Controlled Drainage


Providing customized drainage systems designed to your exact needs, so you can get the most out of your land.

Controlled Drainage is the preferred solution for growers who want to reduce nitrate runoff and improve soil quality, while retaining drainage water. And you can count on a unique combination of expertise and next-gen technology to deliver solutions you can count on. Controlled Drainage is most applicable on topography with less than 0.5% slope and in geographic regions that regularly experience extended dry periods or irregular precipitation patterns. A Controlled Drainage system incorporates strategically placed structures throughout the topography to allow the grower to manage the water table level and provide stored drainage water to crops during dry periods.
