First Harvest Farm Management, L.L.C. Principle Joe Dierker provided an overview of the plot parameters prior to joining the group digging roots and evaluating plant health, root development and leaf color comparing the TerraSym 408 biologic product against the untreated check for two hybrids entered in the plot by Logan Agri-Service.  The attached photos show the quality of the biologic product in helping get the plants off to an enhanced start especially under the extremely wet soil conditions the plot has had to endure since planting on April 21.
