Water Management on Your Land

APRIL 2017

IN THIS EDITION WE SHARE CASE STUDIES Of SEVERE WATER DAMAGE TO LAND. 

CASE STUDY 1: IDENTIFYING THE PROBLEM

Water management on fields is essential. The image to the right is a good example of a field In need of Subsurface drainage. As you can see, the water is dammed up beside the field and not in it, thus showing a subsurface drainage problem on the light areas. After subsurface drainage installa­tion, a tremendous gain in yield will occur.

CASE STUDY 2: IDENTIFYING THE PROBLEM

The image to the right is a good example of a field in need of land forming. We are able to identify surface drainage as the problem because we can see the water has flooded the field at the lowest point. Entire farms/field clusters can be land formed and the water flow planned to prevent excess water from damming up in the lands.
