After the Sumerian farmers created irrigation systems, a new problem that arose was the potential for soil salinization. If irrigation water was not properly managed, salt could build up in the soil, making it more difficult for crops to grow. Other issues related to irrigation included waterlogging, disease, and increased sedimentation.
