Resumen: Typical field conditions under sprinkler irrigation include low irrigation uniformity and non-uniform plant density, which can affect the crop yield and the environmental impact of irrigation. The effect of the uniformity of sprinkler irrigation and plant density on the variability of maize grain yield under semi-arid conditions was evaluated, and the relevance of the spatial variability of these two variables on the simulation of maize grain yield was tested with the DSSAT-CERES-Maize model (V 4.5). Experimental field data from three maize growing seasons (2006, 2009 and 2010) with nighttime or daytime sprinkler irrigation were used to test the model performance. Yield, irrigation depths and plant density distribution were measured in 18 m × 18 m plots divided in 25 sub-plots. Regression analysis showed that the variability of plant density and seasonal irrigation depth (due to irrigation non-uniformity) was able to explain from 28 to 77% of the variability in maize grain yield for the experiments with a relatively high coefficient of uniformity (CU) (73–84%) and high plant density (more than 74,844 plants ha−1). Taking into account irrigation depth distribution improved maize yield simulations compared to simulations with the average irrigation water applied. The root mean square error (RMSE) decreased from 637 to 328 kg ha−1. Maize yield was over-predicted by 3% when irrigation depth distribution was not considered. Including plant density distribution in the simulations did not improve maize yield simulations. The simulated decrease in maize yield with decreasing CU of irrigation from 100 to 70% varied from year to year and caused reductions in yield ranging from 0.75 to 2.5 Mg ha−1. The ability of the model to simulate CU effects on maize yield is shown.
