|April 15, 00, West Point, Ne. Greg Kreikemeir is an innovative producer that has implemented the most productive NH3 applicator to date. The applicator is referred to as the X-16. Remember the X-15, it was the first man qualified rocket plane that flew to fringes of outerspace. Maybe you did not know that the X-15 flew on 1,500 gallons of NH3 and 2,000 gallons of LOX. That is correct and it produced up to 500,000 horsepower for 90 seconds. Well this 60 foot wide applicator has challenged the record for applying NH3.|
Greg’s X-16 is rated at 80 gallons per minute or 20,000 Ibs.
per hour. Most NH3 applicators seldom exceed 25 gallons per minute. Some 40 ft airseeders apply as low as 6 gallons per minute. This machine is a money maker in the
custom application business. Greg's
goal is to precision apply on his own 4,500 acre farm and then go to work for his neighbors 10,000 acres this fall.
