Short summary
We conducted two types of validation for the simulations by MATCRO-Rice developed by Masutomi et al. (2016). The results of the validation indicate that MATCRO-Rice has a high ability to accurately and consistently simulate latent heat flux, sensible heat flux, net carbon uptake by crops, and crop yield.
