It is time for precautions and maintenance!
Climate change, which now affects all regions of the world, is causing more and more widespread extreme weather phenomena. Heavy rainfall and other severe weather events are becoming increasingly frequent and are often the cause of floods and difficulties in managing water resources. Agriculture and forestry depend heavily on certain temperatures and precipitation levels, from which they are particularly affected. A correct creation and maintenance of water networks, which can be done by using ditchers suitable for water drainage, is essential for limiting the damage caused by heavy rainfall, which we are seeing more and more frequently.
If a plot of land needs a drainage system, you can choose among numerous alternatives. The cheapest one is to dig ditches that remove excess water from the cultivated land, channelling it to a sump pump drain or drainage channel. The ditches are particularly useful in flat and low areas where it would be difficult to obtain the slope or "fall" required for drainage with buried pipes.
Since 1980 Cosmeco has offered a wide range of rotary ditchers suitable for both excavation and maintenance of ditches and drains. A proper maintenance, even before sowing, will be essential to facilitate the irrigation of the fields. Even before the rainy season begins, it is good to create canals systems or dugouts to prepare a rainwater drainage network. If a plot of land needs a drainage system, you can choose between several alternatives:
The wide range proposed by Cosmeco includes rotary ditchers designed and manufactured for many water control applications, such as those listed below:
The channel created with the Cosmeco machines is clean and sculpted, thus letting the water flow freely from the unwanted areas or distributing it along the irrigation networks.
The vertical ditchers produced by Cosmeco are valid allies not only for drainage but also for sub-irrigation, which is a very effective system for the precise distribution of water under the ground or for the underground laying of pipes and electric cables. The result of the excavation is almost perfect, the vertical walls remain defined and polished, requiring only a few subsequent maintenance interventions and allowing a continuous disposal of the excess water which damages the crops or prevents the proper working of the land. The weight and the small size of the smaller models allow working also in pre-existing plants of young orchards and vineyards, without damaging the root systems and moving only the strictly necessary material. For this reason, they are successfully used both inside and outside the greenhouse, or to simply earth up the nylon at the base of the tunnels.
Those produced and sold by Cosmeco are useful ditchers for a large number of applications; each of them is able to bring advantages concerning the following aspects:
