12-17-09 UPDATE: Just spoke to Howard, the corn on this plot avg 214 bu. at 16 moisture! Way to go Howard!
On Monday I attended the Verity Farms Field Day. Howard is doing is really doing some tremendous things to and for his soil. The field that the following video was taken in is Corn on Alfalfa ground. Notice all the earth worm casting, worms, and worm holes. It has been a long time since I have seen a shovel able to be put into the soil its full depth.
What's really stunning is these results were achieved with so little applied fertilizer, no fungicide. Notice how green and blemish free the stalk is. There was absolutely no stalk rots to be found any where in this field! Expected yield is 200+ bushels.
We were very excited to be a part of the field day and see the dramatic changes that Howard's program and SuperCal 98G have achieved. Please contact us or Verity Farms to find out how to return your soil to the soft fertile sponge it was meant to be!
*Pretty exciting that Howard will net close to $400 per acre this year ($3 corn*200 - $200 inputs).
