The modeling of yield response to water is expected to play an increasingly important role in the optimization of crop water productivity (WP) in agriculture. In this study, the CropSyst model was used to simulate two local rice varieties yield response under five irrigation treatments consisting of continuous flooding irrigation and irrigation at 0, 3, 6 and 9 days after the disappearance of water from the soil surface. The experiment was conducted at Rasht region during two growing seasons of 2003 and 2004. The model was calibrated using the first year data and validation of that was done using the second year data set. The result of F test shows that there was not a significant difference between the measured and simulated yield at confidence level of 99%. The relative errors of yield estimation were obtained between -0.81 to 12.58% and -2.4 to 19.42% for Binam and Hasani cultivars in 2003, respectively. These values were 0.83 to 16.4% and -2.82 to 21.27% in 2004, respectively. The results showed that due to the CropSyst model ability in simulating yield of rice under different irrigation regimes, this model can be used to explore management optimum options to improve rice water productivity
