Who is buying Exactrix NH3 Direct Injection Systems?
Approximately 90% of the Exactrix systems utilized for corn production are sold from the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains to the Ohio River valley. The three leading states for Exactrix technology are Indiana, Nebraska, and Kansas. 75% of all the producers use high speed (10 mph) single disc openers to improve the seed bed quality producing better moisture infiltration (No-till). The producers who buy Exactrix in this production area are concerned about 3 factors. 1. The Mississippi River drainage is overloaded with nitrates depositing into the Gulf of Mexico. This is the Gulf Hypoxia problem that is causing great alarm. Approximately 55% of the nutrients are coming from agricultural runoff. Several financial incentives are available to producers from state and federal agencies to reduce the use of NH3 with accurate Exactrix System technology. California, the PNW and the Eastern Seaboard are also target areas for nitrate release reduction into the rivers and drinking water. Last ye
