Black Dirt Days are a memory.


Seeded winter wheat field 45 days ago borders on established winter canola fields

Adjoining winter wheat fields in the Hugoton, Elkhart area have a poor fall start. Is this the beginning of the end for large winter wheat acres in Kansas? 

The winter wheat price is $2.89 to $3.20 range at Elkhart, Hugoton, KS with a 30 to 35 to 40 bushel proven yield typical depending on soil type.  

This adjoining Hugoton winter wheat field is going to blow soil all the way to Washington DC and erode to the tillage line if the Jet Stream settles in on Hugoton….home of Dirty Thirties and the Dust Bowl.  

Winter Canola is a great conservation crop for this area. Varieties from KSU such as Riley, and Rubisco, Hornet, Garnet and Mercedes, Secondary breeders include Dekalb and Pioneer.  

Crushing the crop is no problem with ADM at Goodland. Also the Dairy industry prefers Canola crush making Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas an ideal location to raise winter Canola.  

In fact Winter Canola could also be planted on harvested high moisture corn, keeping the land covered at all times. Mustang P-51C and CUE Openers can fertilize the growing Canola.   

New methods need to be reviewed to plant Canola just after the corn harvest combine. 

Double the caffeine ……Get up on the step …Jump the fence… and compete for more net dollars with Winter Canola in your long term rotation.

A dryland yield goal of about 35 to 40 bushel per acre, 1,750 to 2,000 lbs per acre. 

The Canola price is following soybeans at about 16 cents per lb or $8.00 per bushel.  

A chance to make a profit and leave a good rotational seed bed for cereal crops. Time proven yield bumps in wheat and undocumented yield increases in Corn.   

Planted with a RRV meter on Deere 1710 planter at 20 inch spacing.  September 5, 2016 planting date, Picture is November 4, 2016.  

Dryland Winter Canola, Full Section Pivot Corner..Rattlers Corner, Rubisco, Hornet.

Exactrix Rotational Band Loading for historical fertility of 10 years No-tillage, 20 inch spacing in Rotational Band Loading along with 10 inch spacing with the Deere 1990 seeder banding TAPPS. 

The crop has 100,000 population goal…mostly higher to 120,000. The crop is generally overplanted wherever you go.   

Needs to drop to about 40,000 to 60,000 population with a high quality planter.  

This dryland pivot corner grew fast and the Pix was probably too late.  

The Single Disc Banding Tool Bar….The Mustang tool bar set on 20 inch spacing banding TAPPS. The TAPPS fertility goes on in the dormant period.  

The next 10 days are a slow cool down. From 32 to 42 degrees F for a low at night  temperature to 62 to 68  degrees F for the daytime high with no rainfall and humidity is 33% to 68%.  High Pressure has set in with the Jet Stream flowing very far north in Sask.  

Insects are still moving around. Canola shows no insect damage but insects are in the crop. Carumba fungicide also applied with the Pix.  

Sunrise is 7:22 AM and Sunset is 5:38 PM, Central Standard Time….about 10 hours of sunlight.  Days are mostly sunny. Good growing conditions.  No Hugoton Canola fields show signs of drought stress. Winter Wheat is in trouble on many dryland acres. 

Banding TAPPS with Mustangs on 20 inch centers will occur in January or February.  


Irrigated Production of Rubisco Winter Canola, Barry Hittle, Hugoton. 

Max McClure inspects the fields that are moist to the surface. Plants lift out easily. The irrigated field is not Rotational Band Loading. Nitrate and tillage history, Top Dressed. Rubisco Mercedes. Low residue.  

The irrigated yield goal of 70 to 80 bushels per acre, 3,500 lbs to 4,000 lbs….with a chance to double crop Milo with a mid-June harvest completion.  Yields can be higher but Sulfur fertility is important to make high oil content. 

Thio-sul® solves the sulfur hunger need for top protein or oil content in Canola and also stabilizes nitrogen with Thio or phytoxic sulfur in the TAPPS. Thio-Sul® also frees up micro nutrients in the exclusive pH swing.  

Raising the oil content above 44% is going to require a TAPPS double or Triple rate of Thio-Sul® in the Tri-Ammonium Poly Phosphate Sulfate AZn band….25 lbs. S to 30 lbs. S with 10 to 15 lbs APP and 65 lbs. N to 100 lbs. N.

The Canola crop can be fertilized heavier with TAPPS at the maximum of 12% or the gross…and the bet can be raised to 14%  to 16% of the gross if Milo is immediately double cropped. In fact, due to stabilized TAPPS nutrients can be applied with both crops in mind in the double crop.  

Double Cropping is very important under pivots. Using the all the sunlight possible and moisture to the maximum with Winter Canola and Milo.  Using a Mustang tool bar to side dress both crops to improve the planting date and improving winter hardiness of the winter Canola.  

Nitrogen must be stable….Keep the nutrients ammonium based is a big part of the puzzle. Fertilizing timely with improved returns for the better winter Canola crop. Always fertilize this crop in the dormant period , band TAPPS , and look forward to a second double crop.  

Get the Gross returns above $1,000 per acre with Canola and Milo in double crop.

Dr. Karen and Max. Taking notes on all fields. Max is going to be a great farmer or a scientist with an advanced degree in human relations.  

Max is going to be a Canola farmer.

Vermiculation of TAPPS Illustrated with Milo….with TAPPS driving yields in No-tillage farming with Mustang Openers.  

Vermiculated TAPPS and TAPPKTS, AZn banding in 6 inch vertical bands to 8 inch depths is accomplished with Mustang P-51CUE openers and 2KC and 2KP TAPPS formulators with 2KR third product injection.
