Farmers

"I was impressed by just how little work had to be done, have we'd been doing it the traditional way of moving dirt in the early 90s, we would have done 4x the work."

Michael Gray
Farmer, Wakefield Partners, Arkansas, USA

"We've had about 12" of rain and water has been flowing through that paddock we OptiSurfaced, but it is draining brilliantly. You can't believe how much better it is!"

"We harvested about 20 per cent more crop from the OptiSurfaced area following a flood in March.  We are confident the investment is already paying off."

Wade Bidstrup
Farmer, Aloe Farming Co., Queensland, Australia
View Example Field

"Instead of doing dirt work by laser and having to cut as much as 500 cu.yd/ac, on the same farm, we were lowering it to as little as 125 cu.yd/ac. Doing it at a much lower cost and with a lot less destruction to the top soil."

Bobby Hoard
Farmer, Hoard Farms, Arkansas, USA

"We're impressed by the comprehensive way you go about the design, looking at all the options and the most cost effective way of getting the drainage right."

"We are very happy with your service and the outcomes have been excellent."
Recommendation Rating: 9/10

Tristan Nitschke
Farmer, Queensland, Australia

"We don't have to wait two or three years for the topsoil to recover and reap the benefits of land grading. With OptiSurace, the year after, all the water drains out nicely and with minimized earthworks, topsoil disturbance is reduced."

Billy Beaudry
Farmer, Beaudry Farms, Quebec, Canada

"OptiSurface works great! It's probably the most improvement you can do to your farm for the least amount of money."

"Ponding is a huge issue here. This farm has probably lost a third of its yield for the last 30 years to ponding. After we're done with the project (earthworks), we had a large rain event and we got out there to see the ponding gone is real striking!"

"This experiment has been a spectacular success since I managed to squeeze out 200 bushels per acre off of this farm which many people previously consider not suitable for corn."

"The improvement in productivity is also amazing! It's absolutely remarkable how much quicker we can plant, spray and harvest this field with so many of the ditches removed."

Craig Craft
Farmer, Craft Farms, North Carolina, USA

"I would give OptiSurface a 10 out of 10 for customer service and product quality. You guys are great!"

"Here is a video that we took of a field that we landformed. We were able to landform this field, plant some cover crop on it and then we received a 3 inch rain. This is a video of the field as it’s draining. It couldn’t have worked out any better- all the water flowed down the furrows (tire tracks), into the small ditch on the end of the field rows, then perpendicular to the rows at the end of the field and right into the tile inlet. In a matter of a couple hours all of the surface water was drained off the field!"

David Van Drunen
Farmer, Van Drunen Farms, Illinois, USA
View Example Field

"After significant rainfall, I flew up in my plane and got some pictures. As far as you can see, ponds are gleaming in everybody's field. I looked into my field which I have just completed and there wasn't one pond standing on that field."

"Everything I have OptiSurfaced, I haven't had to replant anything (due to drown outs). That's pretty cool! I've also got rid of dozens of surface drains (inlet pipes)"

Jeff Kelly
Farmer, Frymire Farms, Illinois, United States

"That field is finally coming in with some winter wheat and it looks terrific! We're so pleased with the way it came out."

"No more ponding, damping off, salt accumulation. The water goes in as evenly as it goes on. This is a completely different field!"

Mark Dunn
Farmer, Railroad Valley Farms, Nevada, United States

"After the first rain, I saw the water went where we wanted it to and I was absolutely convinced that OptiSurface was the right program for us."

Robbie Commens
Farm Manager, Salt Spray Farms, New South Wales, Australia

"I can only say, so far, everything is Perfect."                                               Recommendation Rating: 10/10

Soeren Gimmini
Farmer, Germany

Your service is great! You answer always very quick and I think you have a lot of experience! I wouldn't do this by myself!

"The results are far exceeding my expectations."

User Satisfaction Rating: 10 out of 10

Roger Stonner
Farmer, Missouri, USA

"OptiSurface Designer is very simple to use and easy to understand how to make a plan."

Recommendation Rating: 10/10

Martin Baril
Quebec, Canada

"What most impressed me is we can take the idea of 'Inifitely Variable Grade' to country that otherwise wouldn't be considered drainable."

"Our field was as bad and difficult drainage situation that I think you'd had a go at. If we can nail this, then there's a lot more country we could look at."

"At the end of the day, the most critical thing for us is to have good quality soil in the (tree) mounds. And because we didn't have to move too much soil and rarely had to go to the subsoil with poor quality soil, I think we've done that."

Matthew Durack
Owner, Salt Spray Farms, New South Wales, Australia

"Great product. Good support. Prompt service. Happy customer."

