Growing Kansas Wheat
Applying fertilizer The liquid nutrients and fertilizer run from the big tanks thru tubing down to tubes attached to the big V-shaped blades on a piece of machinery called an undercutter. The big blades slide under the surface of the soil, slicing off the roots of weeds. Since the blades are placed into the ground where the roots of the new wheat plants will be, the fertilizer and nutrients are also being placed into the "root zone".
