One of the first widely used irrigation systems for watering from the Ogallala Aquifer in the 1960's and 70's was "flood" or "furrow" irrigation. Typically fields were bedded with 40" raised beds and water was flooded down the bottom of the furrows between beds to fill the soil profile for use by the crop.

This practice, while more practical in certain situations is still in use, however is one of the most inefficient water delivery systems with high evaporation rates and requires much closer monitoring and labor to irrigate a field crop.
