The Washington State University Tree Fruit Research and Extension Center provides a calculator for estimating water use by plants or pET (potential evapotranspiration). Water use varies widely from plant to plant, so estimates are usually first derived for a single situation, such as grass, and then adapted for other plants. The calculator uses the Penman method to estimate daily pET in inches of ... Full description.

This experiment will help students to understand the role of plants in filtering the water moving through a watershed. Students will discover that soil and plants have something of a dual role in this process and, depending on whether materials are dissolved or suspended in the water, soils and plant roots can remove some or all of this material as the water moves down through soil. They also learn ... Full description.

In this activity students work as a team to determine the effect salt has on plant germination. They then use their lab data to create a report on how the increasing salt concentrations affected the germination of the seeds and at what salt concentration no seeds will germinate. Students will discover that salt buildup is an existing or potential hazard on almost all of the 42 million acres of irrigated ... Full description.
