Abstract

•Both the Hydrus-1D and water balance models gave comparable results of actual ET and deep percolation in tropical floodplain soils.•The deep percolation was the dominant process of the hydrological cycle during irrigation season.•There was over irrigation in all crops during early stages and stress in maize crops in the late period due to absence of irrigation water.•The water balance model can be an alternative to numerical models in data scare regions to support irrigation water management.
