Tiling Field Day Demonstration Set for November 19th

The use of laser leveled tile in areas that need drainage has increased in northwest Missouri.

On Monday, November 19, there will be a tiling demonstration starting at 1PM and concluding at 3PM. The field day will be held on Highway 159 in Holt County east of Big Lake approximately 4 miles. In case of rain, the meeting will be moved to the following Monday, November 26th at the same time. Dr. Kelly Nelson, University of Missouri Researcher, will provide research data on how tile can be used in a drainage and irrigation methods. Also, the contractor will be on-site installing the tile and tile is donated by a local vendor. During the installation process, there will be two sets of drainage spacing in two different soil types providing long-term yield data.
