Educational Training & Tutorials
Optimizing faster, more shallow drainage effects means understanding soil biology.
Shallow Drainage & Closer Spacing
Improving infiltration & holding capacity
Shallow Drainage & Closer Spacing
- Closer lateral spacing's, runs (20’) or less
- Typical 24” or shallow as possible
- Quicker drainage to field capacity
- More reserve water in dry year
- Quicker in fields after rain
- Less compaction
- Better root development
- Lower stressed plants
- Quicker and higher organic matter
- Install perpendicular to water flow
- Using GPS allows you to install this way
- Installed around hill v/s through hill
- Maintaining uniform depth
- Intercepting side hill sips
Time Frame of Infiltration Rates
- By understanding soil biology of how it functions
- According to studies, seen up to 10" per/hr infiltration rates
- Water intercepts tile much higher rates
- Optimizing are most critical time, for sensitive plants
- Creates much quicker aerobic environment
How We Evaluate Our Potential Customers
The reason for establishing Micro Drainage Concept is after five years of evaluation on understanding how it functions beneath surface. Due to lack of understanding on combining drainage with soil biology is MICRO DRAINAGE CONCEPTS a free information center provided feedback by farmer’s, evaluate, fabricate and train by Micro Drainage Concepts team.
Evaluating golf courses has been a driving factors of understanding the time frame of quicker shallower drainage effects. There are some driving factors behind golf courses research of HOW drainage function’s. So why couldn’t we read between the lines and apply to agriculture world.
After last several years of evaluating between conventional farming to biological farming of bias on both sides due to lack of understanding on both parties. The success we have is right placement, combined with understanding soil biology, tile size is all about cost savings.
Due to understanding of infiltration rates between high tillage and depleting soil life (1/4” to 1” coefficient per 24 hr. period) v/s increasing your soil life by working on your soil biology (which have up to 10” per hr. coefficient under right conditions) which creates a quicker drainage function.
After evaluation what driving factors are for performance IS on how much rainfall per year, how intensity rainfall in most critical time and what type of crop, which determines deciding factor if we need drainage or not.
To provide Products and Services to our customer from small to large. We are categorizing in three different levels;
This level is to provide services of approximately less than 80 acres of drainage installation of your own land. Which, is not practical to buy your own equipment. To provide services, we are creating a network of committed small operators of drainage contractors across United States. When a customer’s call’s we direct to your local Micro Drainage Concepts drainage contractor, to provide our Product and Services to maximum your drainage needs.
This level is to create small “Micro Drainage Concepts” drainage contractors, install their own drainage, for up to mid-size farmers, and less than a million feet per year. We would provide adequate training for to learn our concept. Committing to yearly meetings of sharing their challenges and performances of customer feedback for to paint the future.
This level is for large farmers and drainage contractors “Micro Drainage Concepts” combine with AgReplan drainage services. This includes surface and subsurface drainage combined, which would be providing adequate tools for doing the job. This also has a yearly meeting of farmers of same mind set to come together share their challenges and performance for to paint the future.
We Strive to Develop
"Micro Drainage Concepts focus on developing individual team member's CHARACTER and competency. CHARACTER is about who we are. Competency is about what we know."
