FAO AQUACROP – A crop water productivity model

FAO AquaCrop

AquaCrop is a crop water productivity model developed by the Land and Water Division of FAO.

It simulates yield response to water of herbaceous crops, and is particularly suited to address conditions where water is a key limiting factor in crop production.

AquaCrop attempts to balance accuracy, simplicity, and robustness. It uses a relatively small number of explicit and mostly-intuitive parameters and input variables requiring simple methods for their determination.
