Optimal Drain Distance Calculations

To make sure that yield is not negatively effected by long periods of precipitation, or to maintain a high quality sports field whole year round, an optimal drainage system is essential. Therefore, Lumbricus uses a mathematical approach for the optimal drain distance.

To this end, we first go into the field to determine the properties of the respective field – the depth of horizons, the depth to the impermeable layer and we measure the saturated hydrolic conductivity

Next, this data is used as input in the mathmatical formula’s which provide the optimal drain distance for the specific properties of your field or pitch.
