The water balance for winter wheat, barley and fallow was studied at Ultuna [Sweden] during the vegetation period of 1975 and 1976. Precipitation and soil water content were measured and the development of the crops was described. The runoff was disregarded and the evapotranspiration was obtained as a difference between precipitation and change in soil water content. Soil water was determined gravimetrically. The error in the determination of the change in soil water content was estimated.
