Are you loosing crop production due to drainage issues?
Farm drainage affects crop yields and thus impacts field profits. It is easy to see that water causes damage in poorly drained fields. But have you ever measured the losses? Using yield maps and imagery the acres and yield lost can be easily checked. It is surprising at how quickly fixing poor field drainage will pay off.
Poor surface and subsurface drainage leads to wasted seed, fertilizer and other inputs. Sometimes, more inputs like fertilizer are applied to try and keep yields high. This band-aid approach results in higher costs and increases risk. Our Farm Drainage Solutions aim to fix the problem instead of putting a band-aid on the symptom.
Improving farm drainage results in increased crop yield potential and a reduced risk of soil erosion. So, use the best methods to move the least amount of soil and leave a legacy for future generations. Start with a farm topographic survey, design a farm drainage solution that works, then choose to either execute the plan yourself or connect with qualified experts.
Crop Quest and partners offer turnkey farm drainage solutions for lasting results that improve your farms bottom line.
