Mistakes, Exactrix Owners Bush Up.
Owners Are “Thee Low Cost Producer”.
No other approach is known to

Every Exactrix® NH3 Storage
Tank is worth a $100 to $280 per ton more to the bottom line.
Economics of NH3 Storage.
At $100 per ton,
That is 6.1 cents per lb. of N….Multiply out your farm needs per 1,000
acres of irrigated corn with Exactrix TAPPKTS at 127 lbs. N per acre.
The storage savings
per pound of N is 6.1 cents (at $100 per T) to 8.54 cents ($140 per T) to
$17.08 ($280 per T) ….. that is $7,740.00 to $10,870 to max $21,1740 per

That is a lot of money at up $55,000 per 1,000 acres. The yield punch

NH3 is available for a fill-up at $320 to $340 per ton…and the NH3
retailer offers Anhydrous Ammonia at $480 to $599 per ton in the spring
according to DTN and Exactrix owners observing retail vs. on farm storage
April 19, 2019, DTN Retail Survey,
Six of the eight major
fertilizers were slightly higher compared to last month.
Potash had an average
price of $386 per ton, urea $405/ton, 10-34-0 $474/ton, anhydrous
$599/ton, UAN28 $272/ton and UAN32 $319/ton.
Two fertilizers were
slightly lower than they were the prior month. DAP had an average price
of $509/ton and MAP $533/ton.
On the cost of N/per
pound, urea is at $0.44, anhydrous $0.37, UAN28 $0.49 and
A 176% price swing is observed at Oct. 1, 2019.
The big difference is the 30,000 gallon NH3 tank, when compared to April
You the producer
must pick up the NH3 trailer up at the fertilizer dealership. If the
fertilizer dealer delivers to your farm you will pay. Delivery normally
adds, another $75 to $100 per ton to pick up and return of the 1,000
gallon trailer. This 1,000 gallon trailer tank program is an old Coop
system that does not exist or never did exist in the western US and
Canada. On farm storage is key in the west on large farms with long
distances between farms.
Exactrix is a total business opportunity for every
producer that uses 70 ton or greater of NH3 annually.
A high quality

The longevity of NH3 is well known.
Plus you own the

Don’t Get Fooled,

There is never enough storage when demand is high for NH3.
Storage of NH3 stabilizes the price and keeps the NH3 owner in the
Storage of NH3 is favored by the fertilizer industry.

on distances, it takes a fleet of twelve to twenty 1,000 gallon ammonia
trailers to compete with a single 3,000 to 3,500 gallon delivery truck.
The ammonia is paid
for in the summer or fall with a fill-up when NH3 prices are at their
lowest. Maybe as low as $280 per ton if you are quick on
the draw in summer 2019.
There are several
more advantages (about 20 more) that we need to talk about including
