Farm Works™ Surface software is an analysis and design tool for use with the Trimble® WM-Drain™ farm drainage solution. Surface ensures the optimal placement of tile and surface drains in both surface and sub-surface drainage water management projects, helping to drain fields adequately and increase crop yields. Easily overlay other layers such as yield or soil types to help visualize the field from different perspectives.

  

Automatic Pipe Sizing

Calculate the recommended pipe size for all pipes within a given design, as well as generate an estimate on total cost and material required for the drainage project, to help you quickly and efficiently produce optimal drainage designs while reducing your overall costs.
  • Eliminate guesswork by calculating pipe sizes automatically based on terrain, depth, drainage coefficient, and more
  • Create optimal drainage designs for both large and small pipes without the difficulty of manual calculations
  • Generate estimate costs for each drainage design by entering your average length of role, minimum tile length, and price per foot
