Subject: FFA project in coordination with
his parents Joel and Dr. Karen McClure, and Ag Economist, Ben
McClure of Kramer Seed Company, supplier of Certified Winter Wheat
Hugoton, of Southwestern Kansas.
Winter Wheat Grower and 10 other crops irrigated and dryland.
You have the beginnings of a great FFA project
that might be published in a scientific journal in a couple years.
I will work with some breeders and scientists at the USDA -ARS and
see if we can’t get a review as a junior scientist that works hard
on the Great Plains to improve his families livelihood.
You are following in the footsteps of
grandfather Dr. Walter McClure of Oklahoma State. As a plant
breeder Dr. Walther McClure helped pioneer Milo production in the
You will note I remember your granddads work
when I was a student at the University of Idaho in the 60’s. My
professors Dr. Boe and Dr. Fenwick told me about Milo in senior
level classes. These great Idaho professors were working on diseases
of Idaho crops and growth regulators of Idaho crops.
It is funny Jay how you have taken on a project
that we engineers and agronomists have all dreamed about for many
Exactrix Global Systems.
Utilizing your Mustang Tool Bar you can side
dress your No-till winter wheat. You can side dress the best
nutrient TAPPS. TAPPS is applied at a 1% CV in
chemical crystal formulation.
When you side dress the wheat in November it
will be big and well established. Ideal for low soil
disturbance, swiveling single disc Mustangs operating
a high speed with NH3, APP/ATS and Zinc.
Geometrically Speaking….You will want to
operate the tool bar between 1 inch to 2 inches away from the 3 leaf
to 10 leaf wheat row using your RTK guidance system, you can even
run over a row…that is fine.
The Exactrix Mustang TAPPS bands should be deep
in the soil profile at 7 to 8 inch depth.
Seminal and secondary winter wheat Root
colonies will form that can handle drought stress by building deep
root colonies that have more consistent moisture in May. Deeper is
always better….and improved targeting by the WW roots. You may also
want to consider a biological treatment of Mycorrhiza when side
dressing with your four product delivery Mustang Tool Bar.
Do not apply TAPPS fertilizer
or biological materials away from the 20 inch winter wheat
rows or towards the middle or between….because the weeds will find
the fertilizer over the winter and the winter wheat will lose
Avoid Mid Row banding. You will feed the
weeds and starve the wheat if you band TAPPS in the middle of
the 20 inch rows. Above all do not top dress the winter
wheat with dry fertilizer, only side dress TAPPS.
It will be important to fertilize the winter
October 20 to
November 20. Why is that so?
Testing has indicated that fall TAPPS banding
is superior in yield performance in winter wheat….
“Anhydrous Ammonia and Snow go together hand and glove.
If it turns wet over the winter….you can tissue
sample….and I doubt that it do any good to supply
additional nutrients since the timing is perfect to the plant and
the geometry is the best.
Since Mustang TAPPS nutrient bands are so close
to the Wheat rows…you will have leveraged the crop and not as much
fertilizer is required due to high efficiency.

for back to back winter wheat.

Keith at Weber Seed Company
bands TAPPS in February along the Missouri river bank levees at
Marshall, MO. A stimulating farm site is for sure a great dynamic of
the western expansion of the United States. Both the Santa Fe Trail,
the Oregon Trail and the western expansion riverboats to Fort
Benton, Montana are directly related to the Missouri River at this

greater nutrient efficiency a Total of 53 lbs. N….40 lbs. N as NH3
and 13 lbs. N. from two sources using 11 gallons of product. For
sure 13 pounds of N per acre comes with Ammonic N in the 10-34-0
with 11.67 pounds of phosphate per acre (3 gallons) and 23 lbs. S (
8 gallons of Thio-sul® at 12-0-0-26S) with .5 lbs. of ammoniated
Zinc (16-0-0-20Zn) should do it.
Do not short cut S….your soils can handle S
rates to 30 lbs. per acre. This higher S in
combination with N will build good protein in winter wheat including
Zinc and help build test weight in dry years.
Zinc should always be used with winter wheat
to enrich the berry.
Spend no more than $30 to $35 per acre on
nutrients to raise a good economic winter wheat crop at average to
high yield levels.
If you decided to spring side dress
TAPPS in February or March….side dress on the opposite side of
the row with an offset….and get very close to the row…within 1 to 2
inches of the row.
Do not be concerned about banding directly
into winter wheat rows. A small amount of damage will not hurt the
yield when banding in February.
Using precision placement of TAPPS you have
enriched the plant and set nutrient rich targets on both sides of
the crown roots….this is called reverse paired row.
You are achieving a new ultimate means to raise
hybrid wheat at 15 lbs. per acre of seed or 180,000 population using
SRS to improve emergence and lower seed rates as a result.
This is great achievement.

Winter Wheat, TAM 111 is planted at 180,000
population with 100 gallons of SRS.
Row cleaners keep the rows free of debris and carryover soil active
Row cleaners work well and
SRS assure a 95% to 99% stand. Long leaves with no seed row starter
fertilizer means a healthy plant.

dressing in 3 more weeks.
