General Information Edit

Irrigation ditches act much like Roads, except that instead of carrying people, they carry water. In floodplains, irrigation ditches simply need to be connected from the water source in order to fill with water. On dry land, however, a Water Lift is required to fill them. Irrigation ditches can run under roads (although only perpendicularly), and benefit any farm within two tiles of them.

Irrigation ditches connected to a water source boost floodplain farm fertility by up to 20%, and meadow farms by up to 40%. This is a sizable boost that makes even the least fertile of farms viable for significant food production. Farm fertility cannot be higher than 99%.
