Regarding fertilization of Blue Grass sod….in the Columbia Basin of
Oregon and Washington.
Not many producers know about Exactrix fertilizing winter crops as
shown as well as Blue Grass sod.
Single disc banding allows for excellent timing of nutrients with
And now the bands can be placed at 6 to 7 inch depths in moist soil
In fact single disc banding of TAPPS and TAPPKS and NH3 only is
quite common in Texas.
Large Oklahoma and Texas farms use Exactrix NH3 application systems
to directly apply at 40 lbs N/A rates into dormant Bermuda Coastal
Grass in dryland and higher rates in irrigated production, The
dryland production is in rotation with stocker cattle feeding on the
winter pasture. Also winter wheat is grazed with Exactrix NH3
application in late November and December….up to when the wheat
The Hillside Mustang Tool bar can apply two products as shown at
Walla Walla, The bands can be stabilized allowing a June
application….NH3 plus APP,ATS, KTS as required and Hydra Hume or
carbon based materials can be added.

The Mustang unit bands very deep at 6 to 7 inch depth and self seals
with a unique opener.
The fertilization of Sod has also been carried out with Yielder
drills on 10 inch spacing. This best choice is 12 inch since it
also fits small grain production and corn.
In Kentucky Blue Grass seed production, the Columbia Basin is a
problem area for ammonia volatilization of surface applied N.
Since the Exactrix Mustang Tool bar can also band P below the
surface….and all bands are sub surface located with root pattern
geometry the loss of nutrients is much, much less in Kentucky Blue
Grass seed production….and an opportunity to reduce the chance of
the crop from becoming sod bound which often occurs with surface
Each Exactrix band is within 1% CV of application….so the nutrients
are most likely 50% to 70% more crop available due to the equal band
concentration below the surface in a crystal stabilized TAPPS
At the very least the improved technique can offer much lower
nutrient costs, Much higher efficiency, and better yields.
Also it is possible to use Hydra Hume and other types of carbon
based materials that improve the band efficiency.
