Land Drain Maintenance
Maintaining land drains is important for the success of your annual crops. Virtually all crops need a well-drained soil to grow well and official research has shown that yields from well drained lands are significantly higher than from land where drainage has been neglected.
At RC Baker Ltd we are equipped with specialist machinery to help reduce groundwater levels, salination and poor crop yields. Good management of field drainage systems can save you money and increase your productivity and opportunities for autumn and spring cultivations.
Our popular drain jetting service can specifically target the areas which are blocked by tracing the blockage along the pipe enabling us to dig down to remove the blockage in a localised position and reduce the area of soil disturbance.
“I was sceptical about the Drain Jetter but after a day’s work with RC Baker Ltd the outlets haven’t stopped running water for the last 12 months. Fitting the tracker to the nozzle and being able to assist us in mapping the older plastic and clay drain routes whilst simultaneously flushing the pipes through was a great advantage. The varying heads that assist in cutting through tree roots was impressive which in turn has saved us time and money. I will definitely be asking them back to clean more drains around the farm.” Nigel Fawdry, Village Farm.
