Installation and Calibration

Installation of Fertilizer Equipment

To use NACHURS liquid fertilizers, your planter/drill may need modifications for in-furrow or precision placement.   Precision-placed fertilizer requires proper equipment for accurate application, pressure, etc. 

Calibration Procedure

  • Determine the recommended application rate/acre for NACHURS liquid fertilizer.
  • Calculate the distance required to drive in field for each nozzle to treat 1/128 acre. (ounces collected from one nozzle equals gallons per acre)



FORMULA:

Distance to Drive (feet) / Row Width (inches)

  • Drive required distance and collect output from one nozzle (check row and deep placement seperately).
  • Adjust to obtain desired output
    • Pressure pump:  Adjust pressure, speed or nozzle tips
    • Squeeze pump:  Adjust sprocket size
Example: Distance for each nozzle to spray 1/128 acre (one ounce collected per nozzle equals one gallon per acre)

    Stress Control

    July 18, 2018
    The same thing that takes years off of your life can take bushels off of your crop.  Sometimes there is nothing you can do to control it and sometimes you cause the problem all by yourself.   I am talking about stress.  We all know that the doctors tell us heart disease is stress related.

    Do you have an antagonistic soil?

    July 10, 2018
    Recently, I spoke with an industry expert that complained that all they really want from a soil sample is to tell them what nutrients to apply.  In a perfect world a farmer or consultant could do just that.  However, in the real world truly understanding how your crop will respond to fertilization requires much more than a lab-based fertility recommendation.

    Stimulating nutrient uptake with NACHURS Finish Line and how it works!

    June 28, 2018

    I know I've said so many times before efficiencies are not exact. Efficiencies are dependent upon environmental factors, moisture, temperature, physiological maturity of the crop, and the current health of the crop.
