Surface Water Management

Reduce waterlogging and improve your potential yield

Waterlogging can have a severe yield impact, in our experience costing farmers up to $1,200 per hectare in lost production. Wetter seasons are often the years when yield potential is high so it is important to try and maximise average yield at these times.

The good news is that waterlogging is usually predictable and with Precision Agriculture, we can help you increase potential yield in these areas. 

Key to this is building a detailed picture of elevation across your farm as this identifies areas at risk of waterlogging and erosion, as well as drainage restrictions, which are all often related to soil type. By setting up strategic drains we can help you remove excess water and improve the productive capacity of your soil.

    Our Surface Water Management service includes:
  • Collection of elevation data, or alternatively we can use your existing 2cm autosteer data (if sufficient);
  • Digital elevation model and contour maps;
  • Development of a surface water management plan with strategic drainage lines; and
  • Physical marking out of drains or feature lines for GPS display.
