Great Plains Technology Report.  

Big news on the  Case 2150 with all precision planting features 16 row, 30 inch rows.
Rick Engelmeyer at Beemer Nebraska. 



A Case 2150 at 40 feet with 16 rows with precision planting equipment has a cost of $250,000.  

The machine runs well. The controller takes a new memory chip every 30 acres.



A Mustang Exactrix tool bar is the real player for moving money to the bottom line, with features that include:

·         A lift assist frame work capable of 15,000 to 18,000 lbs. at the rear tandems and 20,000 at the tractor 2 point.

·         Active frame hydraulics with positive down pressure at the wing sections with the lift smile feature in the corners.

·         Hydraulic NH3 trailer winch, 25,000 lbs.  

·         Two center ballast tanks to aid in weight transfer in two sizes.  

·         A TAPPS, Exactrix Tool bar at 40 feet on 15 inch band centers with 2KC series 3 Mass Flow system.

·         A 2KM series 3 Mass Flow system with sparging reflow blender for liquids.

·         A 2KR blender for building special blends with micros or biologicals.

·         A power machine which weighing in at 34,500 lbs. at $375,000.

So which machine has the priority? 

Exactrix owners make a lot more money.  

Exactrix TAPPS Formulators outcompete a new planter every time, at $60 to $150 per acre advantage over any other system approach. 

Set the Priority, get the nutrients right for years to come, and everything else will come. That is what Rick Engelmeyer did.
