Bilbrey. Each farm has a different drainage problem. Mr. Bilbrey pointed out, and the following suggestion.-, should be gcncrnlly helpful in aid- mg farmers solve these problems After a heavy rain, farmers should locate the nniural drains from the field or area in need of drainage, he stated. Then stakes should >ie set for convenient markers alonn the path of the natural flow of run-off water. Estimate the number of acres the natural drain is servicing and then measure the depth of the water left standing in the field as soon us it stops j-un- This, plus a feu- additional inches .should give a ditch depth enough to carry Hie water and give proper droiniiKe. V-Type Ditches Freferred V-tyne ditches, which are easilv maintained, arc desirable' for shal'- J.ow fields, he stated. Outlets for the-field'Tiilchcs ire necessary and al-e usually dug with draglines. However, in many cases, existing outlets are still deep enough to service the fields, lie explained. Tor best results, a farm or engineer's level should be used lo determine the exact cut needed at all stations along the drainage ditc-i By doing this, the width of the ditch can he figured by noting the area to be drained. i By keeping weeds mowed in the ' shallow V-tlitcli, longer service will ; be obtained before cleaning is necessary. Mr. Bilbrey stated. Spoil uanks irom dragline ditches which are allowed to grow up in weeds and bushes will partially fill th- • ditches themselves. Spreading spoil tanks makes possible better maintenance of dragline ditches, he said.
