AbstractConsumptive use (CU) values were estimated for transplanted bell and Cubanelle peppers having a 120-day growing cycle with 24 planting dates and 2 locations (Fortuna Substation, Juana Díaz and Isabela Substation, Isabela). Modified Blaney-Criddle model was used to estimate monthly consumptive use (CU) with temperature and rainfall data. CU at Fortuna was greater than CU at Isabela in all planting: schedules. CU varied from 401 to 524 mm at Fortuna and 365 to 484 mm at Isabela. An example is presented to estimate seasonal net irrigation requirements (NIR) with CU.
