The SWAP93 model was used to predict how much capillary rise would occur in cropped fields. The experimental fields were located in a humid climate and it was thought that contribution from groundwater sources to total water use could be significant. In one field planted with soybean, the model predicted an average daily uptake of 1.3 mm; in another field planted with pumpkin, there was average daily uptake of 0.3 mm; and yet in a third field located in a vinyl house there was average daily uptake of 0.03 mm. These predictions represent about 38,7 and 1% contribution to total water use respectively. Even though there were no measured data to compare with, the results lie within the range of other works reported in the literature.
