The introductory 4015 Yielder® at Lohn, Texas as of May 11, 18 at 7,000 acres with extreme double edge blades.

Pre-Plant Banding, Cotton, Winter Canola and Winter Wheat.

Rainfall patterns can be deceiving at Lohn, Texas. Therefore nutrient TAPPS bands go deep up to 7 to 8 inches when required.

The key note of Crop Availability with Positional Availability_______ Vermiculation of NH3, APP and Thio-sul® drives crop efficiency.

The RTK guidance keeps the planter directly on top of the TAPPS and TAPPKTS bands.

The Exactrix® TAPPS Bands go directly under the planter row or 1 inch to the side of planter rows of Winter Canola and Cotton.  

Operational speed is 9 mph or .7272 acres per minute at 340 hp Magnum Belted Tractor.  

Lance says 380 hp would be just a little better in 4015 mode with a loaded trailer.

The APP/ATS/KTS Liquid and NH3 tank is located on the trailer. Two trailers are able to keep up due to their high nutrient availabilty at low rates and their central location for 9,000 acres.

Liquid ballast and flush tanks provide weight for the center section to be adjusted as per the need of positive down pressure at the cylinders.

Yielder Technology at Lohn, Texas. May. 11, 18

The Exactrix Systems are dual purpose designed for 15 inch row spacing for winter wheat.  Applications are pre-plant or side dress.  

Winter Canola and Cotton are planted on 20 and 40 inch rows with Mustangs set on 20 inch centers.  

These two crops can also be side dressed with adequate rainfall.  

Phosphate efficiecncy is so high with this design that only the crop can use and absorb the placed P.  

The fertilizer is trapped or leveraged to the 20 inch bands. 

Typical nutrients rates in Winter Canola were a total of $18.00 per acre.  

This is a low yielding area….with good net margin returns. Crop Insurance kicks in at 1,000 lbs. per acre.  

Only 3 inches of moisture fell on the growing crop from October to May.  Harvest is on.  

No-tillage is critical to produce top yields and maximum efficiency at Lohn, Texas.


Husker Harvest Days, September 2017

For Corn, The planter and mustang can run together.

The 8 inch depth with uniformity is zonally safe and ideal for immediate nutrient uptake.

 Tri-Ammonium Phosphate Sulfate with Micros eliminates the need for starter fertilizer in most cases.

An NUE Corn Record Set at .5 to .58 lbs. N/Bu produced at Dalhart, Texas.

In the 250 to 270 bushel per acre range. 100 lbs. N to 200 lbs. N as NH3, There Is No Difference in Yield.

Including N from 82-0-0, 10-34-0, 12-0-0-26S and 10-34-0 in row starter. 125 lbs. N total produced top efficiency.

All No-tillage with a manure history.

The previous recommendation from the fertilizer dealer was over 300 lbs. N/A applied with the pivot.

 Millions of dollars of manure  and solution 32-0-0 cannot compete with Exactrix TAPPS and TAPPKTS with micros.

Over $150 per acre stayed in the producers cash position paying for the entire Exactrix system 2 times over in 1 crop year. 3,000 acres irrigated production, $450,000 additional net.

Where do the nutrients come from?   Documents included.  Crop availability went way up.

The abrupt end of tillage, no manure applications and TAPPS is a powerhouse play.

Why can Exactrix owners, producers and agronomists say? “Over any other approach or system, Exactrix delivers $60 to $150per acre more net income in irrigated Corn.” 


The highest volume of Exactrix equipment is in Kansas and Nebraska because the nitrogen is 166% more crop available and the phosphate is 200% more crop available.

TAPPS or Tri-Ammonium Phosphate Sulfate is an 8.5 pH crystal that provides yield punch at a reasonable cost with 1% uniformity of application.

The effectiveness of Phosphate is 200% greater when Exactrix TAPPS is reacted in liquid streaming flows with Anhydrous Ammonia.

Micronutrients are up to 10 times more effective when ammoniated in homogenous bands of Ammonium Poly Phosphate 10-34-0 and Thiosul® 12-0-0-26S. Complete metals package is recommended with Exactrix APP/Thio-Sul/KTS and simple ammoniated micros.

Exactrix irrigated producers in Nebraska and Kansas, Texas and Oklahoma, and the Dakotas expect $60 to $150 more net income per acre with Exactrix TAPPS.

West of the Missouri, there is more continuous Corn and or a Milo rotation (soybeans are reduced) which also drives higher utilization of Exactrix TAPPS using Rotational Band Loading and Making P more efficient with less N required. 

Quite often the rotation can also be changed and single disc openers at high speed can be used.

Here is an Oct. 26, 2016 P and K report in Soybean and Corn Digest as reported by Pioneer.

