It Works Every Time.

 

Looking back is a pleasure in Sub-Surface Drip Irrigation Corn on Corn.  

An excellent video. https://vimeo.com/bandbvideo/review/162428756/c562a9070d 

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.  Optional blades are available at ½ x 25 inch and up to ½ x 26.5 with the Mustang P-51CUE.  

Furthermore GPS auto steerage is critical because you cannot see your mark.   

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 streaming flow. 

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 NH3
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 mph.

Finally, your compaction is very low with track tractors and track carts…you 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 spacing.  

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 No-till.  

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 Ogallala. 

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 volunteering back.

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.  


Listen to that Detroit Diesel Roar..
We've come a long way, Baby!

Seminar Speakers:

9:00 AM
Dr. Bert Bock,
TKI, Nutrient Management Expert. Testing reconfirms that Exactrix TAPPS is as good or better then N-Serve for boosting yield. Bert is a former Scientist with the TVA, Tennessee Valley Authority. Bert was educated at KSU and the University of Nebraska. He has traveled the US as a consultant for improved and advanced use of nutrients.

 

 

 

9:45 AM
Logan McCurry,
Crop Quest, Consultant, VRT expert. Explains two years of VRT application in center pivot production using Exactrix TAPPS and Mustang openers. Logan spends a good portion of his time consulting for Joel McClure a Hugoton, KS. Crop Quest’s Jason Hooper also helps with the technical interpretation of the Yield Maps and design of the zones for McClure.

Logan can report the actual net dollar values for each management zone. Exactrix uniformity of application in TAPPS has reduced N use to .6 to .7 lbs of N per bushel produced.

 

 

10:20 AM Break

10:30 AM
Ben McClure,
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, strip till.

 

11:15 AM
Guy J Swanson,
Exactrix Global Systems, TAPPKTS plus micros and DCD, Binary Banding at 7.5 inch depth. Improved NPKS efficiency for Mustang openers. Soybeans can now be fertilized. Water Injection and nutrient management for Winter Canola production in 30 inch and 40 inch seed row singulation. Place 5 small but significant bets on Winter Canola and get a consistent quick maturity crop with much better returns than winter wheat or soybeans.

 

 

Noon: Lunch

1:15 PM
Mike Stamm,
KSU, Plant Breeder, Winter Canola. Mike is a Winter Canola breeder at KSU and is focused on the Great Plains. His variety Riley is well accepted. He is knowledgeable on the needs of how producers can establish the crop. He has developed strategies for best winter survival.
Mike also is familiar with growth regulators and their development. Kansas State has a Winter Canola priority and does not offer spring Canola. Acreages have increased significantly in the fall seeding of the 2017 crop.
