Enter your values into the calculator below to get the value of the crop lost under the tires of a ground application.
These are applied across every acre. Add your cost of production per acre to the input field, applying this to the percentage of field you are losing to tracks will give you the value of what running down your crop is really costing you.
These are all included here, you are putting your investments into production on every acre.
Quarter section @ 120ft booms=22 passes. Picture turning off 44 ft of your drill for a pass, or 88ft on a full section.
