Nutrient Pricing Coming Down in Kansas...Thio-Sul® drives Fall Banding in testing. Cost of production is dropping with commercial fertilizer.

Wherever you go in Kansas, producers know about Exactrix TAPPS and TAPPKTS. 

Exactrix always delivers 12% more net margin over any other approach in cropping of Milo, Corn, Wheat and Cotton. 
 
The production margin is always changing and close margins require attention to detail.  Keeping NH3 in the production line up brings a lot more money to the bottom line, no matter if the commodity is priced at a close margin or a large margin.  More money to the bottom line always results with TAPPS and TAPPKTS.  NH3 application timely and uniformly can save millions of dollars over a farming career.

“Exactrix Owners Have More Net Margin”
Between $72 to $96 per acre more net income under center pivots. Between $30 to $55 advantage in dryland production.

Following more testing in 2015 Thio-Sul® performs very well and is a good nitrogen stabilizer with sulfur application inclusive.

Nitrogen Stabilization Review: Fall banding in central Nebraska wet conditions is successful in the Corn/Soybean rotation with Thio-Sul®.  For the past seven years at Utica, Nebraska Exactrix TAPPS has produced outstanding yields (250 to 270 bu/A) with Fall Banding.    This is an area of Nebraska where the problem of nitrate leaching is critically reviewed each production season. More information to follow Dec. 7, 2015 at Lincoln, Nebraska, Exactrix Nutrient Management Meeting.

The technology-based producers are able to move ahead using Exactrix technology to maximize the margin. 

As the market rises or falls
, the producer can go to work fall banding nutrients. NH3 remains viable for fall banding in critical watersheds with Thio-Sul® stabilized TAPPS.  

Exactrix owners already know they have a 12% competitive advantage, and are always able to compete as the low cost producer with Exactrix super accurate (1%CV) NH3 application with Phosphate, Sulfur and Potassium.  Low cost ammoniated Zinc also adds additional advantage with 10-34-0. 

Put your borrowed money on the line where it does the most good.   TAPPS explained.

Use a band of TAPPS and TAPPKTS to get to returns from Exactrix Process Management of Nutrients.  Using Thio-Sul® 12-0-0-26S assures ammonic nitrogen is available to the growing crop fall banded or spring banded pre-plant.  

Only the skilled and focused producers need apply for the job of making money as market finds new economic stability.    

Less is a Lot More. Low cost, high analysis Anhydrous Ammonia leads the way with a 125% to 160% per pound of N advantage over solution 28-0-0, 32-0-0 at Elkhart, KS. 

Producers can drive nutrient costs way down by using less and getting more. Your good neighbor should know that Exactrix owners have at least 50% less nutrient input with Exactrix TAPPS and TAPPKTS using low cost NH3.

Liquid streaming flow of NH3 produces high crop availability with even uniform streams of lineal bands of TAPPS. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQ2iH_Pe2rE&hd=1 

 

As Ag Economist Ben McClure says,  “It is always fun to talk about big yields, but it is net dollars that count.” 

 

Banding deeper to 6 inch depth improves nutrient efficiency long term and in all weather conditions,
dry or wet Rotational Band Loading is best.

Corn at $3.50 to $4.00 means profit with Exactrix, and good old NH3 on the job at reduced rates. 
Raising 270 bushel per acre irrigated corn with TAPPKTS,
140 pounds N as NH3 (175 total N), 25 pounds P, 15 pounds K,
 15 pounds S, 2 pounds Zinc, and no more than 11% to 12% of the gross income.   Humic and Folic acid can be considered.

In North America corn, wheat and cotton can be produced more economically than any other parts of the world because of NH3 is directly applied. Thus, land values are improved when the producer's net margin is improved.  Only good old NH3 can reduce risk and is guaranteed analysis at 82% N. The technical advantage is $30 to $40 per acre due to low cost handling and banding. Top dressing fertilizers reduces efficiency of Nitrogen and Phosphate, and should never be top dressed for best economic results. Banding accurately at high speed with No-tillage produces the best results. Strip-till works and outcompetes the tillage system in almost all cases due to NH3 in the deep band.

Producers that have Exactrix TAPPS and TAPPKTS know how to make money.   
Soil building philosophies with top dressed fertilizer have never made economic sense for the producer. Liquid streaming flows of balanced nutrients always outperform dry fertilizer applications.  Now, producers can apply Fluid KTS in the band of TAPPKTS with triple super ammonization with low cost NH3. 

Good fertilizer dealer organizations add value supplying materials that enhance nutrient performance. Fluid fertilizer allow bands to go deeper with very low soil disturbance and less horsepower required.

Get No-tillage drought tolerance with bands much deeper at the 6 inch depth. Deeper bands work very well under center pivot irrigation. Winter wheat, dryland cropping has about 20% more yield punch with Exactrix TAPPS banded.

Side Dressing Winter Wheat just like corn, can produce a good net return. Exactrix owners have found this to be a yield enhancing practice in Kansas conditions for over 10 years. Make more bushels with less inputs. Banding into growing wheat reduces nutrient costs, allows timing based on rainfall and raises yield potential. Banding of established winter wheat can occur in November or February.

Producers can make above average returns utilizing advanced technology of Exactrix TAPPS and Mustang Openers.

Producers can make money with $3.50 to $4.00 per bushel corn by utilizing advanced Exactrix technology.  

Another good way that No-till producers can make improved economic gains is to park the floater rigs. Advance the fertilizer efficiency with stabilization of liquid injection of NH3.  "The era of soil building with dry fertilizer is gone. It never did make producer economic sense for the close margin producer." GJS.  

Exactrix owners can go with the highest quality fluid fertilizer making TAPPS and TAPPKTS at much lower rates with 200% more crop available P, and a gigantic increase in K efficiency with TAPPKTS; Ammonium Poly Phosphate, 10-34-0, Thio-Sul® Ammonium Thio-Sulfate, 12-0-0-26S, Potassium Thio-Sulfate 0-0-25-17S, 82-0-0-Exactrix, High Pressure Anhydrous Ammonia. http://cropvitality.com/ provides more information about Thio-Sul®.

Ammonia forces the producers to seal and band deep. The economic driver is NH3 banded deep, and formulated TAPPS and TAPPKTS. 

Exactrix offers several ways to band with the Deere, Case and Bourgault openers. Mustang openers are also great for banding in moist soil conditions. Exactrix P-51 openers are the lowest soil disturbance openers available. 

Producers can also consider Exactrix single disc banding in tillage systems. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gwf3Xva7HF8


Exactrix TAPPS is time proven in Kansas for 10 years, at locations like Hugoton, Elkhart, Garden City, Dodge City, Scott City, Goodland, Sharon Springs, Quinter, Colby, Russell, Atwood, Hoxie, Plains, Liberal, Ingalls, Abilene, Smith Center, Osborne, Clay Center, Lyons, Neosho Rapids, Wamego, and Copeland.

Nebraska producers, with Mustang openers, produce good yields, with up to 50% less input cost for commercial fertilizer in a No-tillage system. The Case 930 Tool Bar at 30 feet is set up with Mustang P51C openers on 15 inch centers, 1,000 gallons of Liquid and 2,000 gallons of NH3 trailed.

The cost is about $25 per acre in a custom operation.
