Sustainable Farming Fund Project Field Day: Innovative Drainage Management Technologies

Come along and learn more about an exciting project in the sand country looking at innovative ways of controlling and treating drainage water, looking at nutrient reduction below the soil.

Nutrient Management is a critical issue in agriculture with most of the attention based on how to make a difference above the soil.

The Sustainable Farming Fund Project is looking at controlling and treating drainage water from two irrigated properties in the Coastal Rangitikei region.


  • Learn about progress with the project to date.
  • How the control structures are working within a farm system.
  •  See a woodchip bioreactor under construction and learn how this is intended to reduce nitrogen in drainage water.
  • Understand how this project could be applied elsewhere.
