AquaCrop uses a relative small number of explicit parameters and largely intuitive input variables that are either widely available or can be determined using simple methods. Inputs consist of weather data, crop and soil characteristics, and management practices that define the environment in which the crop will develop. Soil characteristics are divided into soil profile and groundwater characteristics, and management practices are categorized as field management or irrigation management practices (see figure).
