Advanced Drainage Systems Launches New App to Support Agricultural Drainage Planning

App Supports Increased Tiling and Higher Yields

HILLIARD, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Advanced Drainage Systems, Inc. (ADS) (NYSE:WMS) has developed the Agricultural Drainage App, a new mobile application for planning agricultural drainage systems, offering automatic calculations for both the proper quantity and type of pipe needed to achieve the drainage required. Free to download, it is now available from the App Store and on Google Play.


"This is another step in our ongoing plan to provide products, tools and support that increase yield potential from every acre of land," stated Bob Klein, Executive Vice President, Sales at ADS. "Since 1966, ADS has been committed to bringing innovative solutions to agricultural drainage and this app is a continuation of that commitment."

With simple inputs from the user like acres, drainage coefficient and grade; the app can calculate quantity of pipe needed utilizing the company's single wall, N-12® and HP pipe, determine the proper pipe diameter and the associated cost to drain the specified area.

The new ADS app incorporates other ADS design tools that can be used in planning a holistic agricultural drainage system. If a lift station is required, the Pump Size calculator allows the user to determine everything from the horsepower needed, the storage required, and overall system size. The ADS G.R.O.W. (Greater Return on Water Management) Analysis section gives the user the ability to determine their total cash return on an investment in field tile drainage.
