Geography. River and cultivated land

Why is it that by some rivers only the east side's for example land has been cultivated and not the west side's land. Thank you in advance

Re: Geography. River and cultivated land

In ancient egyptian and other ancient cultures west side was considered to be where the dead were buried and where demons and evil gods lurked. This tradition has held on for thousands of years thanks to the greeks and romans who adopted it. The east side of the nile was considered were crops were grown and was where most settlements were.
