Two methods of
fertilizing winter wheat are now possible by side dressing bands of
TAPPS into growing wheat roots….Side dressing winter wheat that is
established or pre-planting banding for a winter wheat
crop….producers average minimum 10% greater yield potential
increases applying uniform TAPPS into growing crops.
Input costs are maximized and the net margin in wheat increases
$30 to $50 more per acre.
In fact, a
3,500 acre farm in North Central Kansas raising Winter Wheat, Milo,
Corn and Soybeans will produce $120,000 more net income per acre with
Exactrix TAPPS and Mustang Openers.
