what is mean by irrigation? Answered



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.

You'll maybe find having a dictionary useful (there are plenty on the internet).
I've got paper one from before the internet...
Or use wikipedia


Traditionally it means to flood something with large quantities of water, although I've heard it used in reference to other liquids, so I'd have to qualify that with "to flood with large quantities of a liguid"

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).
