Evaporation PrecipitationandIrrigationQuantity: The monthly evaporation and precipitation values measured in the experiment areausing a Class A pan and a standard pluviometer respectivelyare shown in Figure 1.Total Class A pan evaporation and precipitation values during the growing period (12 June-18 September) of cucumber were 688 mm and 41 mm respectively.The highest evaporation values were measured in August (Figure 1).
A pluviometer and a maximum and minimum thermometer installed close to the experimental area were used for the collection of the data for rainfall and temperature (Table 1), during the experimental period.
Daily weather data were obtained with a thermohygrometer and a pluviometer installed located 10 meters from the experimental site in the experiment area, which provided daily readings of temperature, relative humidity, and rainfall.
A rain gauge (also known as a udometer or a pluviometer or a cup) is a type of instrument used by meteorologists and hydrologists to gather and measure the amount of liquid precipitation over a set period.

Precipitation was collected in a pluviometer. Wind velocity was measured at the base camp with a handheld anemometer (Simerl, model K/K, Nurnberg, Germany) at 1.5 m above ground.
The daily evaporation in the tank ([E.sub.20]) results from the difference between subsequent readings corrected with the rainfall measured with a Ville de Paris pluviometer. Failures occurred in 16% of the days, due to the overflow of the tank.
