Why Tile Runs are Appearing in some Wheat Fields

042913_2028_HaveILostAn1During the past 2 weeks Veritas has received several calls concerning uneven height and variability in the colour of wheat fields. In many of these cases, the pattern of good areas is matching up with tile drains. The symptoms are occurring in a variety of different soil types, various varieties as well as on different approaches on fertilizer application (dry versus liquid nitrogen, liquid starter fertilizer versus no starter fertilizer at planting ).
