What size tile will you be installing? The Pull type and 3-point plows come with a 4" tile boot. The ZD48 comes with a 3" boot
Additional Options For Your Plow (select each as required)
Power feeder reduces tile stretch, particularly in hot weather. Tandem axles provide improved stability and survey accuracy on rough ground, plus a wider stance over start holes
Grade Control (select all required)
You will need a plow control system + RTK GPS to operate the plow. If you have these already you should be good. If you don't, we sell Intellislope plow control (which is designed for Soil-Max plows), and can bundle this with either Outback or Hemisphere RTK systems. If you will just be tiling with the system we suggest Outback for simplicity. If you also plan to survey with an ATV and/or survey pole then we'd suggest Hemisphere.

Some of the Benefits of Tile Drainage

  • Improved soil structure: By removing excess water, tile drainage helps to maintain optimal soil moisture levels and improve soil structure, which can result in better root growth and increased crop yields.
  • Increased production: By reducing waterlogging, tile drainage can increase the amount of land that can be used for agriculture, leading to increased crop production and profitability.
  • Enhanced soil aeration: By removing excess water, tile drainage helps to maintain a better balance of oxygen and water in the soil, which can enhance soil aeration and root respiration, leading to healthier crops.
  • Reduced soil erosion: By controlling water flow and reducing erosion, tile drainage can help to maintain the integrity of fields and protect against soil degradation.
  • Improved water management: Tile drainage can also be used to manage irrigation water more effectively, reducing the amount of water required to irrigate crops and improving water use efficiency.

Ag Leader InCommand® with Intellislope® Plow Control

InCommand displays with Intellislope® technology assist you in controlling the plow to install drainage tile on grade throughout the entire run. Perfectly drained fields are easily attainable with the right technology – at a fraction of the cost of hiring it done.

Automated grade calculations with AutoTile
AutoTile mode makes grade calculations based on the survey and target elevation and automatically adjust depth of the plow.

Flexibility to adjust as you go
If you want more control, grade control mode uses GPS instead of complicated lasers to install at desired grade. Grade settings can easily be manually adjusted as you go from the cab instead of a laser tripod. If needed, you can also use grade breaks to shallow up but keep the same grade.

Automated pitch control if signal is lost
If your RTK GPS signal is lost, use Pitch Control mode (with a pitch plow) to finish the run. Intended to keep you at your desired pitch in case of a lost signal but is not meant for large-scale installs.

3 Easy Steps to Tile Installation

1. SURVEY

Can be done ahead of time with an ATV, or at the time of installation with the tile plow utilizing RTK GPS. Collect surveys by driving over the path where tile needs to be placed to collect the surface elevation.

2. PLAN

Enter the desired minimum/maximum and target depths, as well as the minimum grade to drain excess water from the field. This can be done in the field or with the SMS™ Advanced Water Management Module.

3. INSTALL

Let InCommand with Intellislope do the work of precise control of the tile plow. The AutoTile mode will automatically adjust depth of the plow automatically or use manual grade or pitch control modes.

TILE DRAINAGE FAQ

What is tile drainage?

Tile drainage is a system of underground pipes that are installed to remove excess water from agricultural land, making it possible to cultivate crops in areas with high water tables or poorly drained soils.

What are the benefits of tile drainage?

Tile drainage can increase crop yields, improve soil structure, and reduce soil erosion. It can also reduce the risk of waterlogged soils and help to prevent disease and pest problems.

How does tile drainage work?

Tile drainage works by collecting excess water from the soil and directing it to an outlet, such as a ditch, stream, or other watercourse. The water is then carried away from the field, reducing the risk of waterlogging and improving soil structure.

What types of soils are suitable for tile drainage?
Tile drainage can be installed in a variety of soil types, including clay, silt, sand, and loam. The suitability of the soil will depend on several factors, including its texture, structure, and permeability. Soils that are high in clay content or have a compacted structure may have reduced permeability, making it more difficult for water to flow through the soil. In these cases, tile drainage can be used to improve the soil’s permeability and reduce the risk of waterlogging. On the other hand, soils that are high in sand content or have a porous structure may have high permeability, making it less likely that waterlogging will occur. In these cases, tile drainage may not be necessary. Ultimately, the suitability of soil for tile drainage will depend on local conditions and the goals of the agricultural operation.

How is tile drainage installed?

Tile drainage is typically installed using a machine called a tile plow. The plow creates a trench in the soil and the drainage tile is then placed in the trench. The trench is then filled with soil and compacted to ensure a tight seal.

 

How much does tile drainage cost?

The cost of tile drainage will depend on several factors, including the size of the field, the type of soil, and the type of drainage system used. It can be a significant investment, but the benefits of improved crop yields and reduced disease and pest problems can often offset the costs.

 

What are the maintenance requirements for tile drainage systems?

Tile drainage systems require relatively little maintenance. The primary concern is to keep the drainage tiles free of debris, which can clog the system and reduce its effectiveness.

 

Can tile drainage systems be retrofitted to existing fields?

Yes, tile drainage systems can be retrofitted to existing fields. The installation process involves digging a trench and installing the drainage tile. The trench is then filled with soil and compacted to ensure a tight seal.
