Exactrix Plots a Solution.
Thio-sul® gets a little more, about 11 bushels.

It takes Less to Raise More.


A note to Rick Engelmeyer at Beemer, NE following some top yields as high as 292 bushel average for his brother.
You can improve your NH3 only application by adding a second product. Place your bet on Thio-sul® with micros.

Addition of
Thio-sul® at 7 gallons per acre is about 20 lbs. of Sulfur. This could be a real nutrient need in a manure rotation using soybeans and applying 140 lbs. of N to raise 275 bushel corn, you may finally be able to break the 300 bushel per acre average mark with TATS or Tri-ammonium Thio-Sulfate or Thiosul® and micros.

These plots were very good (Low LSD at 2.5 acres each, 32 total) at York, Kevin Medow, and deserve your attention, 11.0 bushels per acre. With DCD added, 14.4 bushels per acre. The DCD is not worth it as there a was dollar swap at $15 cost. You could try a $5.00 rate of DCD and see where that goes.

You can also try
KTS®, Potassium Thio-Sulfate, but I think low cost Thio-Sul® is best, 7 gallons is about $15. That should get you $38.50 per acre more gross at $3.50 and an additional net $23.50. It is a very low risk adventure. You should pay for the equipment with the first crop.

You can also add a metals package,
Manganese for sure and a low cost, Ammoniated Zinc and get the punch of micros that the manure may not have due to lack of uniformity of application with manure and tillage.

Combining Exactrix NH3 in Liquid streaming flows of liquid state plant nutrients at high pressures assures high yields.

TAPPS is Tri-ammonium Poly Phosphate Sulfate, TATS is Tri-ammonium Thio-Sulfate.

Streaming flows are well published and discovered by the Tennessee Valley Authority in the 60’s.

Exactrix® maintains the 1% CV, high uniformity of application using Mass Flow meters.

September/October/November 1974. Yes Sir, 43 years ago.

  • No-tillage had a great start a Palouse, Washington in the fall of 1973.

  • No-till was painfully difficult for fertilizer dealers. They needed tillage to make their shank application system work.

  • Not well understood by the “Plow Boys” but they wanted to listen. 

  • No-till was embraced by producers that had big acres and wanted an improved margin.

  • It was an economic phenomena that made farming fun again.

  • No-tillage remains the only system embraced at the University level.

  • No-tillage will eventually allow soils to improve across the US.

  • No-tillage is the only solution in Canada. They are out of dirt.

  • Argentina is 80% No-tillage with 43 drill and planter manufactures for No-tillage. They are out of federal money.

  • Only the best play,(Top 20%) in the continuous No-tillage gaming plan. Simply stated “More Net Dollars on Bigger Acres.

  • Small farmers get bigger fast with No-tillage.

Winter Canola, The Money Making Cover Crop. Out-competes all other crops in rotation.

  • Winter Canola can reduce the surplus of corn and wheat economically for your crop production budget.

  • Dairy farmers call ahead reserving Canola Crush. It always preferred in the feed ration.

  • High demand in Bio-diesel mix.

  • Large International marketing effort. Mexico is a consumer. World market data indicates it is the 4th largest crop.

  • It can clean up grassy weed infested soils.

  • It is a good crop for nematode suppression.

  • It holds soils in place, Winter wheat erosion problems go away with SRS in the row of Hybrid Winter Canola.

  • It outcompetes winter wheat every time. Winter Canola is a silver bullet for many producers.

  • Producers get the genetic punch from Europe with hybridization and better potential in tough conditions.

  • Rubisco offers consulting, Exactrix backs the crop with advance technology like SRS and Tri-Flow Injection.

  • ADM will market for your productions in Texas, Kansas, Nebraska and Colorado.


Winter Canola Roots go deep, Harvest Nitrate and suppress nematodes. Higher corn and winter wheat yields always follow Winter Canola. Winter Canola is the ultimate cover crop because it makes money in Kansas conditions.

Large Plots proved out in irrigated soybeans and dryland soybeans that Milo, Corn, Soybeans and especially Winter Canola can benefit.

  • SRS Depletes the Abscisic Acid (dormancy hormone) that delays germination.
  • A good flush of H20 at 50 to 75 gallons per acre on 30 inch centers starts the plant immediately with 50% or greater levels of moisture in the germination zone.
  • Also allows difficult OM levels to be overcome on clay and sandy soils where the moisture line will not meet.
  • SRS flow can also be enhanced with MGPA, Zinc Sulfate.
  • These germination enhancing products further break down the Abscisic Acid.
  • Testing documents provide an insight to stronger plants in wet or dry soil conditions.

US farmland price decline 'past the worst', central bankers say.

News 10 Nov 2017
by Mike Verdin 

Central bankers unveiled hopes that at least the worst was over for the US farmland market, despite continuing worries over farm incomes – and a cut in funds for ag lending in the Corn Belt for the first time since 2006.

The US Federal Reserve’s Chicago bank, which covers an area encompassing top Corn Belt growing states Illinois, Indiana and Iowa, said that regional land prices were unchanged for the July-to-September period, extending a period of flat performance.

“The district did not experience a year-over-year decrease or increase in its agricultural land values greater than 1% in the past four quarters,” Chicago Fed senior business economist David Oppedahl said, adding that “such relative stability in farmland values had not occurred, since 1970”.

Further south, the St Louis Fed, which covers states such as Arkansas and Mississippi, up to southern Corn Belt areas, said that values of “quality” farmland rose 1.1% - on a year-on-year basis – in the July-to-September period, while those of ranchland and pastureland gained 4%. 

‘Longest since 1980s’
And while prices fell in the central Plains - particularly important as wheat growing and cattle ranching area - by 3% for non-irrigated cropland and 6% for irrigated plots, this represented a slowdown in the pace of decline, which was termed “modest” by the Fed’s Kansas City bank.

Indeed, the bank highlighted that the “duration of the recent downturn in cropland values has approached that of the 1980s”, the last time US farm prices suffered a notable recession, although “the magnitudes of recent [price] declines have yet to approach the magnitudes of the 1980s”.

Then the pace of year-on-year price decline topped 20% at its peak, in 1985.

Fund squeeze
The relative slowdown in the deterioration reading, drawn from surveys of lenders, came despite a continued deterioration in farm incomes, a trend which the St Louis Fed said had now continued unbroken since early 2014, and which the Kansas City Fed had begun in its district in 2013.

“A majority of bankers reported that farm income was lower than a year ago, but that the pace of the decline was less significant than recent quarters,” the Kansas City Fed said.

The sector’s woes have been reflected in lower rates of loans allocated by banks to agriculture, with all three banks reporting a net decrease.

In Chicago, Mr Oppedahl said that “for the first time since the third quarter of 2006, the availability of funds for lending by agricultural banks was lower relative to a year earlier”.

‘Notably weaker demand’
Indeed, Mr Oppedahl added that Corn Belt lenders are forecasting “notably weaker demand by farmers to acquire farmland this fall and winter compared with a year ago”.

However, most bankers forecast stable prices, he said, adding that “a fairly tight supply of available properties for sale may contribute to the continued stability of farmland values”.

The St Louis Fed reported some expectation of a decline in “quality” farmland prices short-term, but a flat market for ranchland and pastureland.

Values in the Plains, meanwhile, “were expected to decline further in the coming months”, the Kansas City Fed said, but added that “a larger share of bankers reported some improvement in the region’s agricultural economy.

“Going forward, agricultural economic conditions are still expected to remain subdued and financial stress in the farm sector may intensify further, but the sharp transition of recent years appears to be lessening.”
