Efficient Fertilizer Application with Exactrix

Aaron Bartel
It is a fertilizer system that dual bands liquid
NH3 and ammonium polyphosphate (APP)
10-34-0 and ammonium thiosulfate (ATS)
12-0-0-26S to form TAPPS.
The NH3 is kept under pressure to maintain it
as a liquid and distributed through a two-stage
manifold for accurate distribution.
TAPPS is a crystalline product that is formed
when NH3 and liquid fertilizer meet in the soil.
 It must be formed in the field.
The TAPPS has a pH of 8.5 and it stabilizes
the NH3 in a stable ammoniac form for 6 to 8
weeks longer than NH3 by itself.
With the TAPPS formation farmers typically
see a 10% increase in production.
With the more accurate metering there is only
1% variability between openers with TAPPS.
With the NH3 kept as a liquid to the opener it
is metered as a liquid and provides very
accurate application amount.
Recommended Nitrogen rates from .8 to .6 of
soil lab rates based on application timing.
Single disc openers can be used to apply the
 The single disc openers allow for greater
application speeds up to 10 to 12 mph.
 The openers allow for pre-plant and low
disturbance side dress applications
 Soil disturbance in minimal and makes them
excellent for No-till applications.
Exactrix can be
mounted almost any
single disc opener.
From John Deere to
Single Pass
 Exactrix can be set with
an air seeder to provide a
single pass of sowing
and fertilizing for the
Producers with
Exactrix need to cover
a lot ground. So they
need larger tanks for
few stops. Exactrix
design tanks to fit the
producer’s needs.
Exactrix will guarantee that the margin will
increase with TAPPS
With 200% more crop available phosphate and
166% more available nitrogen
 Corn Production
▪ The Margin will increase $30 to $150 per acre
 Wheat Production
▪ The Margin will increase $30 to $120 per acre
Exactrix is compatible with the major
precision ag controllers.
The 2KC Weighmaster is designed for custom
application and can accurately measure the
nutrient applied.
Exactrix does VRT
application, auto boom
control, and map
making. VRT rates are
recommended at .6 of
soil lab
 Could use Veris maps
to VR the nitrogen.
Exactrix does have a one major drawback,
 A starting TAPPS system starts at $65,000 and can go up to
$300,000 based on features and equipment needed.
Another system that does the same NH3
metering is aNH3 EQUAPLY®
 They use the same metering and cost only $20,000 and you
can create your own Exactrix by adding a liquid fertilizer
system to dual shoot to create TAPPS.
Exactrix is the Cadillac of fertilizer systems. It
will apply fertilizer very accurately and allow
you to cut your rates.
The only problem is the cost.
With rising fertilizer prices, fertilizer systems
like Exactrix will allow producers to cut costs
and stay efficient.
