Researchers at Michigan State University are promoting tile drainage structure design as a way to reduce nutrient loss.

Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering researcher Ehsan Ghane tells Brownfield controlled drainage systems are even more efficient at managing water movement than traditional field tiling.

“The reason they need conservation drainage in there is to at the same time as increasing the profitability of the crop yield benefits, they can actually protect the water quality as well and retain the valuable nutrients in the field,” he says.
