Drive Seed Costs Down with a Yield Jump.
Seed Row Saturation, The SRS Challenge.
Seed Row Saturation has improved with
Exactrix SRS systems.
SRS takes about $40,000 to $50,000 of equipment investment to
produce a good stand in winter Canola, Soybeans, Sunflowers, Milo
Reduce your seed costs, and seed to a
uniform stand population with Winter Canola and Soybeans.
A fantastic payoff adding up $100 to $250 per acre in winter Canola.
About 7.5% more yield in Soybeans dryland.
A potential great payoff with Corn and Milo,
anytime the seed is expensive consider SRS.
Up to 108 gallons per minute for 120 foot planters.
Looking Glass Manifolds and low hydraulic flow is now possible
Nominal Reports and Exactrix Techniques, at less than 2.5 to 3
gallons hydraulic flow per minute at 40 feet.
Better stands with SRS, Deere 1790.
Cost to own and apply water at 50 gallons per acre.
About $5.00 to $6.50 per acre.
Note: SRS is a time proven process promoted with Yielder
Drills in the 80’s to establish Dwarf Essex.
SRS changes the potential for a 90% to 98% stand in CRP seedings and
winter crops like Canola.
Don’t settle for a stand less than 90%. Walk out the field knowing
your expensive seed has a good start.
SRS is a for sure bet with expensive seed.
Place your bets with SRS and Winter Canola, Soybeans,
Sunflowers, and even Corn and Milo.
Note: SRS Makes CRP takeout highly effective.
Seed deeper with
SRS, there is more seedling vigor. Now you can use an expensive
hybrid Canola at reduced seed rate.
germination moisture line above the seed, not below the seed.”
Mort said so.
A poor stand of irrigated spring canola in a tillage system with a
Deere 1790 planter is tough on the pocket book.
SRS combined flow
for 30 inch spacing is 50 gallons per acre combined with MGPA. MGPA
can be added to reduce crusting in the seed row area. The
technique is ideal for sugar beet establishment.
Spring crops respond to SRS.
Avoid or reduce the tillage to get best results, keep the pivot
water off the emerging plant.
A poor No-tillage
Chem-fallow stand of winter canola with a Deere Twin Row planter
will get your attention.
There is no
way to fix stupid when you have an SRS choice with expensive seed.
Dry seed row
planting in Chem-fallow is now a solvable management problem.
Double Crop Soybeans are viable with even and uniform seed row only
germination in adequate moist summer soil conditions.
Weed control is better with SRS technology by favoring the crop and
starving the weeds of moisture.
Like the steeping process of malting barley.
The SRS flushes
the Abscisic Acid hormone.
This flush is
used to break the dormancy of the seed.
The result is
more seedling vigor.
Seed Row Saturation, SRS improves stands of Winter Canola in the
summer and Soybeans in the spring in dryland or even double crop.
In late June, or early July:
“Get it up fast

SRS is, especially powerful,

No-nutrients are applied with the strip till bar. Strip till
clearance appears to be a viable program to keep light in the row

Set the canola crown at the surface with strip till.
No-till can be used on dryland typical low residue. Strip

Chemfallow is successful in No-till. Clearing the row area is
important even in Chemfallow with decomposed residue.
No-till winter canola must allow light to penetrate to the
plant with no residue over the seed row area.
Place no nutrients other than MGPA in row with SRS at 50 gpm,
MGPA is used for crusting.

Start the winter Canola with pre-irrigation, no post
