Go for the good crop.  

 Spend about 8% to 12% of the average yield at current price of $6.50 per bushel of HRWW at an average dryland yield of 35 bushels per acre.  

For Great Plains Winter Wheat with good protein, You can spend no more than $32.00 per acre for wheat production…you will be fine when Dryland nutrients are banded to 7 to 8 inches in depth winter wheat hangs on in drought.  

For Nebraska, Kansas, Irrigated Corn Production in the 270 bushel per acre range….When corn is priced $5.65 cents per bushel you do not need to spend more than 8% of the gross income for nutrients and it could be less with Exactrix VRT-Site Specific. 

Use Exactrix Mustang Binary Banding  and seed directly on top of one 15 inch band in Index and you can reduce nutrients and get the good yield with Geometry and 1% CV of application of TAPPKTS plus Zn.  

You can spend 8% or $122.04 per acre….and use another $60.00 per acre for two ton of fluid Lime this fall.  

Guy Swanson says, “Ammonia is a good buy all the way to $2,000 per ton….you just won’t need to use as much. It is true when applying 166% more crop available N and 200% more crop available P with K and S.”  

The Key is Application Uniformity of 1% CV,  The soil pH, CEC, No-tillage Farming and Rotational Band Loading. And always apply as deep as possible. 

At soil pH of 6 to 6.5 pH in Nebraska or in Western KS to a soil 8.5 pH, The formula is 130 to 140 lbs. N as NH3, 5 gallons APP, 5 Gallons ATS and 5 gallons KTS and .5 gallon Helena hormonal, Tra-fix Zinc 

If it does start raining the soil will begin to mineralize the extra N. Placed nutrients are only a stimulant to get the best economic level. The term plant food is well overused.  

Always remember….it is a faith based business….and it will rain.
