Managing Water On Matt’s Worst Field — The Trial Continues
11 Jul 2328 min 30 sec

The folks at ADS came to Matt Miles with a proposal: Give us your worst field and let us put in drainage tile accompanied by technology to use the tile for subsurface irrigation.  Now in its second year, Matt discusses what he’s seeing, what excites him, and what he’s experiencing in this 35 acre trial. Among the takeaways: He planted the field earlier than he’s ever been able to before. He’s seeing a huge improvement in soybean root penetration. And he’s using about one-third the amount of irrigation water to get bigger yields — a win for his wallet and his environmental impact. The future of production Agriculture will be increasingly impacted by how we manage our water— listen to this for some great insights!
