Crop models evaluationin agriculture has been done by researchers. It helps them to determine the most appropriate crop model for the planning and simulation of crop response in different areas. Using can lead time and cost saving, helping to evaluate the effects of different situations on the crops yield, biomass and water use efficiency (WUE). Given the importance of the subject, this study was conducted for the accuracy and efficiency evaluation of AqauCrop and SWAP under three irrigation types (D: sprinkler irrigation with saline water, F: sprinkler irrigation with saline and fresh water, and S: surface irrigation) and five water qualities (S1: 2.5, S2: 3.2, S3: 3.9, S4: 4.6 and S5: 5.1 dS.m-1). NRMSE results showed that the accuracy of AquaCrop for the simulation of yield, biomass and WUE was 0.07, 0.09 and 0.07, respectively. For SWAP, these were 0.12, 0.04 and 0.13, respectively. According to EF, AquaCrop results for above-mentioned parameters were 0.60, 0.90 and -4.4, and SWAP results were 0.74, 0.73 and -2.0, respectively. So, AquaCrop accuracy and efficiency were better than those of SWAP for the simulation of corn yield and biomass.
