Exactrix Plots A Solution For The High Plains,
Iron Chlorosis of Soybeans, Corn and Milo
 The Soils are different. This is not Iowa.

Why do soybeans need placed nutrients with
 Exactrix® Tri-Flow Injection to get Iron Chlorosis under control?

Why do soybeans need placed nutrients and Exactrix Tri-Flow Injection to get Iron Chlorosis under control?

The pH chart tells the story when soybeans are raised west of the Missouri.

Finding A Solution For Iron Chlorosis.


The availability of certain nutrients is greatly reduced and especially if the soils are cold and wet, loaded with salts, and have high pH. Note that NPKS, Zinc, Manganese, Iron, and Boron must be applied uniformly.

This is why 10-34-0 or Ammonium Poly Phosphate at a 10 gallon per acre rate is needed in combination with KTS® at 3 gallon rate. 

That is 13 gallons plus 1 to 2 gallons of micro nutrients need to be added in a vermiculated band.

Poly Phosphate application allows up to 3 to 4 lbs. of metals to be applied with the Phosphate. Zinc and Manganese are required with a small amount of Boron.

Crystallized TAPPKTS using NH3 is used to crystallize the PKS and micros. A small amount of around 15 lbs. N as NH3 per acre.

TAPPKTS plus micros are formed deep in a vermiculated band to the 7 to 8 inch depth.

Iron Chlorosis Resolved. The critical part of the discussion is Iron and how to get it to work in these soils.

A third product 2KP system is added with Looking Glass Manifolds and this 2KP system can meter small 1 gallon per acre rates of Ferrilene.

The product Ferrilene® is used and it is released in a 2 inch wide zone about 2 to 3 inches in depth.

Operating the planter directly on top of the band assures a soybean stand with Iron inclusive and very close to the row but not in the soybean seed row.

Iron in the soybean seed row damages Rhizobia that must be placed with the planter.

A very critical point is the planter must run directly on top of the TAPPKTS and Ferrilene band to get the great start it needs.

Wherever the Buffalo Roam. You will find high soil pH and calcareous and salty type soils.
Obviously the 40 million Buffalo preferred the Great Plains and this is what they left behind.
Soils in the 7.5 to 8.5 pH range that cannot raise good soybean crops but can raise certain grass species for migrating buffalo.

From no stand of soybeans to marginal stands the problem is often referred to as the Platte Valley Yellows or more commonly Iron Chlorosis.

Nutrients must be applied to raise soybeans in high pH soils that have accumulated salts and high nitrate.
Iron Chlorosis, A great problem for soil scientists to solve.

How to use Exactrix Mustang TAPPKTS &Micros, low CV uniform application with Ferrilene to solve this problem?

Approved techniques time proven by Exactrix, Producers, Helena Chemical…and KSU investigators with the help of TKI.

The Soybean Iron Chlorosis Territory Is:
Western Nebraska.
Western Kansas.
All of Colorado.
The River Valleys of Nebraska.
Oklahoma Panhandle.
80% of Texas.
The Red River Valley of the North.
North Dakota and South Dakota.

The most dramatic fertilizer response ever observed or reported in the last 50 years comes from Ferrilene®.

Thanks to Exactrix, Mustang Openers, TAPPKTS, Micros and precision Ferrilene® placement.

In combination with high quality soybean seed from DeKalb®.

General improvements in VRT-Site Specific Application.

Development of the Exactrix® Tri-flow splitter to release the critical penta-chelated Iron, Ferrilene® in the seedling emergence root zone.

The improvements are so dramatic that 20 to 30 million acres of rotational soybeans can be added to land.

Significant results are also being observed with Corn and Milo.

Here is a good example at 2,800 elevation in SW Kansas. 

Exactrix Mustang P-51 C, Binary Banding with P and T bands makes this TAPPKTS technique work to the maximum level of performance.

Check out this recent discovery after years of oversight and planning. It will enhance your bottom line West of the Missouri River.

The technique with add 20 million to 30 million acres to the soybean rotation and at very economical rates.
