The key irrigated=* is added to an area, usually landuse=farmland, to specify that it is irrigated land. To irrigate is to water plants by bringing in water from pipes, canals, sprinklers, or other man-made means, rather than relying on rainfall alone.
- irrigated=yes is used when the feature is irrigated.
- irrigated=no can be used with an area which is not irrigated, when this would usually be expected (for example, an area used to grown dryland rice instead of a flooded rice paddy).
