Less is often more, especially when it comes to cost and resources.
For example, use of the no-tillage process can reduce diesel fuel
usage from 6 gallons per acre to less than 1 gallon per acre to raise
a crop. Use of Exactrix® technology with No-tillage Rotational Band
Loading can reduce nutrient usage by 1/3 to 1/2 of the economic rates
applied. A much lower rate of ammonia in a low CV application helps
all nutrients to be utilized.
Decrease in GHG remains a plus. The chance that applied ammonia
will convert to nitrous oxide, N2O, is greatly reduced when Exactrix®
TAPPKTS+Zinc/ Micros are banded up to 9" in depth. The conversion is
avoided by associating Zinc with the bacteria Nitrosomonas co-factor
Copper, which is the host of nitrification. The elemental lockup
techniques avoid transporting bacterial stepped-up proteins that are
converted from placed NH4 to secondary nitrite (NO2), nitrous oxide
(N2O) and nitrate (NO3).
The highest levels of fertilizer efficiency can be
reached when soil-borne Nitrosomonas bacteria is controlled. The
critical link converts nitrite to nitrous oxide, and micronutrients in
very small amounts, implemented with a reactor design, can help reduce nitrification. With the
assistance of Exactrix® technology, NH4 becomes even more efficient
using Zinc NP and Zinc+2 as a co-factor binder of copper.
The Green Play design reduces P205 application rates by 2 times and
sometimes even greater using
No-tillage Rotational Band Loading in 7.4 to 8.0 pH soils. Soil test P
is actually increased at
50% rates. Exactrix® placement of TAPPS with Zinc formulation is known to be 200%
