Two rain fall events of 8 inches total. A giant April rainstorm of 8
inches after banding and prior to planting produced confusion.
Did the TAPPS nutrients move? The recommendation was to apply more
N. No extra N was applied based on correct information and years of
experience with TAPPS. The decision was based on soil samples in
the band of TAPPS and consulting from TKI, Bert Bock. The nitrogen
remained in the top 24 inches in the critical Ammonium form. The
bands were very easy to find in strip till 30 inch spacing. Samples
were taken twice checking out Ammonium and Nitrate.
In 2016, Ben McClure improved yields to the highest ever generated
at Kramer Seed Co.
