“Twenty inches of rain, since the first of June,” Adam Herre told me, on June 19th, 2015. Fortunately, Herre Farms of Rensselaer, Indiana, had invested in a Wolverine Extreme ditcher equipped with AMW Machine Control’s Ditch software. They planned and built their waterways in 2014.
Last fall, Adam mapped the elevation of his farm, then had surface depression models and flow paths built by AgRePlan. He went out to the field and connected the depressions along natural flows following the model maps to several outlets. So I asked Adam this morning, “How does it look? And what is the outcome after surface draining the farm?”
