The key irrigation=* is used in 2 ways:

  • irrigation=pivot is used with area features tagged landuse=* to specify that a central pivot type irrigation system is used to water the area of farmland, meadow, orchard or vineyard.

See also irrigated=yes which is also used to specify that an area of landuse=* is irrigated.
