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)

    NCAA

    December 18, 2017
    Like a lot of guys and girls, I am a sports fan.  This past weekend I had the opportunity to experience the NCAA final 4 in women’s volleyball.  There are a lot of good athletes across the country but the top teams always seem to float to the surface.

    Increasing crop yield to feed the world, RESPONSIBLY!

    December 11, 2017
    The word Agriculture is a large word in terms of its meaning to the person reading it.  For those in urban areas not directly tied to agriculture, it means having food availability at the local market or grocery store to feed their family.  For those involved in the agriculture services sector, it means taking products grown on the farm/ranch, transforming them through manufacturing and processing for eventual distribution at the local store or market.
