Starvation In Nebraska, Conditions.
efficiency is nutrient efficiency and only No-tillage can deliver the
highest levels of performance from 1,000 feet to 8,400 feet above sea
producers also understand the value of standard snow trap and uniform
percolation of rain and snow going into the ground where it falls.
Getting another $300 per acre from Center Pivot corn
Production....another good review of why corn production on center
pivots starve for water...poor calibration of nozzles, poor timing,
wind, and over 50% of the crop is stressed and not meeting full
nutrient application and timing is a management problem when nutrients
are pivot applied with irrigation water.
pivot application of water and nutrients can starve the corn root
only is the water not evenly applied, the on board nitrogen and sulfur
fertilizer is also non-uniformly applied as shown in the inclusive
problem is wind….and the windy day problem never seems to go away.
is virtually impossible to improve the pivot application of nutrients
and try to compete with Exactrix TAPPS, 1% CV application banded at the 7
to 8 inch depth.
efficiency of nutrients and water requires much deeper bands of
nutrients including non-mobile phosphate and potassium.
root colony development using old fashioned fertilizer application
approaches, does not allow the crop to reach the top potential and
maximize water and nutrients.
key point of Mustang single disc openers is to band a lot deeper to 7
or 8 inch depths on 10 to 15 inch centers with absolute uniformity of
1%CV application. www.exactrix.com/mustang.htm
you put fertilizer is where roots grow. The most powerful root
colonies are on 15 inch centers in corn and 10 inch centers in wheat.
This is why Hydra Hume works well when it is deep banded,
building multiple root colonies with TAPPS and TAPPKTS at deep banded
depths of 7 to 8 inches.
Band Loading is also greatly improved in No-tillage farming
when multiple targets are produced for future crops with
TAPPPKTS and Hydra Hume. At top P efficiency of TAPPS
and TAPPKTS only 30% can be consumed by the growing crop in
the first year, therefore No-tillage allows bands to
be positionally and chemically available for future crops.
TAPPS and TAPPKTS band with Hydra Hume are also a big
improvement for Zinc and Copper in the band…and small
amount of Nickel…the micros can and must be banded to get
top results economically.
The deep banding with buffering Hydra Hume helps to develop
deeper roots deeper The above picture is a pretty good reason
why Solution 32 and 28 through the pivot is not a good idea.
pivot application program of nutrients is like raising corn
with gravity furrow irrigation landscape…the top yields
and lowest costs will never be achieved with old fashioned
pivot corn production is the best place to find differences
between banding nutrients and applying nutrients top
Exactrix TAPPS deep banded at the 8 inch depth at Yuma,
Colorado has made a big difference, since the uniformity
problem has been overcome and timing of nutrients is good.
Hear what producer Steve
McCasland has to say about his good corn crop at Yuma, Colorado.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFw12UKTEvU&fmt=37
Steve McCasland, Yuma,
Exactrix TAPPS Rooting Profile with Vacuum injection in a
stratified charge can raise 300 plus bushel corn….moving
as much as $300 more net dollars to the bottom line as
compared to 32-0-0 with the pivot.
openers were key in making a 316 bushel average with
Monsanto Dekalb varieties and Exactrix TAPPS with carbon.
