why not just buy an advanced Exactrix system and save another
$150 to $300 per acre in nutrient costs….
Plus the yield improvement benefits using high quality
High Speed Banding (Mustang) costs about $15 to $20 more per
acre than top dressed N and pivot applied N….Banding is a
precision technique with timing and with
VR site specific.
Banding TAPPS and
TAPPKTS can take just a little more time and uses only the
best primary nutrients.
Raise your application costs by $20 per acre and get a
drought insurance policy of root pattern geometry and
access to powerful
TAPPS or TAPPKTS. Typically
TAPPS and TAPPKTS
produces another $150 per acre and up to $300 per acre under
center pivot production…After all crops need balanced
nutrients of NPK and S in the root zone….not just N.
Liquid Streaming Flows under high pressure make the difference
in crop availability. Mustang openers band deep at 6 inch
depths and greater in moist soil conditions.
Triple Super Ammonization, Crystalline
Nitrogen Stability of KTS and ATS with crop available
nutrients in wet or dry conditions. Maintain the critical
positive charge in the band with Hydra Hume.
13 At Smith Center, KS
A fill-up of an 18,000 gallon tank in July for NH3 was priced at
$560 per ton with farm storage.
In Western Kansas…Hugoton, Elkhart, Plains, Mead, Dodge City. The
price spread for N is about 142% more for urea.
The price spread for N is about 173% more for 32-0-0 or 28-0-0.
The spread can only increase between NH3, Urea and Solution 32…with
NH3 leading the drop in N pricing…producers will fall band N as NH3
with confidence the price is right…Whereby nobody knows what the
price will be for Urea.
“NH3 price should drop to 28 cents to 32 cents by November. NH3
pricing should level out at $450 to $500 per ton”….The great sage.
What about Phosphate?….11-52-0
or Dry P is 54 cents…APP is 88 cents. APP, 10-34-0 would need to be
$1.08 per lb. to allow 11-52-0 to compete for the banded nutrient P
in [ Exactrix Uniform and crystallized
200% higher efficiency of
APP , 10-34-0 pricing is expected to drop about 25% by
November to February.
Potash pricing has collapsed about 25% in the world market during
July as cartels breakup and more ammonia plants go on line.
By 2016 to 2017…NH3 will be an produced on a cost plus basis with
strong local competition in Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, and
Texas. Similar to the years previous to Farmland collapse…More
competition for the farmers inputs is apparent.
Offshore investment in new US Ammonia Plants is strong in Iowa,
Illinois and Louisiana. CHS also moving ahead at Jamestown, ND.
Stranded Natural Gas is the business opportunity.
