Drainage is no longer a matter of simply removing water from a field, but Springfield Plastics President Steve Baker says a concept known as managed drainage allows producers to control when the water leaves the field and how much water leaves the field. That reduces nutrient out-flow and preserves water to be used by crops, which is a critical need especially in times of drought, according to Baker. During a recent field day sponsored by Springfield Plastics, control structures integrated into drainage systems were demonstrated. Baker explained the benefits to Brownfield Ag News.
