The high quality certified wheat seed averaged 92 bushels per acre
with 7% damage from hail. The No-till banded application of nutrients
was applied using single disc openers, including the Bourgault MRB-25
with endurance blades.
No-tillage systems were utilized with single disc banding of dedicated
corn production pivots in the previous year.

10 K, 21 S.
At time of seeding, 50% of the nutrients were applied, and 50% were
applied in Mid-February with a single disc tool bar.
The half section center pivot, 322 acre field, averaged 92 bushel per
acre with 7% hail damage. Across the field, the Yield monitor range
was as high as 122 bushels per acre.
This production technique has proven out for 5 years. The improvement
to yields has been at least 10% and up to 30% with certain varieties.
No changes are planned to the fertilizer management program at
Late Fall or early Spring banding produces excellent results since the
nutrients are immediately available to the roots.
Banding of balanced nutrients assures top winter wheat yields at low
cost. Previous top dressing programs never achieved the higher
consistent yields of Exactrix banding uniformity.
Locating the nutrients in the root zone where it does the most good
with uniformity of application and the chemical bonding of TAPPKTS,
has very good economics and much lower cost of production than top
Stabilized Nitrogen and crop available P is located to allow the plant
to produce at much higher levels. Potassium and Zinc also work much
better in a combined band.
