We switched over to plasticulture this year. Why you may ask, to save on irrigation water lol. Of course this is the wettest spring summer ever that I remember. Over 30 inches of rain since April 1. In years past we always had to irrigate and did that with sprinklers. This year we are using drip tape. We have only irrigated/ fertigated once because of standing water in the field.
Over the last week we have gotten 3 and 5 inch rain days. So now we are flooding. I am confident that if we wouldn't have done raised beds we would be ruined for the year.
My question is we stratigicly laid the field out to hold some water, but am thinking this may be too much. I have standing water everywhere and am thinking about using the skid steer to drain it. Is there any reason I shouldn't do this??
