Water Management + Agronomy = H2Onomy

A New Mindset. A New Level Of Precision.

At Element, we bring the sciences of water management and agronomy together – combined with knowledge from nearly a half-century of drainage experience – to guide better water-related decisions. We call it H2Onomy, but you’re likely to call it “getting more from your water.”

H2Onomy goes beyond the conventional drain-the-wettest-field-first practice to help prioritize farm and field water management spending. We compare and contrast detailed data from your fields to forecast where you’ll get the highest ROI on your drainage dollar, much like precision agriculture maps out where you’ll get the biggest bang for your buck on crop inputs.

Assessment

  • Prioritize which field to invest drainage dollars
  • Justify drainage investment to:
    • Lender
    • Business Partner(s)
    • Landlord
  • Assess potential land purchases
  • Negotiate cash rent contracts
  • Strategic planning

Design

  • Field & operation specific planning (all tile is not created equally):
    • Soil characteristics and productivity
    • Crop rotation (cost & saturation susceptibility)
    • Weather related risks
  • Reduce “decision-to-installation” lead-time
  • Facilitate “apples-to-apples” cost estimates

Yield Analysis (coming soon)

  • Monitor the financial performance of your drainage investment
  • Pin-point areas that can be improved
  • “All-things-drainage” archived in one place & accessible from anywhere (i.e. assessments, designs, existing tile, yield performance, etc.)

    • Including existing tile maps from ANY current customer

Expedite easement procurement process by:

  • Provide confidence to land-owners that their existing infrastructure is the hands of a drainage company with nearly 50 years of experience
  • Provide land-owners with drainage design with and without your infrastructure to show the impact (if any) of any future drainage installations

Save significant amounts of rural infrastructure project costs by:

  • Eliminating down-time due to unforeseen tile issues
  • Providing contractors with accurate records of existing infrastructure and eliminating the “best guess” methodology
  • Providing cost effective “re-route” solutions prior to construction to eliminate the “damage then repair” methodology
