The Aztec Empire 's agriculture was very developed and religion played a huge role in it. The Aztec people worshiped a God of corn and put a lot of thought into how to neatly organize their fields. Some farmers used chinampas to grow their crops while others used the terracing method. Farmers who used the chinampas method built boxes for crops in shallow lake waters and built the area inside the box up with mud and sediment to make it above the water level, then watered their plants using the lake water surrounding the box. However, the farmers who used the terrance method built walls of stone on the hillsides and made the land level.
