The diagrams below show two methods of collecting water for irrigation purposes. Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
The presented diagrams illustrate how to collect water for irrigating farmland by two different ways. These methods take the water from ground but the first one needs labour intensive while another method is done by animal.\
Firstly, method named swing basket is used to collect water from 1- 2 metres depth under the ground. It consists of a basket made of bamboo or leather and tied ropes. This method is very simple because it only needs two persons who lift the basket contained water up to the hill and swing it to the irrigation channels.
Other method is rope and bucket. It is designed with pulley system in order to collect water from 50 metres depth under the ground. Furthermore, this method use a bucket connected to the system and a cow that pull the bucket downhill. Then, water will pour the irrigation channels and flow to the farmland.
In conclusion, those methods are really useful technique to accommodate water supplies to the farmland. It use different kind of power source to collect water from different depth of water under ground.
