Covering Mesopotamia and surrounding areas

Agricultural Update for the month of December, 3400B.C.

Agricultural Update:

My name is Will and I live in Mesopotamia between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. I live on a farm where I grow crops . I will be informing you of the recent Agricultural update provided by hammurabi the King of mesopoamia. Our new irrigation systems provided by the king seem to be holding back the flood waters from the two rivers. The new holding ditches are providing enough area to store the excess flood waters. My farm was able to get the first harvest of wheat planted and the crop yield should be plentiful. When the time of drought does happen and there is not enough rainwater to water the crops I am hopeful that the water containment ditches will provide the needed water to maintain our crops. My neighbor who is a scribe for the royal court says he is not sure the new irrigation systems will help the water problem.
