Have you considered having ag drainage tile installed in your fields?
We at Gravel Grading and Excavating are excited about spring too. We want to help you get into the fields faster, boost yields, and ease the stress of ridiculous Iowa weather. Our ag tile installation allows us to assist in all of these areas.
We’re happy to meet with you and design a strategy that best meets your needs. Tile can be arranged in patterns or just spots in your fields and pastures to give you more dependable, consistent yields by controlling water across your crops.
Ag tile prevents standing water in your fields which has several benefits. First, you will have easier and earlier field access, even in wet springs. When we get a wet fall, the tile will still be at work, spreading water more evenly and eliminating a muddy mess.
When plants are spoiled with a wet spring, their roots don’t have to work as hard to reach water. Then, in the summer, a shallow root system means they can suffer in dry, hot weather. Keeping crops out of standing water in the spring will give them deeper root systems.
Disease travels quickly among plants with “wet feet.” Ag tile can prevent plant disease, especially fungi that love a wet environment.
All of these benefits will boost yields as you farm in the future, and boost the value of your property when you are ready sell. Get in touch with our Gravel Grading & Excavating crew this spring as you consider agricultural drainage tile or our other farm services.
