Crop models that estimate crop productivity in response to soil water offer potential for on-farm irrigation management. Useful models must produce accurate estimates of the soil water balance with minimal computation time. In this paper, soil water balance components of simulation models of different levels of complexity are briefly described. Applications of crop models for irrigation management are discussed.
