Wheat-max is a total fertility program designed specifically for the dryland and irrigated wheat in the region by Godsey Precision Ag, LLC. Predicting season long N, S. and Cl needs of wheat is nearly impossible when done prior to planting. Wheat-Max is designed to use pre-plant soil samples and in-season monitoring of nitrogen (N), sulfur (S), and chloride (Cl) to increase nutrient use efficiency and maximize profit.
The wheat-max program can be customized for each producer and each field. Each situation can be customized from the following:
- Soil sampling in late-summer/early fall: 0-6″ depth (grid, zone, or composite)
- Soil sampling collected in late winter from 0-24″ depth to determine profile N, S, and Cl prior to top-dress
- Season long N monitoring using N-rich strips
- 1 aerial image for variable rate top-dress and in-season scouting
- Yield map at end of year
Example: Over a 2-year period on 5,000 ac, under drastically different yield conditions, we have saved an average of $6-8/acre on nitrogen by accurately assessing in-season N needs of the crop. This was for one producer.
