Improvements can only be placed on plots with no bamboo. There can only be 1 improvement on a plot and once placed cannot be changed. To place an improvement as soon as the plot is placed, pick the improvement first.

Irrigation channels must be between two plots. When a plot is irrigated for the first time it grows bamboo.
