Validation Summary: 
General Comments:SWAT_m is identified as the version of SWAT used in this study that featured the modified auto-irrigation routine used in this study. The authors also used variants of the standard SWAT name in their discussion as follows: (1) uncalibrated SWAT (SWAT_UC), (2) irrigation amount simulated by SWAT under plant water stress auto-irrigation setting (SWAT_p), and (3) irrigation amounts simulated by original (SWAT_s) and modified SWAT (SWAT_s_m) under soil water deficit auto-irrigation setting. These additional "SWAT variants" were used simply identify certain outputs or application phases and thus were not modified versions of SWAT (except for SWAT_s_m which is the same model as SWAT_m).
