Recent field studies have shown that in some cases tile drains have been ineffective in increasing crop production. This paper examines the effect that the policies of 40 meter minimum spacing and aggregating large areas under a single drain design may have upon the effectiveness of tile drains. An approach that synthesizes crop yield response, the physics of drainage and economics is used to determine the possible cost of these two policies. A case study from the Nile Delta is examined.

The paper shows that these policies can have a great effect upon the efficiency of tile drain performance under certain conditions.
