Inland valleys can be good locations for irrigation, however waterlogging can make it difficult to grow vegetables. These valleys are often used for rice farming only.
This innovation makes it possible to grow vegetables in seasonally waterlogged valleys throughout the year by using a system combining features that assist in both irrigation and drainage.
