At Dalhart, Texas, Andy Cover has Tractors For
Manure Application Comes To The End.
A New Beginning, No-tillage Starts in 2017.
Andy Cover gets in control of fertilizer application with
uniformity and timing from Exactrix and reduces costs.
Exactrix No-tillage Mustang Tool Bar displaces all these John
Deere tractors and tillage equipment at Dalhart.
If you need a tractor call Andy. 806-340-6088, Exactrix owners might
need a new tractor since they have another 12% net margin.
Tillage with manure application was the previous plan on 3,100
acres. $1.5 million dollars over 6 six years was invested in manure
applications at $80.00 per acre.
What happened? Why is Manure not working so good? Why not apply
mobile Solution 32-0-0 with the pivot and top dress P and K?
Manure cannot be uniformly applied. Exactrix is 1% uniformly
applied at 8 inch depths in No-tillage systems.
Manure is a tillage program at Dalhart, Texas.
There has been a technology shift to precision and TAPPS and
TAPPKTS application. Exactrix can deliver mortgage lifting profits
and make farming fun again.
VRT-Site Specific is almost impossible to implement with manure
and center pivot application of solution 32-0-0.
Tillage is required to work the manure into the sandy soil.
Rotational Band Loading is not possible. Only No-till allows
Rotational Band Loading.
Manure takes years to become crop available.
Manure works very well for the owner of the manure.
Pricing of phosphate was very high in this 6 year period. However
TAPPS makes P 200% more crop available so rates are low at typical
30 lbs. P per acre or about $15 per acre in 2017.
Manure was costing $80 per acre and Solution 32 was costing about
$80.00 per acre at 325 lbs. N. Yield goals were set to high with
Manure. Exactrix TAPPS costs about $75.000 per acre at maximum
rates. VRT will lower that number.
Manure will not yield as high as Exactrix TAPPS and TAPPKS with
streaming flow of micro-nutrients in a homogenous blend. Applied
TAPPS Micro-Metals bring response immediately. Metals like Manganese
and Zinc need to be placed in the band. Iron needs to be considered.
Tillage costs were high to work the manure into the soil at $40
It works every time.
Moisture loss of tillage is 4 inches per acre with tillage. An
irrigated inch of water is $15.00 per acre.
Exactrix TAPPS, Mustangs brought 12% and more net for Cover Farms.
For sure another $150 per acre additional Net Income with a $280,000
investment. Paid for in the first year and most likely twice in
A good deal for Exactrix. A good deal for AndyÖ..and not such a good
a deal for the Deere Dealer, The CPS Fertilizer dealer (he is moving
to Costa Rica for a restart) and The Manure salesman. Manure can be
reprocessed and moved to the city gardeners. They will pay 5 times
what the farmer would. Is feedlot Manure organic? I donít think so.
No more 32-0-0 through the pivot. The center pivot 32 tanks are for
A Powerful TAPPS formulation drove yields higher. Good yielding corn
in the 265 bushel per acre range on sandy soil in tough weather.
Exactrix efficiency? Applied as TAPPS test plots at 100 to 200
lbs. per acre of Exactrix N as NH3 made no difference in yield. All
yields were the same at 265 bushels per acre. Whereby 325 pounds N
was the previous recommendation with manure.
In 20 lb. increments of N as NH3 at 5 different rates using Mass
Flow, 100 to 200 lbs. N as Exactrix NH3, TAPPS produced 265 bushel
average corn crop on each plot.
It will take a few years to get the soil in good shape. The first
Mustang High Speed, pass following years of tillage.
Cover cropping is on the land using a Deere 1590.
Sandy soils and high producing fields will average 265 bushels per
acre in 2017.
Some of these fields will challenge Level 300 in the years to come.
New varieties like 1828 from Pioneer show high potential.

Early season tissue samples help identify each micro-nutrient need.
