Abstract
The two previous summaries of the interim results from the Mbeya experiment (Pereira ct al., 1962; Da3g and Blackie, 1965) contain Systematic errors in the stream flow records from the cultivated catchment (A) due to an erroneous transposition of stage-discharge Tables at an early stage of data analysis. The resulting overestimation of flow in Catchment A led to an exaggeration of the difference in Water use between it and the forested control catchment (C). This anomaly stimulated an extensive check of the experimental data which Led to major corrections to stream flow and evaporation values.
