New farmer with new small farm. In some of the fields the soil does not drain particularly well (a feature of the soil series). I’m going to explore installing tile drainage but there’s one spot that’s really bad and I’m curious about (see images)
After a good rain the water pools and it stays there. Only if there is an extended dry spell will the area dry out. You can see it is a low spot but could this just be bad drainage? Serious compaction? or is there a spring under there? This field has been hay for several years but look at the vegetation in this area. One idea I have is to plow the area with a subsoiler and see if the drainage improves but I would appreciate any advice or observations. Thanks!
