Underground field drainage improves field productivity
The transformation of open ditches into crop land through underground drainage increases the arable land area by 10-20%. At the same time, shaping, sowing, and harvesting takes less time, as machinery is able to work more efficiently. New drainage is typically needed when improving the drainage of old fields or changing field parcels. Field drainage plans take into account the landscape, soil quality, ground water conditions, possible discharge locations, and the locations of drainage water collection and pipes as well as their service drains.
Uponor field drainage pipes are flexible, corrugated PVC pipes that are mainly used for the drainage of fields, lawns, and other areas with vegetation. In addition to ordinary perforated coiled and standing pipes, the selection includes unperforated installation pipes coated with coconut filters. Uponor field drainage pipes comply with the quality and functional requirements of the SFS 5211 standard and have been granted the SFS marking. The selection also includes drum and combination pipes for ditches in fields and roads.
In addition to the pipes, the field drainage system includes underground drainage chambers and outlets. Check the product catalogue for all components of the system.
