October 24: Tile Drainage Research Conference at Miner Institute
One day conference to discuss the latest research and technology in tile drainage water management at the Miner Institute in Chazy, NY. This conference is co-sponsored by the Miner Institute, NY NRCS and LCBP.
The practice of installing tile drainage in poorly drained agricultural fields to improve workability, crop productivity and profitability has been a key management practice for more than 100 years. Tile drainage can offer multiple agronomic and environmental benefits. Under certain conditions, drainage may accelerate the loss of certain nutrients and site-specific practices may be needed to reduce losses to surface waters.
Please join us from 10 AM – 3 PM to discuss the latest research and technology in tile drainage water management.
