Main Purpose and Description

Takes rainwater runoff from gullies, grasslands or hard surfaces (such as paths or roads) to a cropped area or to a storage tank. This increases the water available to the plants. Used for fieldcrops and in gardens. The water is diverted (channelled) directly to soils and crops. Additional water can be stored in underground tanks for later watering.
