Nebraska, Anhydrous Ammonia and Snow go together, Spring Snowstorm
to optimum banding of TAPPS on Cereal Rye Cover Crop.
in Shelton, Nebraska
25, 2016, about 11:00 AM. The 24,
P-51C Mustang openers are banding on 15 inch centers
with high speed 7 x 7 tool bar.
The cover crop is cereal rye and as planned, the soil condition is
excellent for No-tillage banding of crystalline TAPPS
(Tri-Ammonium Poly Phosphate Sulfate, Ammoniated Zinc) with variable
rate, site specific in 4 zones.
Banding is at the 6-to 7-inch depth .
The Exactrix Mustang P-51C Tool Bar is formulating TAPPS
with excellent sealing.

are definitely effective, as they leave very few tracks in the cover
The cereal rye cover crop allowed the

A good root
structure resulted in stabilizing the soil to prevent
soil lifting. Cereal Rye was seeded into soybeans at the end of September.
