U-Trough Approach

U-TroughBRT Ag and Turf & FHR are introducing a concept planter that places fertilizer and biologicals in a u-trough to maximize energy and nutrient efficiency in each and every plant. The U-trough Approach consists of using liquid and dry fertilizers, biological, and other nutritional additives applied at planting.

On one side of the row we are applying a dry homogeneous blend of fertilizer and on the opposite side we are injecting liquid nitrogen with calcium and sulfur. Below the row a stream of liquid orthophosphate and a biological root stimulant are being placed. Each and every plant has access to the same levels of nutrients which promotes consistency and uniformity to the crop.

If you are interested in maximizing yields, increasing nutrient efficiency, and growing a high quality crop – look at the U-trough Approach.

V-E
V-E Emergence - cotyledons have been pulled through the soil surface
V-C
V-C Unrolled unifoliolate leaves - unfolding of the unifoliolate leaves
V-1
V-1 First trifoliolate - one set of unfolded trifoliolate leaves

The above information was compiled from the Iowa State University.

The above information has been compiled from over 29 years of data leading to the U-Trough
Approach which has lead to the Field to Plate, A Road Map to Nutrition.

The above pages are just a mirror image of a full program which can be further discussed
and reviewed using the Manual for Fertlity, Farming for the Twenty first Century, and Life in
Energy in the Soil, which are all excellent examples of biological agriculture and the approach
it take to get there, not by just using product but through a systems approach using;
Equipment, Timing, field scouting, and using products which aid in the cycles approach to
growing crops.  
Mission Statement
To bring a synergistic relationship between the man and land, while building products that will pursue the highest standards in the industry. Through this relationship we will educate, while building long-term partnerships of success, by using soil science, microbiology and plant physiology.
