Abstract

Water-avaibility is an important and often critical factor for plant-production in the Sahel. The most important crop of this region is millet, which has a low water requirement and a high resistance to drought. In this article attention is drawn to the importance of properly understanding the water balance in the Sahel, and the relationship between biomass production and transpiration is discussed. A method for estimating transpiration from a heterogeneous vegetation cover is tested
