Farm tile drainage topic

The economics of grain production has created a greater interest among growers to consider installing additional drain tile on agricultural lands. While the practice of installing drain tile has come a long way since instillation by hand of hardened clay tiles, the science of tiling continues to evolve today utilizing new technologies.

A seminar on “Tile Drainage on Agricultural Lands,” sponsored by the University of Wisconsin-Extension, will be held Wednesday, Aug. 22, at Sunrise Acres, N2560 Mill Rd., Waldo, from 6 to 9 p.m. The cost is $5.

The seminar will cover a wide spectrum of drainage subjects from instillation principles to understanding drain tile water outflow and strategies for improving drain tile water quality. Subjects will include engineering principals of sub-surface drainage systems, the permitting & approval process for field drainage and wetland projects, research results on drain tile water quality, and BMPs that help protect the quality of drain tile water quality.

Presenters include: John Panuska - UW biological systems engineer, Amanda Mink - DNR, Mike Patin – NRCS – Sheboygan, Ozaukee and Washington counties, and Mike Ballweg - UW-Extension Sheboygan County.
