August 10 | 9:00am – 2:00pm
Farmers will have a unique opportunity to see the world’s only Dual Force Technology drainage plow in person Wednesday, August 10. Veldkamp Drainage is hosting a farm drainage field day on Highway 30 and County Road 17 just west of Rogers.
Dual Force Technology is a unique method of simultaneously installing two lateral lines spaced 15-feet apart, and attendees can see it in action. The Field Day will include pattern tiling installation demonstrations and information will be provided about modern system drainage techniques. System drainage or pattern tiling has become extremely popular in the region as it helps area growers significantly improve yields and simplifies annual field operations.
Michael Gutzmer, PhD will present “Understanding Wetland Compliance”. With his 40 years of environmental management-related experience, Dr. Gutzmer will explain everything from ‘what does it take to be a wetland’ to the process of achieving compliance.
