It Works Every Time.
Looking back is a pleasure in Sub-Surface Drip Irrigation Corn on
As an operator, as a producer, as a machine and system developer.
Can you imagine the deeply productive feeling of a 600
horsepower tractor with belted tracks pulling 61.25 feet Mustang
Tool bar at 8 mph with 15 inch band centers?
Each acre requiring .485 gallons of diesel fuel banding 7 to 8
inches in depth producing a No-tillage seedbed.
The openers are Exactrix Mustang P-51C with 3/8 x 24 inch diameter
blades to band nutrients into the deck 7 to 8 inches.
Deeper may be better.
are available at ½ x 25 inch and up to ½ x 26.5 with the Mustang
Furthermore GPS auto steerage is critical because you cannot see
Your high net return tool is meeting or exceeding all expectations
for a no-tillage seed bed for the row cleaning, twin row, Deere 15
inch No-till planter.
For highest irrigated corn yields crystallized TAPPS
or TAPPKTS bands of nutrients are vermiculated in a vertical column
to 7 to 8 inches in depth.
You know after 3 years of use that Exactrix TAPPS
allows high economic yields with less invested. Now
you know that TAPPS is an Acid/Base reaction of 1% uniformity in a
You the operator understands….Understanding
that the Mustang P-51C cutting blade repairs are needed about every
20,000 to 25,000 acres.
That the actual operating cost is about $1.25 to $1.65 per acre.
Your tool is ready to band when the conditions are tough but right.
Your machine runs cheap by almost 1/3 less than 30 inch machines and
therefore banding is powerful on 15 inch centers.
Your 265 psi, NH3 tanks have two inch Exactrix Grate Couplings for
bottom outlet valves and this allows the productive machine to apply
at 0 degrees F.
The liquid tanks will operate to 15 degrees F and uniformity remains
the same in all temperature and pressure ranges.
As the producer your irrigated crop production budget is laid out at
lowest possible risk with nutrients……and you have $60 to $150 more
net income per acre, a lot more than any other approach.
The application is being made at 1% CV of application….that
means only 1 lb of nutrient is not crop useable in 100 lbs. applied.
That means VRT, Site Specific is possible due to the Exactrix
Uniformity producing yields in Zone 1 to over 300 bushels per acre.
Saving $40 per acre in Zone 4 and producing higher yields.
You can now farm the five little fields in the big field and apply
on target with 1% of rate and 1% CV in three seconds or less at 8
Finally, your compaction is very low with track tractors and track
can run in difficult conditions without damaging the soil
with 9,565 square inches of flotation, 8 axles
supporting a diminishing load.
You need to take your lunch bucket. Your 44,854 lb. diminishing load
is 4,000 gallons of NH3 and 2,600 gallons of Poly Phosphate and
Thio-sul®Sulfur with Zinc and Copper. You can use Potassium if need
be with a third metering system.
The track cart NH3 and liquid tanks can be filled fast if required.
Your rates of application often allow an entire quarter section corn
on corn pivot (127 acres) to be applied with one fill-up midway. A
full pivot every 2.5 to 3 hours at irrigated corn rates.
The machine will fold in about 1 minute and 5 seconds and next field
is accessible at roading width of about 17 feet.
The tool bar design folds narrow for the street and is
flexible in 5 sections and folds in 7 sections.
The machine can be increased to 65 feet or reduced to 51 feet in
width and can be set up in 15 inch, 20 inch and 30 inch band
The 6 x 6 reliable frame was designed and developed by DMI of
Goodfield, IL to meet the exclusive high speed demands of the
Exactrix Mustang opener banding to 7 to 8 inch depths.
Deep banding ground speeds up to 12.2 mph are possible when the
machine is maximized at 1.509 acres per minute at 690 horsepower.
It is big and it is effective operating for very low operating and
investment costs on 12,000 acres of 6 to 8 different crops and
double crop, perennials and biennials .
Every month of the year the Mustang Tool Bar is operating in
Mustang Tool Bars….have Maximum flexibility and out compete every
other approach in nutrient management.
An ideal No-tillage seedbed.
Bandammonium, TAPPS Mustang banded in March at a 45 degree
angle…track cart and tractor tracks are barley visible at the 45
degree angle to the planting.
There are two seasons for Bandammonium in Alberta, The Sledding
Season and The Tough Sledding Season.
Better stated and proven by producers in SW Kansas with only one
season for nutrient application. Every month of the year works for
Bandammonium in Kansas.
Looking ahead about 25 years as the cost of water increases on the
SDI Exactrix TAPPS banding with Mustangs, Corn on Corn in early
November. TAPPS banded with VRT-Site Specific application at 1% CV.
Double Cropping into green chop Triticale in June at one pivot every
2.5 hours. Headed for pre-plant Milo production in July and
preplant banding for Winter Wheat in August.
Pre-plant banding for Winter Canola in September.
Banding into growing Winter Wheat in October.
Banding into Winter Canola in January.
What the choppers missed…Banding TAPPS at 8 inch depth, right down
the parked pivot towers of the un-chopped Triticale crop.
Mustangs handle lots of residue by banding to the 7 to 8 inch depth
with the swiveling design.
It takes a substantial Case DMI 940 6x 6 tool bar at 61.25 feet to
accomplished the highly reliable delivery of TAPPS nutrients.
Ready for December to February banding of TAPPS. Winter Canola
performs best with Ammonium of TAPPS. Bandammonium produces best
winter survival over solution 32-0-0.
Sandy soil pivot with Triticale residue from green chopping
Ready for winter in early November with growth regulators and
fungicides applied. Nutrients application of high sulfur TAPPS is
planned for dormant application in January.

Kramer Seed Co. Ag Economist.
Explains the economics of Exactrix saving hundreds of thousands of
dollars every year. TAPPS N stabilization works very well. Ben
realized rainstorms of up to 8 inches at several pivot locations on
sandy loam soil. Nutrients were applied prior to planting and
following banding of TAPPS.
He achieved record breaking yields with 150 lbs. of
N as NH3 in TAPPS crystals. One pivot averaged .568 pounds of N per
bushel in VRT, Site Specific TAPPS application on 30 inch centers,
