Soil scientist Dr Bill Cotching presents a farm drainage tour with the Northeast Discussion Group and NRM North on Wednesday.

Draining waterlogged areas within paddocks improves soil health and production.

Dr Cotching, who works at the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture Cradle Coast, will cover the four rules of farm drainage, where water flows in the landscape and where to place drains for maximum effect.

He will also describe the most suitable drain types for different soils, drainage layout and drain installation.

The drainage tour will be held at Daisy Banks, 69 East Maurice Rd, Ringarooma, and Winnaleah between 11am and 2.30pm on Wednesday, September 20.

RSVP to NRM North at admin@nrmnorth.org.au or on 6333 7777.
