Flooding happens when heavy rain falls and the ground is unable to drain the water fast enough. Most plants can withstand flooding which doesn’t last for long (unless it is a severe torrential flood which washes away everything in its path), but prolonged flooding can cause great damage to crops. In many areas, floods are happening more often, or with greater severity. It is important that crops are protected from flooding, particularly in areas which are vulnerable to flooding.
