A hydrologic model was developed and evaluated using experimental data from two irrigation tests. First, the model was calibrated using the experimental data of one irrigation test, after-that the second irrigation test was predicted with it. Finally, the model was tested to prove its capacity to choose the best irrigation time and discharge combination to apply the irrigation water depth along the border uniformly.
