We carried out a field experiment with a well-developed sorghum crop to validate a water use and uptake model. The calculated evapotranspiration over a 50-d period was not significantly different from the experimental values. Soil water content profiles calculated with the model showed some systematic deviation from the measured values, possibly because the physical nature of the profile was assumed to be homogeneous. The spread of the simulated results reflects the field variation of hydraulic soil properties.-
