Subsurface Irrigation in Minnesota and North Dakota
Ellingson Companies provides subsurface irrigation in Minnesota, North Dakota, the Upper Midwest, and throughout the Nation
Through the use of control structures and supplementary water introduced through onsite irrigation water sources the grower is able to precisely manage the water table level. Subsurface Irrigation provides very distinct advantages over traditional surface irrigating such as water conservation, ability to irrigate irregularly shaped fields, reduced operating costs, and reduction in nitrate runoff.
As with Controlled Drainage, Subsurface Irrigation is most applicable on topography with less than 0.5% slope and in geographic regions that regularly experience extended dry periods or irregular precipitation patterns.
- Overall improvement in soil quality
- Reduction of nitrate loss
- Limited maintenance
- Irrigate irregular shaped fields
- Cuts down on weed growth and germination
- Reduces soil crusting
- Consumes less than 50% of the water compared to traditional pivot irrigation systems
