    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.

    Speakers Include:
    • Dr. Matthew Helmers, Iowa State University —Best management practices for water quality
    in tile-drained systems
    • Larry Geohring, Cornell University — Historical and current drainage research in NNY
    • Dr. Bianca Moebius-Clune, Cornell University — Using Adapt-N to minimize nitrogen
    leaching to tile drainage water
    • Peter Wright, NY USDA-NRCS — Use of Subsurface Drainage in Conservation Practices
    Using the NYS Drainage Guide
    • Dr. Eric Young, Miner Institute — Tile drainage research at Miner Institute

    The meeting is free and open to the public.There is no registration fee, although space is limited so please pre-register by emailing Rachel Dutil at or 518-846-7121, ext. 115. Bring your own lunch or purchase a hot lunch at Miner for $5.
