Hello, I am new to WEAP. Can we just vary the agricultural demand by giving monthly variations to water used for irrigation or can we assign variations to crop by crop.?
Like Is WEAP crop specific or as a whole we give water required for irrigation?

Dear Aashi,

You can do either, and there are variety of methods for doing it. I would recommend reviewing the exercises in the WEAP tutorial (www.WEAP21.org/tutorial), especially "WEAP in One Hour" and "Hydrology." Additionally, I would read about the MABIA method in the help menu.
