Benefits of OptiSurface don't get clearer than this. Right side of the road the field is a write off due to a wet start to the season drowning the crop and the others side has been OptiSurface Landformed is drained perfectly with a nice crop. See more at http://OptiSurface.com/examples

Design Of The Month
Alberta Cereals and Oilseeds
Fixing Sloughs With Landforming and Strategic Ditches

If you can't see any images here, click 'Display images..' in your email software.
The field is located in Canada with large depressions scattered all over the field. The farmer had tried adding ditches to connect the ponding areas but still ponds as shown below.

Existing Drainage Analysis

The Existing Topography shows scattered ponding areas that need to be joined up and drained to one single exit point at the northeast corner.

The OptiSurface 4Way was used to design the field. This surface type lets water meander across the field and exit to the boundaries, but ridge subzones were added around the edges of the field to force water to exit to the northeast corner only.

Ditches were strategically placed and manually designed to through ridges where required. An explanation of how to design these into the surface is shown in the Feature of the Month.

Cut/Fill Map

If you can't see any images here, click 'Display images..' in your email software.
Most of the cuts are for connecting up the ponding areas and filling them up to get to drain.

Calculated earthworks (cut volume) on average is only 166 m³/ha.

See more details here.
Feature Of The Month
Points inside the Exclusion Subzone are not included in the calculation of the landform design. OptiSurface treats this area as a boundary, therefore allows drainage into the subzone.

The video below demonstrates how to use the Exclusion subzones along with breaklines to design ditches through ridges.
