Crop data outside US

I would like to test WRF Noah-MP crop model in Israel. But after running geogrid, I found that all the crop-related variables are filled with missing values (as defined in GEOGRID.TBL.ARW.noahmp). I downloaded the optional static fields (crop, groundwater, soilgrids) and put them in the WPS_GEOG folder. I also linked GEOGRID.TBL to GEOGRID.TBL.ARW.noahmp.

Is there no crop data outside the US?

I attach my namelist.wps file.

I am sorry that we don't have crop data outside US. The crop module itself was developed for US and we didn't test it in other regions of the world. You need to produce the required input data. We do know that people have quite a few issues when using the crop module in the places, but these issues are seldom addressed because our expert who develops this module is too busy.
