Yields go up 13% in Canola.
Ursa environmental disaster,
but Sulfur as Thio-Sul still made a big difference.
Just in, in time for the Hugoton Meeting, Dr. AJ Foster, KSU on the
left and to the right Dr. Bert Bock TKI.
March 1, 2017, Soil Sampling Winter Canola prior to randomized and
replicated plots of TAPPS and TAPPKTS at Hugoton, KS.
Tessenderlo Kerley Inc, TKI, sponsored plots carried out by AJ
Foster of Kansas State University.
Barry Hittle and Joel McClure Hugoton Z road, Test Plot site on
April 28th just prior to Winter Storm Ursa. Irrigated Production,
Potential set at 80 to 100 bushels per acre with Rubisco Hornet on
the job. A great fall start.
TAPPS and TAPPKTS makes a difference when S is 30 lbs.
That is about 10.5 gallons of Thio-Sul. With about 4.8 gallons
10-34-0 or 18 P.
Total N in the plots was always 70 lbs. N and NH3 was adjusted
between 51 to 65 lbs. N based on the N in the Thio-sul® and the APP.
Oil remained the same at 39%, Roundup Harvest Label, Cut Direct,
But yields jumped 13% from 23 bushels to 26 bushels when the rate of
S was increased 150% from 20 lbs. S and 30 lbs. S.
Hugoton, Irrigated, Ursa Storm resulted in very low yields but, the
discovery is still pretty simple.
It takes sulfur to make yields, and it may not be enough sulfur yet
to get the protein to go up and get the oil premium.
We are reviewing additional Thio-sul® on the sandy soils of Hugoton,
GJS, April 28, 17 just prior to Ursa and 15 inches of snow for 10
days. May 8th it began to grow again.
A seldom seen site, maybe a 100 year storm at
Hugoton, KS all the way to Pueblo, Colorado.
By May 1, 2017 there were 20,000 dead cattle and producers were
snowbound for 4 days. Only tractors went to town for supplies.
Low yields from Ursa. But applicable in randomized and replicated
A ( 0 lb S)- 23.5 bu/ac
B (10 lb S) - 23 bu/ac
C (20 lb S) - 23 bu/ac
D (30 lb S) - 26 bu/ac
E (30 lb S + K2O) - 25 bu/ac
LSD 1.5 bu/ac
P value 0.016
Plots were Mustang P-51C applied with Exactrix TAPPS and TAPPKTS
in side-dress mode at 10 to 12 mph. Application depth was 7 to 8
The Exactrix Uniform equivalent of 116 lbs. N with old fashioned NH3
systems. The Exactrix equivalent of 36 lbs. P with older equipment
or techniques to apply phosphate.
Applying 70 lbs. N total in the plots, NH3 varied from 51 to 65 lbs.
N as NH3 depending on the Thio-sul rate.
No other nitrogen sources such as 32-0-0 were used. The crop prefers
ammonic nitrogen, NH4.
Applying 18 lbs of P as 10-34-0 in all plots.
Applying Sulfur as Thio-sul® at 0,10,20 and 30 lbs S and also 30 lbs
S as KTS. Zinc was included.
Crystallized TAPPS and TAPPKTS applied side dress with Mustang
P-1C openers at 7 to 8 inch depths, McClure.
An irrigated 62 bushel per acre average at Goodland, KS, Hornet
produced 39% oil content, Plant population was too high in some
rows. Winter survival was a 2 rating. Naked strip tillage was
required to provide light to the seedling winter canola plant.
Mustang banded with TAPPS. Looking forward to an acreage increase of
4 times at Goodland, KS…expanding into dryland using Chemfallow in
