If these don't seem to answer your question, tell us in what context you encountered the word. It might be being used as jargon rather than its normal meanings, but we can't tell from your question.

I've got paper one from before the internet...
Or use wikipedia

Two meanings:

1. Taking water to crops, typically through trenches or artificial watercourses.

2. Washing something with lots of water to prevent damage (such as washing chemicals from the eyes).
