How does terrace farming work?
This is an example of what terrace farming looks like. In the Maya culture, terrace farming is very impactful and irrigates the crops.
Terrace farming is simple. We dig into hills and create flat steps where we can plant rows of crops.

Yes, indeed. Not only did it irrigate the crops but it also allowed for effective drainage, collected sediment from the rivers, and kept soil fertiity.
Wow, terrace farming really played a significant role in the culture of Mayans.
