Default Dawn Pluribus Strip Till

Just looking for someone that has some experience with the Dawn Strip till unit- I like the option of using it in the spring vs. the fall- I think you would get to much side-wall with a shank unit in the spring.

The Dawn Plurebus is a different concept when copaired to a shank machine. The Dawn does not run as deep and when it was brought out not able to do NH3. I had a long conversation with the guy in charge of the row unit and he has a good program if your open minded and can change how you do things. You won't get the depth,8-10 inches, as with a shank machine. Our reason for not getting the plurebus was the ammonia thing. As for side wall compaction,if your running in wet conditions you'll get it with anything. As a custome operator I flag anything I don't like and if the salesman and farmer want to go anyway so be it,but their are alot of times when they side with me. In the fall you may get away with a little sin.
If you like the idea of putting on dry or liquid 10-34-0 ,and side dressing your N or putting all your 28% through the bar Dawn is your program. If you like Ray Rawson's thinking you'll go shank machine and deep.

I know they can put down ammonia now but when they launched it they did not. Early on my conversations with them indicated that the ammonia placement was a hard hurtle to overcome.
