KCL is not crop
effective at Lyons, KS. Nor in most Nebraska conditions. The
chloride could actually be toxic in heavy applications. High

with 15 gallons of KTS.

carried out No till Mustard Fumigation and testing at Lyons in 2014,
with good results in full pivot size plots.
Pacific Gold testing in 2014 showed giant increases in corn
production. The test plots were not official or by STEEP standards.

application is important to improve Glucosinolate production along
with nitrogen to make amino acids. TAPPS and TAPPKS application can
also be considered.
fumigant crop can also be irrigated to improve the stands. Seed cost
is about $1.00 per lb. The crop is normally seeded at 5 lbs. per
acre. The water cost can be as high as $10.00 per acre. The nutrient
cost should be around $20 to $30 per acre using NH3 and Thio-sul®.
Costs of $5.00 to as high $55.00 per acre are considered acceptable,
since the results from last year showed an additional $400 to $500
per acre of income. Gigantic yield increases were observed due to
suppression of nematodes using Pacific Gold Mustard.

The 30 inch
strips will be planted to soybeans by

Gold mustard and RR soybeans will be applied with Roundup® in about
2 weeks after the Pacific Gold mustard is fully bolted. Soybeans
are more light sensitive than corn from the competitive effect.
In 2014 the No-tillage
Pacific Gold fumigant mustard produced a very significant yield
boost in corn production. The full pivot test produced a very big
jump in yield as compared to previous corn crops.
Lost Yield Potential.
The pivot tested has consistently lost or declined in yield from
1996 in a corn soybean rotation. The previous corn crop had yielded
only 117 bushels per acre due to nematodes. Crop Quest consultant,
Jon French has been doing the testing for nematodes.
Using March seeded
Pacific Gold Fumigant Mustard,
the nematode population can be reduced for the following corn crop
In fact, the nematode
problem is so significant that every opportunity must be made to
fumigate starting in March, or even if the crop is hailed out.
Pacific Gold Mustard will work very well on hailed out pivots.
The Pacific Gold
mustard was planted about March 3, 2015
at 10 lbs.
The field was strip tilled in late April in preparation for corn or
soybean, in this case soybean.
Some strip tilled fields are also prepared for corn and Exactrix
