What a difference a year makes!
March 14, 2012
Tiling is effective, even if we have a dryer than normal spring, like meteorologists have predicted for this year. Why? Because managing the water table will force crops to grow a deeper, healthier root system. Those deep roots will make plants heartier, more productive and better able to reach water during a dry growing season.
The real message is, no matter what the season or what the weather, installing a drainage system to manage the water table is one of the most effective, long term strategies a farmer can implement to improve yields and creating efficiencies. That’s a proven fact.
Spring or fall, wet or dry, strategic water management is always a good idea!
