatures justifies the use of the air temperature as a criterion for plant and animal production. 1 Air temperatures The air temperature shows, in general, a systematic daily fluctuation.

Can be derived in various ways. Several alternative combinations of basic data can be used. Fundamental to all methods is the net radiation. This quantity can be measured, but also calculated with the aid of data of cloud cover, air humidity and air temperature. Air temperature and air humidity as such as well as the mean wind speed are of equal importance as radiation. Not only averages but also maximum and minimum values, variability and periodicity are required. For the interpretation of these data, the most exact information about instruments, their location and the surroundings and surface vegetation is required.
