Tile Drainage

The old saying goes, "You pay for tile wherher you write a check or not!" With todays rising farmland values - - those extra bushels per acre are magic!

Farmers, landowners, investors alike are seeing an opportunity to enhance their net profits by installing drainage tile that systematically drains problem wet areas and creates higher corn and soybean yields. The return on their investment is great - - and the Internal REvenue Service lets you deduct the tile expense quickly versus the old long term depreciation schedules. Lots of activity in the countryside.
