Stupid….It is the farm economy that allows machinery and genetic
technology to increase the margin and make a lot more money.
margin gets close you need a production system that works at the
lowest cost. Your banker knows that for sure….you only get to
borrow so much money.
Thinking and No-till made it happen….Being
able to climb straight up steep slopes takes less nutrient, takes
less time, less wear and tear, and allows VRT-Site Specific to be
like on Kansas terraces single disc drills are superior.
This drive straight technology with single disc keeps the moisture
going in the ground where it falls in the PNW and the Great Plains.
You can get arrested for not driving straight in Kansas.
yield punch of No-till is directly related to technique of single
disc openers applying nutrients regardless of slope angle. Moisture
must enter the soil where it falls from the atmosphere. It is
scientifically called In-Situ or In-Place. That raindrop belongs at
one location before it heads out of sight and destined for the plant
roots and grain production.
Disc Deep Banding Openers change the No-till scenario in the second
pass….allowing vermiculated bands and 8 inch depths raising yield
potential with less nutrient.

Eric states, “ Guy,
over 15 years of Exactrix TAPPS I have made conservatively speaking
60 to 100 more net dollars per acre as compared to old fashioned
approaches with NH3,
Just in cost reductions alone we see less risk and chance to get
very high yields.”
Eric further states,
“As you see we have some of best yields I have ever harvested on
this farm. It is rotation of 5 crops, genetics and Exactrix TAPPS in
No-till that helps me grow.”
Chapter, Producers on the Great Plains.
The MRB technique is acceptable but a lost business opportunity in
the PNW. Banding deep 7 to 8 inches, is the key in the winter
rainfall pattern. Dry summers are coming in July and August.
Moisture must be stored in the soil and roots must find nutrients
fast without the help of rain.
Eric Odberg and I were discussing
today Jan. 9, 2019, the advantages of Single Disc Seeding
and 7 to 8 inch TAPPS and TAPPKTS Deep Banding Mustangs and
why fall banding is always better. Fall
banding has the advantage of snow and “Ammonium Droop”
of the band. The slow perk of melting snow into the soil is powerful
and mellows the stabilized TAPPS band…
Only in North America, ”We have got it….and they don’t,
America has Snow and Anhydrous Ammonia producing the exclusive
Ammonium Droop (Ammonium Hydroxide Stabilized).”
Exactrix TAPPS and TAPPKTS with Ammonium Droop creating a
competitive edge of Anhydrous Ammonia in raising bumper crops. This
is exactly why Nitrate, 32-0-0 can never compete with Anhydrous
Ammonia in cost and performance.
machine durability to make a seeding event happen in true No-till, a
yield punch is secondary….the Bourgault owners have good results
with Exactrix TAPPS and TAPPKTS in Alberta.
Bourgault 3720 air-seeders do not have Mid Row banding
capability…..and Banding maybe carried out by an SDX on 10 or 12
inch centers in a separate pass.
This is only a clarification of Class 1 and Class 3 single pass
drills….Class 5 being a Yielder.
highly visible, Deere 1895 Class 1 machine is the most popular
machine on the Great Plains with about 85% of the market. Case is
struggling having been a laggard in single disc development. Too
much Flexicoil in the Case bloodstream and no product champion.
seeders from Flexicoil has set Case back on the terraced fields of
the Great Plains. Produces on the Great Plains like to drive
straight and save about 30% of their inputs.
Bourgault 3720 needs a significant yield advantage to justify the
machine in PNW.
10 tips and hints…for banding on steep slopes included.
If you would consider a
15 inch band center, 7.5 machine, it should only be implemented for
grazing or raising Teff.
Maybe Flax would be considered for small grain crops that do not
tiller. A 10 inch MRB Deere or Bourgault drill is an excellent
choice. If you need to seed Flax or Alfalfa it is more functional
to seed it twice and get a 5 inch stand. These specialty crops need
5 inch spacing not 7.5 inch. Plus their timing requirement is most
likely better with drill passes and a review of the crop as it is
allows an offset of the machine in a second pass to obtain a 5 inch
Don’t waste your money
on 7.5 inch drills when it is 5 inch that you need.
Deere owners have successful implemented 9 inch spacing. Producers
can easily modify to 9 inch seeding and 18 inch banding (8.66
seeding and 17.33 banding) is acceptable in the PNW with Deere 1895.
There is simply too much machinery on 7.5 inch with MRB machines.
Rebuilding a 10 inch MRB machine is difficult enough.
In other words a 7.5 inch machine is a good waste of money as it can
bring negative returns in winter wheat. A 9 inch or 10 inch machine
is acceptable for service and operation. It is true that 20 inch
band centers are extremely powerful for
stabilization as compared to 15 inch.
No seed row Phosphate is required on 5/15 paired row. In fact Seed
Row Phosphate can hurt yields in dryland as compared to all
nutrients placed deep in the PNW and even the Great Plains. Seed row
Phosphate is a negative for sure when it comes to getting the job
suspect or have wondered if you can modify this machine to do paired
Row 5/15 and you would have a consistent yield advantage of 15% to
30% in wheat and barley when using TAPPS and TAPPKTS and about 30%
of nutrient can be eliminated as a result.
The target for nutrient efficiency and top yields is

Banding in moist soil.
a 2 pass criteria, Mustang Banding of Exactrix® TAPPS
and TAPPKTS is absolutely superior for top yields in dry summer
conditions. Plus Mustang Tool Bars can band early in Chemfallow and
well ahead of seeding. A June application with No-tillage is ideal
for Mid to Low Rainfall patterns of the PNW.
deep and running fast at 12 mph with lots of horsepower allows
No-tillage to save dollars and get top performance of nutrients and
Exactrix banding costs are $1.25 per acre for wear parts going to 8
inch depths…..so banding with Mustangs is highly economical….and
runs cheap over massive acres and much like a sprayer in operating
Exactrix Deep banding cost is about 20% of the Deere 2510 at 4 to 5
Exactrix Banding is 1/5 the cost of Deere Banding.
Exactrix pioneered Vermiculated TAPPS Bands at 7 to 8 inch depths on
the Great Plains….this is highly effective and allows planting
directly on top of the bands.
You will note that this Vermiculated 8 inch design has provided
significant yield and margin improvements of TAPPKTS application on
sandy loam soils. Seed row fertilizer is never used on the Great
are vermiculated and the singulation planter can plant expensive
seed directly on top of the bands.
Plants with initially weak root systems (seed corn, soybeans,
sunflower) need fertilizer much deeper to colonize the more
consistent area of the profile. Planting on top of Exactrix Mustang
bands of TAPPS and TAPPKTS with Ferrilene® makes sense.
