Short summary
The new tile drainage routine in the SWAT model provided more realistic and accurate simulation of tile drainage, and the new curve number retention parameter adjustment factor improved surface runoff simulation, and is suitable for surface runoff simulation in mildly sloped watersheds. This study can provide guidance for selection of tile drainage routines for tile drainage simulation, and can allow accurate simulation of hydrological systems at both field and watershed scales.
