OVERCOME THE CHALLENGES OF GROWING IN THE MUCK
Due to landscape position, flooding can be a common occurrence in muck soils. Additionally, high levels of SOM increase the water holding capacity of these soils prolonging the period the soil can be saturated.
Installing ditches and tile drainage systems are necessary to grow crops in muck soils. It allows oxygen to replace water within the soil. This activates aerobic soil microbes to accelerate decomposition of the SOM at a much more rapid pace. Muck soil’s low density and natural porosity further help to increase oxygen penetration of the soil when drained, advancing microbe decomposition rates even more.
OUR FULL STACK OF CAPABILITIES ENSURE YOU CAN MAXIMIZE YOUR FIELDS GROWTH POTENTIAL
We use GPS based software and equipment for our farm drainage services to enable a concept to completion tool set that streamlines the survey, analysis, design, installation, and mapping steps of surface and subsurface drainage.
This solution ensures optimal 3D drain placement, which improves your crop yields by controlling ponding, optimizing root depth, maximizing planting seasons, and minimizing nutrient loss.
GPS TOPOGRAPHIC MAPPING
Alleghany Farm Drainage uses topography data from your land to evaluate the water flow direction and decide where surface ditches or subsurface tile lines should be installed to optimally drain the field. We utilize software that allows us to accurately draw a vertical profile over a single field or over an entire property.
This vertical profile gives us the information needed to determine the materials required that will best suit your field. Accuracy like this is a big factor in developing long-term profitability and reducing risk and yield variability for growers.
