Plots A Solution For The High Plains,
Iron Chlorosis of Soybeans, Corn and Milo.
The Soils are
different. This is not Iowa.
Why do soybeans need placed nutrients with
Exactrix® Tri-Flow Injection to get Iron Chlorosis under control?
Why do soybeans need placed
nutrients and Exactrix Tri-Flow Injection to get Iron Chlorosis
The pH chart tells the story when soybeans are raised west of
Finding A Solution For Iron Chlorosis.
The availability of certain
nutrients is greatly reduced and especially if the soils are cold
and wet, loaded with salts, and have high pH. Note that NPKS, Zinc,
Manganese, Iron, and Boron must be applied uniformly.
This is why 10-34-0 or Ammonium Poly Phosphate at a 10 gallon per
acre rate is needed in combination with KTS® at 3 gallon rate.
That is 13 gallons plus 1 to 2 gallons of micro nutrients need to be
added in a vermiculated band.
Poly Phosphate application allows up to 3 to 4 lbs. of metals to be
applied with the Phosphate. Zinc and Manganese are required with a
small amount of Boron.
Crystallized TAPPKTS using NH3 is used to crystallize the PKS and
micros. A small amount of around 15 lbs. N as NH3 per acre.
TAPPKTS plus micros are formed deep in a vermiculated band to the
7 to 8 inch depth.
Iron Chlorosis Resolved. The critical part of the discussion
is Iron and how to get it to work in these soils.
A third product 2KP system is added with Looking Glass Manifolds and
this 2KP system can meter small 1 gallon per acre rates of
The product Ferrilene® is used and it is released in a 2 inch
wide zone about 2 to 3 inches in depth.
Operating the planter directly on top of the band assures a soybean
stand with Iron inclusive and very close to the row but not in the
soybean seed row.
Iron in the soybean seed row damages Rhizobia that must be placed
with the planter.
A very critical point is the planter must run directly on top of the
TAPPKTS and Ferrilene band to get the great start it needs.
Wherever the Buffalo Roam. You
will find high soil pH and calcareous and salty type soils.
Obviously the 40 million Buffalo preferred the Great Plains and this
is what they left behind.
Soils in the 7.5 to 8.5 pH range that cannot raise good soybean
crops but can raise certain grass species for migrating buffalo.
From no stand of soybeans to marginal stands the problem is often
referred to as the Platte Valley Yellows or more commonly Iron
Nutrients must be applied to raise soybeans in high pH soils that
have accumulated salts and high nitrate.
Iron Chlorosis, A great problem for soil scientists to solve.
How to use Exactrix Mustang TAPPKTS &Micros, low CV uniform
application with Ferrilene to solve this problem?
Approved techniques time proven by Exactrix, Producers, Helena
Chemical…and KSU investigators with the help of TKI.
The Soybean Iron Chlorosis
All of Colorado.
The River Valleys of Nebraska.
80% of Texas.
The Red River Valley of the North.
North Dakota and South Dakota.
The most dramatic fertilizer response ever
observed or reported in the last 50 years comes from Ferrilene®.
Thanks to Exactrix, Mustang Openers, TAPPKTS, Micros and precision
In combination with high quality soybean seed from DeKalb®.
General improvements in VRT-Site Specific Application.
Development of the Exactrix® Tri-flow splitter to release the
critical penta-chelated Iron, Ferrilene® in the seedling emergence
The improvements are so dramatic that 20 to 30 million acres of
rotational soybeans can be added to land.
Significant results are also being observed with Corn and Milo.
Here is a good example at 2,800 elevation in SW Kansas.
Exactrix Mustang P-51 C, Binary Banding with P
and T bands makes this TAPPKTS technique work to the maximum level
Check out this recent discovery after years of oversight and
planning. It will enhance your bottom line West of the Missouri
The technique with add 20 million to 30 million acres to the soybean
rotation and at very economical rates.
