AquaCrop is the crop growth model developed by FAO to address food security and assess the effect of the environment and management on crop production. AquaCrop simulates the yield response of herbaceous crops to water and is particularly well suited to conditions in which water is a key limiting factor in crop production.

The new AquaCrop website is now available at www.fao.org/aquacrop, allowing for easier and quicker access to all the information you need to know about AquaCrop, including publications, reference manuals, training handbooks and a series of 43 tutorials to learn how to use AquaCrop. You can also download the latest version 6.0 of AquaCrop and consult the workshops taking place around the world.
