The expansion of greenhouse cultivation all over the world had lead to the need for reliable crop evapotranspiration (ETc) estimation to encounter better yield and crop quality, water scarcity and environmental aspects. There are various methods available to determine the rate of evapotranspiration (ET) in greenhouses. These methods calculate for the total amount of water lost through transpiration and evaporation. In a greenhouse environment, protected crop ET is influenced by the energy balance of the whole system in a greenhouse and depends strongly on the greenhouse characteristics and on the climate control equipment. For different type of greenhouses, from high technology as such closed and controlled greenhouses to traditional plastic rain shelter greenhouses will require a reliable method to determine ET. There are a lot of studies been done for the development of ET models and comparisons on what models best suit the protected crops and different types of greenhouses. In this literature study, different kind of ET models which are widely used in both practical and research areas are gathered and a distinction is made for the types of greenhouse, crops and greenhouse climate data.
