AMES, IOWA, August 28, 2012 – IntellislopeTM, a new family of functionality available through the INTEGRA™ display, provides tile plow control for installing field drainage tile. Installing field drainage tile improves soil tilth for better root development, lengthening planting windows and providing better nutrient access for crops by removing excess moisture from the soil profile.
Intellislope offers unmatched drainage tile productivity by eliminating manual grade calculations, laser tripod setup and repositioning hassles.

Plan the depth and grade of the tile, and allow the INTEGRA to control the depth and grade as you Install. Intellislope works with pitch tile plows, including the Soil-MaxTM Gold Digger. Survey and Installation data is logged and can be archive into mapping programs such as SMSTM Basic or Advanced to track for future reference, and tile system additions.
“The benefits of good sub-surface water management using drainage tile are tremendous. Earlier soil warm-up and longer planting windows, better nutrient management during the growing season, and reduced surface runoff are all advantages a well-drained field can provide,” said Aaron Friedlein, Product Manager at Ag Leader Technology. “Intellislope makes it simple to properly install drainage tile that can lead to increased flexibility and higher yield.”
