If you are attempting to grow a crop of any size, or are simply trying to control the drainage in your yard, you may want to consider putting in an advanced draining system, in order to distribute the perfect amount of water to the plants, while increasing the efficiency of the yield. These drainage systems are used by just about every single individual or business that is growing crops for commercial purposes, although you will also find them in many people’s backyards, especially those who have large yards with a great deal of foliage, sometimes with the intent on developing things such as grapes for wine or hops for beer. If you are in fact in the agricultural field, but you do not utilize an advanced draining system yet, there is a very high chance that you would drastically increase your efficiency if you were to have a professional company come out and put in one of these systems for you.

Above the Ground Systems
* There are two main types of draining systems that you can use on your fields, but they essentially do the same thing. They are basically ways that help you regulate the amount of water that is in your field, by having draining systems that you can control, usually through valves that can be opened or closed. There are drainage systems that sit up above the ground, which are typically thin lines of ditches that are dug through the crops, which you have likely seen all over the place while on a drive through an agricultural area, as they are in just about every major field, growing every crop you can think of.

* These are called surface drainage systems and they operate entirely by gravity. These types of systems are also used in various rice fields, as well as crawfish farms, as the area is essentially flooded down through slopes and kept in that flooded state for the majority of the season.

Subsurface Systems
* The second type of advanced draining system is a subsurface drainage system. These basically involve underground pipes and basins, which feed down to different valves that can be opened and closed to regulate the overall amount of water in the field. These are incredibly useful and they can save a massive amount of water in the long run, although there is no question that these types of systems a lot more money to put in, as they involve constructing a piping system that is underground.
