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.
  • TMX-2050™ display or FmX® integrated display – popular in-cab displays 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 TMX-2050 or FmX displays 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 WM-Subsurface 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 TMX-2050 or 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.
