Feb. 11, 2014 | 0 comments

GREEN BAY

Ten topics are on the agenda for a seminar on tile drainage of agricultural land that is scheduled from 9 a.m.-3:45 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 24. It will be held at the Brown County Extension Service Center at 1150 Bellevue St. on the east side of Green Bay.

The scheduled speakers and their topics will include Joe Pagel of Drainage USA on what's been learned about tile drainage projects in Iowa, Brown County dairy farmer Mike Zirbel on his 10 years of experiences following his own installation of drain tile, University of Wisconsin biosystems engineer John Panuska on the basic engineering principles of subsurface drainage, crop consultant Steve Hoffman on methods of locating older and unmarked drainage systems, and Eric Cooley of the UW Discovery Farms program on the research results on tile in clay soils.

Other speakers will be representatives of federal and state agencies on the process of determining if drainage of wetlands is allowed, Larry Jarosinski on Angelica Tile on management of drained water and on the linking of old and new drainage systems, and Gary Derber of Wisconsin Tubing on new developments in the industry. The day will conclude with a panel discussion led by Pagel and Jarosinski.

The seminar program was organized by Extension Service conservation professional development and training coordinator Kevin Erb, who notes that the installation of drain tile has exploded on farms in northeast and east central counties in Wisconsin in recent years.

For attendees who have not yet made a reservation, the per person fee will be $25 for the meal and handouts. Checks payable to Brown County Treasurer should be sent to Brown County UW Extension, Attn. Joan, 1150 Bellevue St., Green Bay, WI 54302-2259. For more information, call 920-391-4610 and ask for Joan.
