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)

    July 31, 2017
    As the growing season progresses, there is a need to monitor the nutrient needs of the growing crop.   Both soybean and cotton industry researchers have recently identified a few of these reasons.
