Park the Planter.

An Award Winning Scientists Says, ”Park The Planter”.

What are you talking about, Willis?

Winner of Two National Awards confirms, Park the Planter, …Why. 

  • Communication of the facts.
  • You may not like what you are going to hear, this is a management problem.



An Exactrix owner….A Deere Planted winter Canola stand at Garden City, KS.  Not a top yielding scenario and no weed control options.  

A give up moment, this Winter Canola crop requires management.  

An Exactrix Owner with a 20 million dollar, livestock and cropping enterprise.  Here is a 12,000 acre producer that owns three 1790 planters with experienced operators, a Total of 80 years of experience with planters. 

Planting Canola Consistently with Persistence is not possible with a 30 inch planter at St. John Washington, in an intermediate rainfall, unless your machinery has the capability for 65 gallons per acre of $5 per acre water, in the row. 

An investment of $5.00 per acre will produce a 95% to 99% stand in four days.  

Here is a Chemfallow result with a planter without SRS. 

No planters…SRS is required…..Do not attempt winter canola planted without SRS….you will have a failure…. 

Remember with a planter you must have a 95% stand in 4 days. 

You must stick with the 1890 drill by raising your seed rate to 300,000 per acre and accepting less. 

With a Drill You must accept a lower yield and poor weed control on hilltops, slopes and weedy areas of the field.



High Quality Seed at Risk of poor management.

  • At 2 days….30 to 48 hours….and in 4 days the manager will have emergence with a Water Dike….a Fissure Dike connection to life and a close to perfect stand.
  • What is a Water Dike? What is a Fissure Dike?

Growing weeds is not an option.

A pivot application of H2O will not help in spring Canola.  
Why own a planter with a stand like this.



Lots of water at 3,800 feet and still the producer cannot get a stand.  

  • A pivot will not help in winter canola. Irrigated producers know that you should never irrigate a crop up.
  • Every seed in every row must come together in a march to life. No stragglers. Stragglers become weeds.
  • Excess water brings on all weeds everywhere in the field.
  • SRS is a form of weed control. Organic farmers so note.
  • You must have 95% to 99% emergence in 4 days….a pivot cannot do that.
  • Mormon Farmers in Southern Idaho at 5,000 feet know that too….”never irrigate a crop up.”



In Northern Idaho and Washington State  Plant Breeders want to know how to get the top yields.   

  • The initial stand is everything on field wide basis in rolling slopes and tiled out super saturated soils whereby Abscisic acid is the problem  
  • Winter Canola is different as newborn life must come together in a 95% emergence in 4 days for top yields planting into highly variable soils.
  • Harvest is 12 months away and the project takes two years to raise the crop. You must pay attention as the risk is high and the knowledge is low.
  • Winter Canola Education of planting is non-existence in Cooperative Extension.
  • Planting must occur on hot July days with lots of wind….
  • This landscape and weather scenario is ideal for No-till and Seed Row Saturation, SRS.

SRS meets or exceeds expectations.
