Page 4 Fall Banding NH3 for Corn....
Indexing with strip tillage and alignment with previous rows and bands that occur with ridge till are time proven techniques to get improved efficiency with placed nutrients. The technique is also referred to as "Rotational Band Loading" A nutrient rich zone provides geometric access of the nutrients by the growing crop. Chemical and positional availabiltyis especially profound for nonmobile P,K, and Zn.
Advanced technical producers can take advantage of this technique with the development ofthe single disc opener to apply EXACTRIX generated NH3. The single disc openers low horsepower requirement means the tool bar can be set up with 6 inch paired openers on 15 inch band spacing. The sixteen row tool bar shown bands NH3 on 30 inch centers with KCI,Zn and N-serve. Ammonium Phosphate is banded with the aligned paired opener on 30 inch centers. Twin bands are spaced at 6 inches.
