Tile Line Mapping
Ever increasing competition for land has led to higher and higher prices, so many farms are choosing to make the most of the land they do have. ACS can help map your fields in preparation for tile drainage, or map the tile lines after they have been installed.
There are significant benefits of tile drainage including:
- earlier and later access to fields
- deeper root systems leading to reduced sensitivity to extreme wet or dry conditions
- reduction in overland flow which leads to a loss of soil and soil nutrients.
- increased crop yield
- improved forage quality
If you do consider this option, remember to be mindfull of areas designated as wetlands and consult with your local NRCS office.
