Land Drainage


AMS contracting uses the latest Trimble® FieldLevel™ II system which streamlines the surveying, designing, and levelling steps required for land levelling projects. FieldLevel II helps ensure optimal water management by providing improvements in yields, water usage, and farm productivity.

Proud Partner

  • Improve crop yields up to 30%
  • Increase land & rental values
  • Reduce machinery costs
  • Reduce input costs
  • Larger scope of cropping
  • Maintain a more developed root zone for better nutrient absorption
  • Remove excess water from the field and lower plant stress
  • Reduce field compaction and minimise soil erosion

AMS Contracting will precisely map fields using Trimble’s latest survey software to create a highly accurate topographic survey which will allow designs to be carried out. Measurements from watercourses, flow directions culvert size and soil types to ensure a highly accurate design is created. AMS contracting uses an ATV with mounted survey equipment. This is a fast, highly accurate and has minimal damage to current cropping. Surveys have been completed within a few hours. Collated data is then taken to the office where the design procedure will begin.

Design is one of the most important aspects of any drainage system. AMS use sub-surface drainage software to design their clients drainage projects. CAD designs help reduce the downtime in the field due to the fact that issues can usually be overcome during the design process. Sub-surface software calculates pipe size, pipe depth, pipe centres and the number of overall drainage lines to meet with the client’s requirements. This system allows clients to remain flexible with their drainage requirements. Designs can be created for the entire field, however, if the clients only want to install 50% this can be achieved with the remained being installed at a later date with no issue. Before installation drainage designs are talked through with the client and tweaked until a full understanding and agreement are made.

Once the sub-surface drainage is installed. All drains are mapped accurately so they can be maintained throughout their life. There are many different map formats to choose from.
