Sports & 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 to ensure optimal water management by providing improvements in yields, water usage, and farm productivity.

Using Trimble’s latest survey software, AMS can create highly accurate topographic surveys which will allow designs to be carried out. Using an ATV with mounted survey equipment, highly accurate measurements from watercourses, flow directions culvert size and soil types can be quickly taken with minimal damage to current cropping.

AMS use sub-surface drainage software to design their clients drainage projects which calculates pipe size, pipe depth, pipe centres and the number of overall drainage lines to meet with the client’s requirements. Designs can be created for all, or part, of a field and can prevent downtime in the field, pre-empting and overcoming issues before the install phase.

Once the sub-surface drainage is installed, all drains are mapped accurately so they can be maintained throughout their life.

Benefits of Streamlined Drainage

  • Reduce machinery costs
  • Reduce input costs
  • Larger scope of cropping
  • A developed root zone for better nutrient absorption
  • Remove excess water from the field & lower plant stress
  • Reduce field compaction and minimise soil erosion
