Power of Ditching in the Age of Precision Ag
Every farmer has “that” field. You know the one. The one you hate to drive through because of the thick mud that clings to your tractor tires. The one that makes you dread replants rather than celebrate strong emergence whenever even the slightest rain comes down. The one you know needs to be fixed, but how to do so always eludes you. Is it worth the astronomical price to tile it? Is ditching going to work or just further erode it? Will the yield saved even be worth the cost in the end?
The primary issue facing farmers with poorly drained fields is a lack of clear information. Everyone knows the frustration of massive replants and lost yields, but the price tag attached to the solutions is often significant. No one wants to throw tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars at a solution that may not pay off in the end, and for good reason. But the risks of these methods are slowly fading into the past.
