General Comments:The "Journal of Soil and Water Conservation" that this article was published in is not the same journal (with the same name; typically abbreviated JSWC) that is published by the Soil and Water Conservation Society (SWCS) in the U.S. (see https://www.jswconline.org/). The SWCS has posted articles on their website starting with JSWC volume 36 in 1981; the first JSWC issue was published in 1946 (https://www.swcs.org/static/mediacms/75th_Book__online_small_EB8351774A8B2.pdf). The first issue of this journal was published by the Soil Conservation Society of India with the title of “Journal of Soil and Water Conservation in India” with ISSN: 0022-457X. During the journey of 60 years, a new series of the journal was started in the year 1987 under the nomenclature of “Journal of Soil and Water Conservation” with same ISSN number.

Abstract:The study based on hydrological modelling of river basin in agriculture area by using Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT). This tool is basically a river basin scale model incorporating hydrological section namely catchment area, crop development, climate data store, characteristics of soil and water quality standards etc. It is escalating the working power and less spending time to keeping up the measuring station data, atmospheric changes on water and soil data globally. The study discusses the use of SWAT model and demonstrates hydrological operation in the west Banas river basin. In addition, the study also highlights the Sequential Uncertainty Fitting (SUFI-2) technique and three measurable parameters i.e. Coefficient of determination (R2), Nash-Sutcliff Effectiveness (NSE) and percent Bias (PBIAS). The study concludes that SWAT model performs accurately in calibration process and simulates hydrology within the west Banas river basin satisfactorily.
