Tiling Field Day

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

On Monday, November 19th, the University of Missouri Extension - Holt County, will host a tiling demonstration. University of Missouri Researcher, Doctor Kelly Nelson will provide research data on how tile can be used in drainage and irrigation methods. Agronomy Specialist at the University of Missouri Extension, Wayne Flanary, says this field day will show growers how to construct a systematic tiling system to drain river or creek bottoms, and adjust water tables by closing off tiles and using it for sub-irrigation. Flanary adds this is going to be an exciting field day, as there is a lot to be learned.
