Abstract
Data relative to two soybean seasons, several irrigation scheduling treatments, including moderate and severe deficit irrigation, and rain-fed cropping were used to parameterize and assess the performance of models AquaCrop and SIMDualKc, the latter combined with the Stewart’s yield model. SIMDualKc applies the FAO56 dual crop coefficient approach for computing and partitioning evapotranspiration (ET) into actual crop transpiration (Tc act) and soil evaporation (Es), while AquaCrop uses an approach that depends on the canopy cover curve. The calibration-validations of models were performed by comparing observed and predicted soil water content (SWC) and grain yield. SIMDualKc showed good accuracy for SWC estimations, with normalized root mean square error (NRMSE) ≤ 7.6%. AquaCrop was less accurate, with NRMSE ≤ 9.2%. Differences between models regarding the water balance terms were notable, and the ET partition revealed a trend for under-estimation of Tc act by AquaCrop, mainly under severe water stress. Yield predictions with SIMDualKc-Stewart models produced NRMSE < 15% while predictions with AquaCrop resulted in NRMSE ≤ 23% due to under-estimation of Tc act, particularly for water stressed treatments. Results show the appropriateness of SIMDualKc to support irrigation scheduling and assessing impacts on yield when combined with Stewart’s model.

Aiming at improved knowledge on water use, productivity and irrigation scheduling of processing pea, the soil water balance model SIMDualKc was calibrated and validated using field data observed in two farmers’ fields in a wet and a dry year. The model uses the dual crop coefficient approach for partitioning crop evapotranspiration into crop transpiration and soil evaporation. Calibration was performed by minimizing differences between measured and simulated soil water content with a root mean s...

Crop simulation models are valuable tools for quantifying crop yield response to water, and for devising strategies to improve agricultural water management. However, applicability of the majority of crop models is limited greatly by a failure to provide open-access to model source code. In this study, we present an open-source version of the FAO AquaCrop model, which simulates efficiently water-limited crop production across diverse environmental and agronomic conditions. Our model, called Aqua...

Abstract SoySim is a dynamic process-based model for soybean that requires fewer genotype-specific parameters compared to other soybean models such as the CROPGRO-Soybean model. The SoySim model was originally developed and evaluated using cultivars with maturity group (MG) ratings from 0.8 to 4.2 in temperate climate and mid latitudes. The objective of this study was to evaluate the SoySim model for simulating growth, development and yield of soybean cultivars with MG greater than 4.2 grown in ...

The AquaCrop model was parameterized and evaluated using data relative to supplemental irrigated vining pea for industry using observations in farmers’ fields located in the Ribatejo region, Portugal. Data refers to field observations relative to leaf area index (LAI), soil water content, biomass and final yield relative to two contrasting rainfall years, 2011 and 2012, a wet and a dry year, respectively. LAI data were used to parameterize the canopy cover (CC, %) curve. Results showed that afte...

Abstract Crop simulation models can help scientists, government agencies and growers to evaluate the best strategies to manage their crops in the field, according to the climate conditions. Currently, there are many crop models available to simulate soybean growth, development, and yield, with different levels of complexity and performance. Based on that, the aim of this study was to assess five soybean crop models and their ensemble in Southern Brazil. The following crop models were assessed: F...

Various maize irrigation treatments including full and deficit irrigation were used to calibrate and validate the soil water balance and irrigation scheduling model SIMDualKc at Paysandu, western Uruguay. The model adopts the dual crop coefficient approach to partition actual evapotranspiration (ETc act) into actual transpiration (Tc act) and soil evaporation (Es). Low errors of estimation were obtained for simulating soil water content (Root mean square errors (RMSE) ≤ 0.014 cm3·cm−3 with calib...

In arid and semi-arid countries, the use of irrigation is essential to ensure agricultural production. Irrigation water use is expected to increase in the near future due to several factors such as the growing demand of food and biofuel under a probable climate change scenario. For this reason, the improvement of irrigation water use efficiency has been one of the main drivers of the upgrading process of irrigation systems in countries like Spain, where irrigation water use is around 70 % of its...

An accurate estimation of crop evapotranspiration (ETc) in greenhouses is critical for precise water resource management and effective irrigation scheduling. In this study, the SIMDualKc model was calibrated and validated with the data from a four-season experiment to estimate the ETc of hot pepper grown in a greenhouse located in Northwest China. Various indicators have shown good agreement between the simulated ETc through SIMDualKc model and observed throughout the seasons with regression coe...

Two contrasting rainfall barley seasons, dry (2012) and wet (2013), were used to parameterize and assess the performance of the SIMDualKc and AquaCrop models. Field data were obtained from malt barley cropped in a farmer’s field in Ribatejo, Portugal. SIMDualKc applies the dual crop coefficient approach for computing and partitioning crop evapotranspiration (ET), while AquaCrop uses an empirical approach to estimate potential crop transpiration (Tc) and soil evaporation (Es) depending upon the c...

Abstract Irrigation is an intensification technology to increase productivity in agricultural systems, but the impacts of irrigation on the environmental performance of crops are not well understood. We evaluated impacts on water use and quality of rainfed and irrigated systems for corn and soybean production in temperate South America using nonparametric ANOVA tests for small sample sizes. We modeled blue water footprint, ecotoxicity, N and P balance, and eutrophication potential for six farms ...

Abstract In temperate climatic regions, agricultural production depends on precipitation amount and its distribution during the growing season. A 3-year field study was conducted to investigate the effects of different irrigation regimes on yield parameters and water productivity of sprinkler-irrigated soybean [ Glycine max (L.) Merr.], grown under wet, semi-dry and dry conditions in a temperate environment. Four irrigation levels were applied: full irrigation (I 100 ), 65% and 40% of full irrig...

Traditional leafy vegetables (TLVs’) are vegetables that were introduced in an area a long time ago, where they adapted to local conditions and became part of the local culture. In Sub-Saharan Africa, the use of TLVs’ as a nutrient dense alternative food source to combat micronutrient deficiency of rural resource-poor households (RRPHs), has gained attention in debates on food and nutrition security. However, TLVs’ are underutilised because of lack of information on their yield response to water...

Abstract Understanding better the impacts of extreme dry spell regimes is essential for optimizing water management under a changing and variable climate. Using field experiments and modeling studies, we examined the impacts of dry spells in soybean and identified better management of water resources under varying water-scarce conditions. Field experimental data from soybean (PUSA-2614) experiments (July–Oct 2014; IARI, New Delhi, India) were used to calibrate and validate InfoCrop-Soybean model...

Thailand has recently introduced agricultural policies to promote large-scale rice farming through supporting and integrating small-scale farmers. However, achieving these policies requires agricultural tools that can assist farmers in rice farming planning and management. Crop models, along with remote sensing technologies, can be useful for farmers and field managers in this regard. In this study, we used the AquaCrop model along with moderate-resolution satellite images (30 m) to simulate the...

Abstract Two years of experimental field data on potato (var. Spunta) were used to calibrate and validate the SIMDualKc model. This model adopts the FAO dual K c approach that provides the partition of crop evapotranspiration into crop transpiration and soil evaporation. Results of model calibration show a good agreement between soil water observations and predictions, with low errors of estimate – RMSE 0.87). The calibrated basal crop coefficients for the initial stage, mid-season and end of se...
