History Edit

Ancient gatherers and farmers understood through observation the relationship between the sun, water, and crops. Enterprising cultures learned to control the availability of water by irrigation. Canals brought water often great distances to fertile lands otherwise too dry for agriculture. Irrigation was critical to food production, population growth, and economic power in many regions where civilization first took hold on earth, including the Fertile Crescent, Egypt, and China.
