This paper offers a historical retrospective on the remote sensing of crop coefficients for obtaining actual crop evapotranspiration. We present the canopy reflectance-based approach of crop coefficients and show the usefulness of high-resolution airborne imagery as a tool for monitoring the actual crop growth changes and characterizing in-field variability in an objective manner.
