The present paper deals with a model developed and used at the Danish Ministry of Agriculture, Bureau of Land Data, for calculation of the amount of water needed for irrigation. The model incorporates information on soil types and their geographical distribution, soil water retention and root development in relation to soil types, and climatic conditions such as water deficits.
