Furrow

From RitchieWiki

Definitions
Furrows and Ridges
Furrows
are small troughs dug side-by-side—they are used for the irrigation of crops. Between each pair of furrows there is a peak called a ridge. Seeds are planted on the ridge to ensure the crop grows in rows between the furrows.[1]

Furrows are used to irrigate row crops, tree crops, and crops which may become damaged if their stems are submerged in water.[2]
