This presentation introduces the Surface Energy Balance Algorithm for Land (SEBAL) as a remote-sensing model for evapotranspiration. Through SEBAL, crop production and irrigation information can be sent to farmers through the use of technology. To be able to fully utilize this model, however, would require the establishment of public-private partnerships.
