This farmer is a friend to the environment. After some experimentation, Joe Kerr has established a simple combination of drainage fittings that effectively collect and supply water to wetland, without compromising his field drainage system. To date, 20 acres of farmland has been modified with this new technology. This innovation is a ‘win-win’ as it allows wildlife to enjoy the wetland while the farmer saves money. It’s a great example of environmental stewardship that benefits the business of agriculture.
