Sidedressing '07
~ Here is a picture of my dad on our Deutz sidedressing a few weeks ago. The Deutz had to work on the dresser harder than I had expected, i guess the tank does weigh a lot. A few days after we got quite some rain so the corn is really doing well.

~ Another angle. Of course this is the point where my batteries died..... This is a 9 Row wantead side dresser owed by Wanstead Co op. It has a pump that is ground driven wich squirts the liquid fertalizer into a little trench that is cut with the discs. Sorry these are all the pictures. I am interested to see how other people side dress. Over here some guess wait a little longer and then row cultivate at the same time as applying fertalizer. Any stories?

Re: Sidedressing '07
Nice photos :-)

What blend of fertilizer is being applied (some form of nitrogen)?

Cheers,

TC ;-)

Re: Sidedressing '07
Tas, they're applying UAN or 28%, a form of liquid nitrogen fertilizer.

another from of sidedressing around here is injecting Anhydrous Amonia, (NH3) but a little trickier when it comes to handling that stuff and the ground cannot be too hard or you won't get a proper seal and lose a lot of nitrogen as this anhydrous comes in a gas form.

Re: Sidedressing '07
Ok, thanks Huib.

The main type of N we use here is Urea, which is either topdressed on to crops or in some cases used through fertigation equipment.

Re: Sidedressing '07
Thanks Huib, Yeah we are using the 28% I think

Martijn ik weet niet of je dat kunt volgen in het engels maar sidedressen is het aan brengen van vloeibare kunstmest bij de mais als er 4 blaadjes aan zitten. Het gaat vaak gepaart met schoffelen of rijen cultivatoren.

Re: Sidedressing '07
O nou snap ik het.
Maar zaaien jullie dan niet gelijk met de mais ook kunstmest tegelijkertijd.
Bedankt voor de uitleg.

Re: Sidedressing '07
yeah we topdress our crops too, but not with urea, because you can lose too much if it's not incorporated, we use Calcium Amonium Nitrate (CAN) we'll throw it on when the crops is out of the ground and growing, to give them a little boost when they're well established.
and we put on quite a bit of liquid calcium and magnesium on the onions as the onions tend to have those deficiensies in the leafs. so we put them on as a foliar spray every 2-3weeks and we'll mix them in with the weekly preventative fungicide application.

Martijn, Ja iedereen zaait hier wel kunstmest tegelijk met mais zaaien, maar dat is alleen een beetje start fertilizer, een 11-52-0 in korrel vorm, of een 6-24-6 vloeibare kunstmest en zo ziijn er nog wel meer blends die ze erop gooien. maar als de mais eenmaal boven staat gooien ze de rest van de N op het gewas, wat meestal geinjecteerd word
