Validation Summary: 
General Comments:SWAT (within HUMUS) predicted water yields are reported for major corn, soybean, and winter wheat production areas, in response to different climate scenarios. The effects of climate change on irrigation, and irrigation versus dryland crop production, is reported. The total amount of irrigation water was found to decline in response to all of the scenarios; corn and soybean production was predicted to increase while winter wheat production was predicted to decline? The reported irrigation demand results were based on EPIC simulations.
