Frontier Farming Days
Thursday, Feb 14 and
Friday, Feb 15, 2019
Thank You All for attending.
No-Till Advanced Demonstrations and Seminars.
Meet your peers and supporters of advanced farming technology.
Share information on reduced production costs with yield enhancement.
Find the “Mortgage Lifter”, a dynamic shift in your profitability.
Meet the bankers that will finance your change to profitability.
Cotton Nutrients reviewed with biological inputs and SRS.
Making another $150 per irrigated Corn acre with a simple change.
Here is what YOU missed.
Our weather for Hugoton and
Exactrix® Frontier Farming Days is predicted to be ideal for TAPPS
and TAPPKTS Mustang Banding and operating Exactrix SRS on the planters.
Southwest Kansas, Stevens County is ideal
for two days of learning about advanced No-till. The soils typically do
not freeze this time of the year allowing deep banding to 7 to 8 inch
We have a 10% or less chance of rain of no more
the .38 inches of precipitation for the month. This is an ideal site for
operating advanced equipment with Headquarters at the Golf Course and
the Airport close by. Your room is located at the east side of Hugoton
in a new Best Western Motel.
Robin will answer. Rooms are typically $85 to $95 per night in this new
The Temperature projected to be 29 to
32 degrees for a low at night…..and
typically highs in the day with be 55 to 65 degrees on
February 14 and 15.
We will be operating the SRS Planters
with 50 to 100 gallons per acre injection water and the
NH3, TAPPS Formulator Mustang Tool Bars in the afternoons.
It will be windy at about 15 to 20 mph
typically. A good spray day in Hugoton is often found with variable
winds pulsing to 20 mph and out of the north or the west and seldom from
the east or South east.
Scientists and Machinery Engineers like,
Jim Schepers, USDA-ARS-Lincoln, Larry Murphy, FFF and historian,
Bert Bock, TKI, AJ Foster, KSU/Lamb Weston
Travis Miller, Texas A and M.
No-till engineers and experts, Guy
Swanson, Exactrix and Paul Jasa UNLCE will be
Others include Jim Talbert from
Helena regarding Ferrilene®, Brian Caldbeck of
Rubisco regarding Winter and Great Plains adaptable Spring
Troy Coen of Exactrix, Ben McClure of Kramer Seed
and Joel and Jay McClure of Bumper Flats Testing, will help
host the meeting.
Lanny Faliede of
Sat Shot will attend and will explain prescriptions
and how to gather information and write for your GS-3, Trimble or Ag
How do they do that?
Find out how it is done. The ultimate,
massive and informative field maps are made across the continent. Aaron
Aaron Schepers will bring his Aerial
Photography Plane with the worlds most advanced Microsoft camera.
We are also planning on some help from
Channel regarding soybean varieties. Cotton discussions and
presentation with Mycorrhiza will also be carried out.
The ground will not be frozen. The soil
is a sandy silt loam…and the soil profile is totally saturated with above
normal rainfall through December and early January.
We will be operating two Exactrix Mustang
tool bars and planter SRS on Corn Stover, Winter Wheat, Winter Canola,
Coastal Bermuda Grass and Alfalfa.
We will be putting in test plots with the
help of TKI and Kansas State University.
We will set up plots for KTS and corn
Another series of Plots will be utilized
to test Coast Bermuda Grass, Can we fertilize the crop for three years
using advanced deep banding. How long can we go? Going for 10 ton yields
using Rotational Band Loading and No-tillage, at 300 lbs. N
as NH3, 20 gallons of APP and 30 gallons of KTS with Micros. Banding costs
reduced for a 3 year plan of Coastal Bermuda in the 5 to 10 ton range.
We will test Alfalfa and find out how
much APP and KTS can be banded economical to improve yields in Alfalfa and
maintain older stands. Are 15 inch bands fine or should 7.5 or 10 inch
bands be implemented.
