What is Irrigation Canal, Construction of Irrigation Canal [IN PICTURES]

As we already know that by definition irrigation is an activity in which we provide water to the land or soil. The basic purpose of applying water to the soil is to grow agricultural crops or maintain a landscape. It  is necessary in areas where the natural rainfall is not sufficient to suffice the basic needs of crops. Irrigation is done by various methods, of course we will not consider them in this post but most important of all the structures in irrigation is a canal. 

An irrigation canal is a waterway, often man-made or enhanced, built for the purpose of carrying water from a source such as a lake, river, or stream, to soil used for farming or landscaping.

It can be dug into the ground and then filled with water, or an existing stream can be widened in a process called “canalization,” and diverted as appropriate to provide maximum efficiency.

One of the difficulties with irrigation canals is providing a reliable flow of water.

Here are some of the pictures that will help you in understanding what really the irrigation canal is;
