Short summary
Irrigation can affect the weather by making the air cooler and more humid, potentially causing changes to clouds and rainfall. This study uses new datasets to test how well irrigation is simulated in a model. We find the model applies more water than farmers' data show, but the water is applied at the right time in the growing season and improves the modeled wetness of the soil. These results will help improve irrigation modeling and thus understanding of human impacts on the water cycle.
