This summer has been an interesting one to say the least. As the fall months quickly sneak up on us, many are reflecting on the wet season that plagued some widespread regions across the US. Most of these reflections should include thoughts of improving your fields performance; what better way to accomplish this than through drainage tile?
Tiling can be an intimidating process, but it doesn’t have to be. There are many tools available to make anyone a “tile expert”. With just a few years of good data and knowledge of the fields you’ve been farming for years, you can create tile plans and install those plans yourself using the SMS Water Management module and the Intellislope tile plow control system.
The SMS Water Management module can be utilized with the SMS Advanced software. Use these tools to easily create tile designs for your fields. Create the design that works best for your fields and your budget. Know that what you design will be adequate to drain your fields and no matter your soil types.
Once your plans are designed to your expectations, take those plans and read them right into your Ag Leader Integra monitor equipped with Intellislope, to control your tile plow. Intellislope makes tiling as easy as 1,2,3. Simply plan the parameters of your run. Survey the run. Then install the run. The AutoTile feature of the Intellislope system automatically makes plow corrections as you install your tile. Making your job simple and efficient.
Tiling is an investment that most of us can’t afford to miss out on. When the time comes, make sure it’s done right the first time with Ag Leader’s suite of Water Management products.
