Agricultural tile drainage

Asked May 19, 2014, 12:03 PM EDT

I have a couple of farms that are 80% clay and concrete tile. We have done bandaid work with plastic tile but I would like to drive up a holistic or master tile plan and learn about gated tile that I hear is on the horizon to understand if would apply. One parcel has an alkali problem at on the north half and erosion problems on the south half.
