Retail Ammonia is typically marked up 33% to 100% above wholesale or as compared to farm storage pricing.

  • Most ammonia sold to Exactrix® owners with storage averaged $169 to $225 per ton in July of 2020.
  • Green Play Ammonia is priced at $100 to $300 per ton with 7 year contracts at 10% over cost. Storage is Critical.
  • Cut Nutrient Costs in Half…..and get the carbon back in the ground and get ready for Zero Carbon Ammonia.


News about TAPPKTS with Trafix Zinc.  

Fall Banding of Corn at 6.5 to 8.5 pH starts November 1 on the Great Plains.  

Fall Banding of Winter Wheat starts July 1 on the Great Plains.  

Winter Cover Cropping and Fall Banding Starts September 1, In center pivot irrigation systems.  

140 lbs. Ammonium, 20 lbs. P, 12 lbs. K, 31 lbs. SO4 and S, 2.1 lbs. Zinc as Tra Fix. 140—20—12--31S plus 2.1Zn.
The calculation should come out at $80.00 per acre.
If it is too high you can call for 8% of the Gross Investment in NPKS+Zn. 

You can raise a good crop with low risk with not as much invested. Less is Always More. 

Most Exactrix® owners spend 8% to 12% of the gross income for nutrients and never going above 12%.
A typical budget is $80 per acre at current prices in irrigation.

Sandy Loam Soils, Low CEC of the Arkansas flood plain raise KTS to 10 gallons and reduce ATS to 4 gallons.

Producers can reduce cost of nutrients by getting more efficient with TAPPKTS plus Tra-Fix Zn.

  1. Buy nutrients right with storage. Buy Ammonia in summer months, Buy 10-34-0 within 30 days of manufacture. KTS stores well to very low temperatures, ATS crystallizes between 32-38 F. 
  2. Exactrix® applies 166% more crop available N, Set Controller at 122 lbs. N as NH3.
  3. Exactrix® applies 200% to 300% more crop available P as 10-34-0. Set the controller at 20 lbs. P bringing 9 lbs. N from 5 gallons APP.
  4. Exactrix® outperforms top dressed KCL by up to 10 times, Chloride is not required,  Set the controller at 12K bringing 8S from 4 gallons KTS.
  5. Exactrix® delivers nitrogen stabilizing sulfur, micro nutrients free up, SO4 and is S critical to the plant and no longer free, Set the controller at 23S bringing 9 lbs. N or at 8 gallons Thio-Sul®.
  6. Exactrix® delivers Trafix Zinc at 1 to 2 gallon to drive yeast production and to improve nitrogen stabilization.  1.05 to 2.1 lb. zinc with .5 to 1 lb. S Asset Technology. 
  7. Apply 19.37 GPA of Ammonia, Apply 19 gallons per acre of Liquid NPKS+Zn.  You will have a good economical crop with Exactrix High Pressure 1% CV application.

Trafix Zinc operates like a Chelate at a much lower cost. Helena is the supplier.
A most important part of the story is Trafix Zn blends and stores well with liquid blends with APP.
Trafix Zinc has Asset Technology, 4.5 S and 10 Zinc. 10.5 lbs. per gallon.
1.05 lbs. Zinc per gallon. .47 lbs. S per gallon.  

Note 2:
For every 1 lb. of N applied 1.7 lbs. of Agriculture, high quality Lime must be added back.
Lime and Gypsum applications can be simultaneous.
Both materials work  best in No-till with a finest grind and applied as a fluid.  

Note 3:
Variable Rate Site Specific applications with Exactrix are at 1% CV in liquid streaming flows. Liquid NH3 at 300 psi  makes nitrogen 166% more crop available and PKSZn up to 300% more crop available.  

Discoveries made in dual application of N and P
 using Yielder Drills and Aqua Ammonia.




Crystalline TAPPS


Binary Banding 22.5/7.5, 5 section,  4515 Exactrix Mustang Positive Down pressure TC Tool Bar and the Yielder 2900 Steering Track Cart goes to work at GSF, The NC+ Breeder of Channel Seed Corn.  Operating with a Deere 9520 Row Crop Quad at Shelton, NE, May 16, 2019. Difficult and wet conditions prove that tracks really work in No-till.

