Tile Drainage School

March 8, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 8:00 am, repeating until March 16, 2021


Wetter weather patterns and fieldwork challenges have led many producers to consider purchasing their own tile plow or adding to their existing drainage system.  Knowing how to properly design, lay out and install a system prevents costly mistakes.  Extension in Wisconsin, Illinois and Iowa are partnering to host a 4-day virtual Tile Drainage School, 8AM – 12PM CT on March 8, 9, 11 and 16 for producers and tile contractors.

In this introductory-level course, drainage experts from all three University Extensions will walk participants through assessing the field prior to installation, choosing the best lateral spacing, slope and outfall considerations, finding old tile systems and outlets/lift stations.  Agency experts will discuss the steps to avoid regulatory pitfalls, and participants will be able to lay out a system and receive feedback on their approach.

The cost is $50 for the first person from a farm/tile installation business, and $25 for each additional person.
