Mustang Banding Event. Feb. 13, 17
Dale Bathurst at Abilene, KS, Mustang Banded TATS to the 7 inch
depth between 30 inch rows. The band width is 15 inch spacing
allowing the TATS bands to surround the plant root system. Chelated
Zinc was used with Thio-sul® and NH3. Boron will most likely
be foliar applied with KTS and a fungicide at first petal crop in
Physically the soil received a true No-tillage deep banding in moist
soil. The vermiculated bands are in 7 inch depth with P-51,
Mustang C series openers at 65 lbs. N/a as NH3, Total 73 lbs. N/a,
and 7 gallons Thio-sul® or 7.7 lbs. N/a as Thio-sul® and 20 lbs.
Sulfur as Thio-Sul®. No 10-34-0 was applied at this time since the
following crop with receive TAPPS. A summer double crop such
as soybeans is planned in dryland double crop.
Why use sulfur? Protecting oil content potential assures the
fertilizer bill will be paid with the protein premium. The soil test
a good value for P and about 35 lbs./a of soil stored S.
Riley Winter Canola gets a “ Mustang Haircut.” As shown the loose,
surgical cut, dead leaves of the winter Canola were wind-blown
to other areas of the field.
Winter Canola harvest
comes ahead of winter wheat by 2 weeks. A major point and allowing a
double crop opportunity.
By the Numbers, what kind of return can we
Dale is planning for an early June harvest at 2,500 lb./a crop or 50
bushel/a, a good price would be 18 cents
per bushel or $9.00
per hundred lbs. with the oil premium.
This is $450 per acre gross potential. He spent $35 for TATS
fertilizer or about 8% of the gross income. Plus Winter Canola hits
the market early and well ahead of spring canola by 2 months,
soybeans by 3 months, and sunflowers by 4 months.
Dale used a strong rate of Thio-sul® to assure a protein building
high oil content seed. The premium is presently 15 cents per
bushel per 1% above 40% oil seed content. The North American market
focuses on a 45% oil content Canola.
Note: Giant Winter Canola. Use of Thio-sul in the PNW is common. In
the PNW, 2014 Winter Canola from Rubisco has made
very high oil content at 55% in some cases with deep and high
fertility Palouse soils in a winter rainfall climate. Yields at the
of Idaho variety plots at Genesee show chem-fallow yields as high as
6,900 lbs. per acre in 2014. Plant heights of certain
varieties in 2016 were over 7.5 feet (92 inches).
Kansas producers have not been using higher rates
sulfur to raise protein or oil content. TATS using Thio-sul® will
assure oil content. The crushing plant at Goodland, KS, ADM has been
offering a premium to get producers to deliver at a least 40% and
much higher to 45% which is considered nominal.
Dale was well pleased with his new crop and side dressing Mustang
TAPPS tool bar in winter Canola. He shifted chemically dropping APP
and advanced to a better bottom line using Thio-sul® to make TATS.
The typical application rates for TATS and TAPPS in irrigated
production winter Canola 80 bu./a are about double of the numbers
disclosed, 120-10-10-30S,1Zn,1/8B, 1/2 Cu. Exactrix producers spend
no more than 8 to 10% of the gross for nutrients to produce high
yields and good oil content. Top dressing producers spend up to 3
times more for nutrients and often have much lower yields winter
kill problems. 32-0-0 should not be used with winter Canola unless
it is a salvage operation.
Irrigated Winter Canola can also be double cropped immediately after
Harvest, allowing Rotational Band Loading and improved use of placed
nutrients from TAPPS and TATS. Thio-sul® stabilizes N and makes
micro nutrients available and it also assure both Sulfate and Sulfur
availability for high protein and good quality oil seed.
Drill seeding is not used. By using a planter the planting costs are
greatly reduced by around $20 per acre less cost for high quality
open and hybrid seed crosses.
Mustang Banding for 30
inch winter Canola rows.
The 30 foot bar has 15 inch band spacing., P-51C Mustang Openers.
A new belted tractor was used in 2 point lift assist. 8295T, Up to
10 mph banding speeds on large fields of winter wheat.
Canola was banded at 7 mph due to terraces and short runs.No growth
regulator was applied in late September.
The 30 inch winter canola rows did not quite close off last fall.
Spring Wake-up Call, banded deep, No top dressing.
Winter Wheat as TAPPS askew to rows and Winter Canola as TATS
indexed side dressed Feb. 13 to Feb 15.
Winter Canola was index side dressed with good results and no
concern about semi dormant winter Canola damage as observed by Dale
Bathurst of Tallmadge, KS, Abilene area.
