Why can Exactrix® owners, producers and agronomists agree there
is more net margin?
“Over any other approach or system, Exactrix delivers $60 in
dryland and up to $150per acre more net income in irrigated Corn.”
The highest volume of Exactrix equipment is on the Great Plains
because the nitrogen is 166% more crop available and the phosphate
is 200% more crop available.
TAPPS or Tri-Ammonium Phosphate Sulfate is an 8.5 pH crystal that
provides yield punch at a reasonable cost with 1% uniformity of
The effectiveness of Phosphate is 200% greater when Exactrix TAPPS
is reacted in liquid streaming flows with Anhydrous Ammonia.
Micronutrients are up to 10 times more effective when ammoniated in
homogenous bands of Ammonium Poly Phosphate 10-34-0 and
Ferrilene® Injection with TAPPS makes Soybean production highly
profitable on the high pH, salty and depleted soils of the Kansas.
Exactrix irrigated producers in Nebraska and Kansas, Texas and
Oklahoma, and the Dakotas expect $60 to $150 more net income per
acre with Exactrix TAPPS.
West of the Missouri, there is more continuous Corn and or a Milo
rotation (soybeans are reduced) which also drives higher utilization
of Exactrix TAPPS using Rotational Band Loading and Making P more
efficient with less N required.
Quite often the rotation can also be changed and single disc openers
at high speed can be used.
Here is an Oct. 26, 2016 P and K report in Soybean and Corn Digest
as reported by Pioneer.
TAPPKTS appears to be successful in sandy soils of SW Kansas. Thus,
Some K as KTS is needed in the SW Kansas.

SRS dilution of the ABS helps to invigorate the young seedling. MGPA
and Zinc Phosphate can be used in low level amounts to reduce
crusting and drive the plant coleoptiles vigor.

Adequate Machinery is required, 2,500 gallon trailer tank,

Simple to set up, Looking Glass manifolds allow sectional
control….application at 1% CV is critical for new germination
materials like ZnSO4 and hydrogen peroxide.
Dual tubes required at 65 gallons per acre on 20 inch
spacing. No splashing on the planter is allowed with MGPA.
PD pumps from Exactrix require less than 3 to 5 gallons
per minute of hydraulic flow. The hydraulic flow control valve
is key to using very little oil flow so the planter hydraulic
circuits can work properly.
Exactrix systems do not use Pulse Width modulation, the system
is the standard of the industry Load Sense with Pressure
Compensation circuits. A power head valve is required to
reduce oil flow to 3 gallons nominal per minute.
4 cylinder pumps are usable on 30 to 50 foot planters at
maximum 50 gallons per minute. The pump actually over revs to
650 rpm at 10 psi maximum pressure. Double bypass is required.
6 cylinder pumps are useable on 40 to 80 foot planters at 70
gallons per minute. The pump is over revved to 650 rpm at 10
psi maximum pressure. Double bypass is required.
Looking Glass Manifolds handle high water flows. Allow
sectional control, Line filters can be installed but are not
normally required. Large final filters are not required so
long as recommended stimulants, and certain commercial
fertilizers are used.

Being conservative on the water is not a good plan with field
compaction, roads and unplanned weed areas in the field.
The costs to apply SRS is about $2.00 per acre, Hauling costs are
anticipated to be minimal.
The weeds utilization of soil stored, germinating moisture can cause
a blank out in the stand.
SRS works very well in Kansas conditions, and is applicable in
Canola production 100% of the time, with ZnSO4 and other components
of the germination trigger.
“The Osmotic Gradient is improved in the germination environment of
the seed with SRS techniques”, “Thus soils with right amount of
oxygen and water are aerobic (oxygenated). The result is conversion
of starches to sugars which absorb water more readily to create a
strong radical and coleoptiles”.
Aerobic soils with adequate water in the germination zone (44% seed
moisture) allows the radical root to rapidly elongate with a greater
diameter and more turgor pressure for the Coleoptiles, the mystery
is now a functional part of Canola and Soybean production, and
Sunflowers. The soil must be aerobic or loaded with Oxygen and yet
it must have about 44% water potential to the seed. This is another
reason to experiment with Hydrogen Peroxide to help keep the zone
oxygenated in case of heavy rains.
This is why irrigating the crop up does not work well because the
seed is exposed to a flooded condition and the process is now
anaerobic (no oxygen). The result of too much water is the critical
dormancy enzymes (abscisic acid) are not oxidized in a flooded soil
You can over-apply the water. Just enough water needs to be present
to increase the seed moisture from 10% to 44% water in barley
malting practices…Water can be excessive and no more should be
applied to the seed than to maintain the aerobic wet germination
condition for about 12 to 24 hours for Canola and up to 48 hours for
large seeds like soybean. It is important to allow an air drying
condition surrounding the seed row.
A combination of low humidity and just enough water to swell the
seed and expose the abscisic acid to the oxygen in the aerobic zone
is the goal. This also explains why a heavy rain after planting does
not always produce good stands if the water puddles or stands in the
It has been demonstrated that during the imbibition of barley seed
under aerobic conditions, the level of abscisic acid, a natural
inhibitor of germination, decreases rapidly and germination occurs
However, if the seeds are imbibed under anaerobic conditions
(flooded), abscisic acid is not degraded and the seeds do not
germinate (Yamada, 1985).
The trigger is ZnSO4, the kick starter for the hard seeds, The
purpose of the design is convert rapidly to sugars…much like malting
barley in some respects. There may be other products (MnSO4) that
help drive the germination process.
