WATER MANAGEMENT STUDY TILE SPACING

2021 OHIO CORN WATER MANAGEMENT STUDY TILE SPACING

  • Ohio

The purpose of this study is to compare different subsurface tile widths and their effects on yield and return on investment (ROI).

 

2021 RESULTS

 

OBSERVATION

Every year is different, and your farm, your soils, and their hydrologic characteristics will determine the proper tile size and spacing. One thing is clear from this multi-year study, however; tile pays.
