Feb. 10, 2014, Michigan – The Michigan State University Institute of Water Research is hosting a seminar on controlled drainage systems on Feb. 12.

The practice of capturing more water to be used during dry season and still allowing for rapid drainage during periods of excess water in spring and fall is being used successfully in many other states and counties. Dr. Larry Brown will discuss agricultural drainage water management concepts, purpose and benefits. Water quality issues including management of nitrogen and phosphorus using controlled drainage will also be presented. An overview of controlled drainage design will highlight most crucial issues in designing the system. Midwest initiative water quality and crop yield study results from Cornbelt states will be discussed.