Consultants

"I was impressed by how much less soil we were moving and all round flexibility of the program, all the analysis tools and the flexibility of what designs you can do."

"OptiSurface allows us to give farmers a complete solution and being able to analyze that solution before implementing it."

"With OptiSurface, we are moving so much less soil and we have much better suited and complete designs without cutting all the topsoil."

"Were very happy with OptiSurface services. We always get feedback quickly. New features, the ones that are possible, usually gets built in fairly quickly to the new updates."

Stephan Geldenhuys
AgriDrainage

"Continuously variable grade change is a breakthrough technology."

"All the analytic tools (like Drainage Analysis) helps you refine the design which is very useful."

"The biggest benefit is significantly reduced cuts."

Alasdair Harris
Agricultural Engineer, South Africa

"Instead of spending $1000/ha ($400/ac) on Laser Leveling, with OptiSurface we're getting in the order of about $200/ha ($80/ac). Not only you save money on shifting dirt, you're also avoiding the reduced productivity from scalping topsoil."

Tim Neale
Consultant, PrecisionAgriculture.com.au, Australia

"OptiSurface gives a lot of decision tools, and design options that enable you to make informed decisions, and also gives the cheapest earthworks options."

Trevor Beaumont
Irrigation Engineer, Asia & Africa

"This is the solution I have been looking for since my GeoStar/MultiPlane days, over 15 years ago. Thanks guys."

Arnie Hinkson
Consultant, Hinkson Land Tech, Nebraska, USA

" I certainly recommend Optisurface to everyone who have to do land levelling.  Also, I want to thank you for the good support and everything else you were doing for me in the past months."                               Recommendation Rating: 9/10

Jonathan Beaudry
Consultant, Club Soleillevant, Quebec, Canada

"The workshop was extremely informative and hands on.  We were taken slowly through all the basic design steps enabling all in attendance to feel confident to try on their own.  To note, however, was the after sales support which we initially received and continue to receive three years later."

Alasdair Harris
Consultant, llovo Sugar Ltd., Mozambique

"My recommendation would be at 9 out of 10. I have found the Optisurface Designer to be very effective and a user friendly software."

Mlungisi Ncube
Consultant, Green Fuel, Zimbabwe

"I am truly impressed, it scares me a little because I thought more soil would need to be moved.  Plus, it can't be that easy."

Rick Greene
Consultant, MFA Inc., Missouri, USA

"OptiSurface has a clear and user friendly interface. With balanced zones, farmers know where to cut dirt and fill hole.

Our biggest benefits is the time of execution. We design 10,000 ac (4,000 ha) in less than four months each year. Currently, we are able to deliver design to our customers in less than 24h during the rush period."

Adrien Doulle
Consultant, JLD-Laguë, Canada

"System works flawlessly.  Always been a big fan.

Have used Trimble WM Form and hated it.  Did the free trial and didn't even finish it.  Deleted it off my computer the same day.

You guys have always made improvements from listening to customers. Preston has also always been a big help to myself as well as customers."

Lee Machen
Consultant, Arkansas, USA

"I am really impressed with your software. It seems to me the only way forward for land grading in agriculture. Well done."

Tony Crowley
Consultant, Independent Agricultural Resources Pty Ltd, Australia

"It is good and easy to use the program and the support is also good."

Contractors

"I was looking for a cheaper way to get water management earthworks done so more farmers can afford it, and OptiSurface was the answer."

Bentley Devazier
Contractor, Devazier Excavating, Arkansas, USA

"You can potentially spend a couple of days designing a complex design with Multiplane ending at about 400 - 500 m3/ha.  But designing the same field with OptiSurface, you can spend a maximum of 2 hrs and get the earthworks down to under 200 m3/ha."

Larry Lawrence
Contractor, Burdekin Laser Services, Queensland, Australia

"Before OptiSurface: We had a tough time relaying and communicating plans and estimating dirt moving for our customers."

Garnet Peters
General Manager, Precision Land Solutions, Manitoba, Canada

"OptiSurface has definitely brought customers that may have not moved any dirt before because of the low yardage. "

"I'm impressed with the least amount of (earthworks cubic) yardage we've moved from these high yardage fields."

Lawrence Fielder
Contractor, Turman Construction, Arkansas, USA

"Have the best tech support I have ever worked with.  GREAT product and service!!"                                               Recommendation Rating: 10/10

Colten Penrod
Contractor, Illinois, USA

"I was frankly amazed!! I had expected to see upwards of 100 thousand cubic metres to sort this job out. OptiSurface came in at 27 thousand cubic metres, saving my client many tens of thousands of dollars and keeping my company ahead of the competition and profitable. Thanks again.”

Neil Garson