TAPPKTS appears to be successful in sandy soils of SW Kansas. Thus, Some K as KTS is needed in the SW Kansas.

Outstanding Phosphate Efficiency,

Nothing else competes at 500% more efficient than the next best approach.

Finalized at .14 lbs. P per bushel.

Watch Soil Test P go up in No-tillage and Rotational Band Loading.

In tough weather conditions, wind, a 10 inch snowy cover of a planted crop, early start freezing weather with Pioneer 1197 and 1828. The difficulties of 2017 were expressed in less than 300 bushels per acre.

What about the Phosphate Recommendation for 250 bushel corn or the PUE, Phosphate Use Efficiency.

The Exactrix PUE was set a 35 lbs. P or .14 lbs. P2O5 or Phosphate.

Phosphate as 10-34-0 as 9 gallons total with 3 gallons Thio-Sul®.

There was no positive to response to phosphate placed at 2x and 4x rates. Up to 140 lbs. P did no good.

Testing with the Dalhart Double Down showed no advantage to elevated rates of P, S or N.

Irrigating a cover crop or raising winter wheat under irrigation never competes with irrigated Winter Canola with Mustang TAPPS and TAPPKTS side dressed into the growing crop. Winter Hardiness is greatly improved with Ammonium of TAPPS and TAPPKTS.

Cover crops are secondary in benefit to the rotational advantage and the ultra-cleanup power of Winter Canola with good cash flow.


April 28, 17, Hugoton, Kansas, Hybrid Winter Canola, Rubisco, Hornet, Cover cropping has very little merit when producers can raise a profitable Winter Canola crop that provides 10% and greater yield punch to the following crop.

Extending the rotation up to 3 to 4 years adds soil health and lowers input costs when winter crops can be produced. Cover cropping is not required.

Irrigated and Dryland Great Plains producers have a solution to low commodity prices using Mustang Openers and Planters to raise Winter Canola.

A typical Exactrix Mustang tool bar will accurately lay down bands for the planter in double widths.


Ferrilene® can be injected with Binary Banding to assure early and later season access to chelated iron by corn, soybeans, and milo.

A first real chance to increase soybean yields substantially and fertilize soybeans correctly.

In fact one of the most dramatic changes for want to be Soybean producers on the Great Plains.

The Ferrilene access by the roots is superior over planter applied.

Rhizobia can be placed in the seed row without damage from the Ferrilene.

Ferrilene® is available primarily from Italy and made available by Helena Chemical Company, Scott City, KS.

What out competes N-serve® every time? It is No-tillage with TAPPS and TAPPKTS. It is years of No-tillage at Seward, NE.

Get the facts.

Fall November banding with Thio-sul® and KTS® stabilizing nitrogen in liquid streaming flows at 1% CV.

Micro-nutrients in Exactrix TAPPS and TAPPKTS bands assure anti-biological activity of Nitro-bacteria and Nitro-ammonias.

These two bacteria are in charge of converting positive valence NH
4 to mobile nitrite NO2 and nitrate NO3.

Avoiding nitrite release into the atmosphere is very important. It is about 200 times more technical than CO2.

Exactrix TAPPS and TAPPKTS makes it pretty tough on the non-functional bacterial bloomers by subtracting out a suitable environment in a very tight nutrient TAPPKTS band. A very narrow diffusion zone is the result with Mustang openers.

The Exactrix TAPPS diffusion zone is ¾ inch in width as compared to the old fashioned 6 inch wide pressure reducing NH3 application.

Called the bow tie application which is tough on soil and soil life.  The tillage approach with NH4 is deep and wide. As tested by Dr. John Moraghan at NDSU and reconfirmed with Exactrix Wing Injection.

The power of concentrated nutrients at reduced rates hold the bacterial bloomers at bay delaying their home-life. A  vermiculated band allowing crop roots to penetrate in a dilute zone.  Improved targeting for all crops in rotation.  

Exactrix vermiculated bands assure highest level of nitrogen stability using Thio-Sul®, KTS®, Ammoniated Zinc and Copper Sulfate all of which are reasonably priced to the commodity.

Thio-sul® is the George Blanda of Crop Nutrients. The Grand-daddy of all nitrogen stabilizers when uniformly applied by Exactrix.

Get the exclusive pH shift of Exactrix TAPPS, TAPPKTS band.

These common crop nutrients S, Zn, Cu, Mn are dual and triple purpose and are not overpriced to the cost of side dress like N-serve.

N-serve is tough on machinery and tough on people. Don’t get started with this nasty material, N-serve.

Thio-Sul® and KTS® are much more effective with 1% uniformity and thorough mixing with NH3 forming TAPPS and TAPPKTS.
