EVENT OVERVIEW:

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 depths.  

  • 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. 1-620-544-7766, Robin will answer.  Rooms are typically $85 to $95 per night in this new Motel.
     
  • 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 present.   

Others include Jim Talbert from Helena regarding Ferrilene®, Brian Caldbeck of Rubisco regarding Winter and Great Plains adaptable Spring Canola.

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 Leader.   

How do they do that?

Find out how it is done.  The ultimate, massive and informative field maps are made across the continent. Aaron will explain. https://ultracam.wordpress.com/2012/09/26/cornerstone-mapping-acquires-a-microsoft-ultracamlp/ 

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 production.  

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.
