Proper soil drainage is important for several reasons. By drawing excess moisture out of the ground, the chemical action of the sun and rain works into the soil, deepening it, making it warmer and improving its texture. Land can be worked earlier in the spring, crops do not fail as easily in wet seasons and water runs off faster after heavy rains. On loan to Farmamerica as of 2010.
