Innovation Description

This technology adds small blockages in furrows to adjust for the slopes that cause poorer uniformity in closed / cutback furrow systems. In sloping furrows, water tends to build up towards the closed furrow end. Making ties in the furrow levels out the water level along the slope.

Competitive Advantage

Making ties in the furrow levels out the water level along the slope.
