The Trimble® WM-Drain® farm drainage solution is a concept to completion toolset that streamlines the survey, analysis, design, installation, and mapping steps of surface and subsurface drainage.
The WM-Drain solution ensure optimal 3D drain placement, which improves crop yields by controlling ponding, optimizing root depth, maximizing planting seasons, and minimizing nutrient loss.
Benefit from Streamlined Drainage
- Complete all your drainage operations with one integrated solution
- Improve crop yields up to 30%
- Increase operating efficiency up to 20% compared to laser equipment
- Maintain a more developed root zone for better nutrient absorption
- Remove excess water from the field and lower plant stress
- Reduce field compaction and minimize soil erosion
- Use with any type of drainage plow—self-propelled, pull-type, chain, or wheel trenchers, ditches, scrapers or any other water management implement
- Choose to apply water only to the best producing areas within a field
Collect 3D field data, such as boundaries and section lines, with ease.
- FmX® integrated display – popular in-cab display can be unlocked for the WM-Drain solution at a positioning level of RTK or GLONASS for topographic mapping
- WM-Topo™ survey system – portable solution can be used separately or in conjunction with the FmX display to collect topographic data in hard-to-reach areas such as ditches, steep terrain, muddy fields, or fields with mature crop cover
Analyze the 3D field data using Farm Works Surface™ software
to make better-informed drainage decisions.
- 3D modeling
- Contour functionality
- Watershed modeling
- Flow arrows
- Tributary tracking
Design and verify a complete 3D drainage system using Surface software or design drainage lines on-the-go without having to leave your vehicle.
- Horizontal pipe location
- Vertical design
- Automatic pipe sizing recommendations
- Verification that water will flow to the main outlet adequately
Take your designs back to the field and utilize the WM-Drain module on the FmX display and Trimble's 3D machine control technology for precise installation of your pipe or surface ditches.
- T3™ Enhanced Terrain Compensation Technology to correct the vertical position for roll
- IMD-600 sensor for controlling boot pitch on a parallel link plow
Map the true location of your installed drainage pipes or ditches to utilize the records for future maintenance or drainage expansion projects.
