At Agri Drainage, we follow an holistic approach to drainage. We analyse your field as a whole and can offer a complete solution from land shaping (to prevent ponding), contour and waterway building (to assist surface drainage) land leveling (for effective water utilization) all the way to sub-surface drainage to prevent water logging, water table management to optimise the use of rainfall and sub-surface irrigation as a complete solution for water management on your farm.
The first step in our process is to identify your problems and learn your goals. For us it is important to do an in-depth on-site analysis to be able create a complete water management solution. After we have surveyed and analysed your field, we will then determine which combination will best suit your situation (requirements). Following this we will be able to propose a balanced solution which can be implemented individually, or in phases with the end-goal in mind.
The basic shaping of land, not to grade but only to minimum grade for the least amount of soil movement. To prevent ponding and to assist with run-off of surface water.
CONTOUR & WATERWAY BUILDING
The construction of contours and waterways to prevent soil erosion.
The leveling of land to a set grade to maximise water infiltration while preventing ponding and assist surface drainage.
Sub-surface drainage is the practice of placing perforated pipe at a specified grade (slope) at some depth below the soil surface to prevent water logging.
WATER TABLE MANAGEMENT
This is achieved by adding control structures to sub-surface drainage that allows for the management of the water table to optimise the use of rainfall.
By adding control structures to sub-surface drainage and providing for the feedback of water into the system. This provides a complete solution for water management
on your farm.
