Drainage

Waterlogged, agricultural land contributes to a major problem that often can be felt in a farmer’s pocket – especially in areas near pivot points, rivers and streams and can cause soil salinization (salt saturation).

The sole purpose of drainage is to lower the subsurface water table so that oxygen can get into the ground to get the crops to produce better.

We use two types of draining methods depending on the soil status.

In clay soil we use the conventional way of opening up the ground with an excavator and using laser equipment for the sloping.

For sandy soils we use the Soil-Max implement. The implement gets lowered into the ground to a specific depth, predetermined by calibrated GPS equipment. The GPS system that matches your required slope for your crop or vineyard that is accurate up to 2cm. The drainage pipe gets fed into a trench at the back of the implement until it reaches the cascade point where the pipe is secured and the operator can continue laying the pipe.

We have refined both processes so that it is very fluent and effective. Saving our client time and money.

If you have waterlogged areas, this is our solution to you, to get your soil back to a healthy state.
