A video series documenting this innovative agricultural drainage practice based on interviews with researchers, drainage contractors, and farmers in Michigan, Minnesota, and Missouri
Researchers from across the US Midwest explained methods used at their sites for monitoring flow in subsurface tile drains (June 22, 2017)
Increasing water storage on the landscape can provide greater water security for growing crops while reducing nutrient losses to our streams. This video shows how storing water through controlled drainage or drainage water recycling leads to more resilient agricultural systems and improved downstream water quality.
This series of videos was developed by Extension engineers at land-grant universities across the Midwest to provide instruction on drainage water management practices. The series of videos was created in collaboration with USDA – Natural Resources Conservation Service in 2014.