Check out Binary Banding the massive but delicate process of applying nutrients at 1% CV in deep bands.

Mustang Exactrix Banding Nutrients at 9.5 mph in Binary Banding Mode of 22.5 x 7.5, splitting soybean and corn rows in No-till.

Allowing the 60 foot 24/30 corn planter to plant directly on top of the Exactrix TAPPKTS Band the same day by banding to 7 to 8 inch depths.  

Here is why nutrients are combined with root pattern geometry to drive yields up another notch. Achieving record field wide averages using VRT application at 1% CV. The machine and the expert management lifts yield expectations to the 300 bushel per acre range in commercial corn production.

Nominal increases over askew Exactrix Mustang will average between 5 and 10% above previous yield levels in the 270 bushel to 290 bushel per acre range for commercial corn. Micro nutrients and efficient utilization of KTS is possible with a third product 2KR Blender with TAPPKTS bands directly under and along-side each corn row.

Seed corn production for Channel dealers using high quality inputs of Exactrix TAPPKTS with Micros. The Exactrix Binary Bands brings out the best in seed quality with power packing of nutrients into the seed with balance nutrition in tough weather conditions.

Power Packing of Seed is a well-established practice utilized in Washington State by the Crop Improvement Association for raising high quality seed on nutrient packed potato soils.

Discoveries made in dual application of N and P using Yielder Drills and Aqua Ammonia.

Since 1986 and earlier it has been known that fertilizer nutrient deep bands can be too concentrated with Ammonium when dual placing P, K and S….discoveries were made with Aqua ammonia using Yielder® No-till Drills in the PNW.  

Why are 24 inch and or 30 single bands of crop nutrients non-desirable and difficult  to justify when dual placing N as NH3 and P? 

Exactrix testing indicates that a 15 inch band has the equivalent of 70 pounds of N as NH3 as compared to 140 pounds of N as NH3 on 30 inch centers. Thus the band has become dilute and frees up the placed P for high crop availability.  

A waiting period is required for the band pH to adjust. This waiting period is very difficult  based on the business opportunity and weather. The goal is to improve yields using single pass drills and pre-plant banding in 2 pass production…A Waiting period is required.  

Discoveries made by Harapiak and Beaton are included. 

Highly concentrated Bands of NH3 (20 inch to 30 inch) require a waiting period when P is dual placed with NH3 in shank type application and a Non-Exactrix and a Non-Mustang application.  

The band concentration is often referred to as “Hot Bands”. The phosphate will not be crop available for up to 30 days due to elevated pH.  

Exactrix overcomes this problem by diluting the bands down to 18,15, or 12 inch band centers….The Exactrix Mustang P-51C and CUE then dilutes again with” Vermiculation” . The Exactrix exclusive vertical mixing technique dilutes the bands further in a vertical column from 2 inch to 8 inch depth.  

An Exactrix P-51 vermiculated vertical band improves the availability of nutrients like placed P….the opposite would be a “Bow Tie” application of NH3 locating the NH3 band deep which requires tillage and does not allow for mixing with APP and NH3.  

It Works Every time,

How can Exactrix Mustang Tool Bars deep band TAPPS and TAPPKTS in the same field during the same day with the planter?  

How can the corn or cotton planters plant expensive seed directly on top of the dilute 12 inch or 15 inch TAPPS or TAPPKS Band of “Super Ammoniated APP/ATS/KTS? 

What is the T Band and why is it so important?

Thus the No-tillage success of Exactrix rests with these 3 factors.

Number 1. Exactrix NH3 injected at 1% CV uniformity forming Tri-Ammonium Crystalline Poly Phosphate, Thio-Sulfate (Thio-sul®) chemical mixing. TAPPKTS is formed inclusion of KTS® . KTS has revised 2019 pricing. KTS is award winning and KTS is economically competitive up to 100 times more competitive than KCL applied top dressed.    
Number 2.
Much deeper bands to 8 inch depth are practical with Mustang openers.
Number 3.
Dilute and vermiculated No-tillage band centers of 18, 15 and 12 inch width at depths of 8 inches. 

A 20 inch band center is technically the end of  the line…and is to be avoided unless a waiting period is implemented. Yield loss can be subtle and difficult to surmise on 20 inch centers.
