In 2007 a NC Farmer called me and said I think you need to come to North Carolina. We have had no rain like zero, and we still got about 32 lbs of Soybeans
per acre with your Soysoap. I said is that good and he said its great because most everyone is getting 8 bushels or less. That sort of changed my life as I was in Florida and Major Crops of
Wheat, Barley, Oats, Soybeans, Corn, Cotton, Peanuts and Tobacco got my attention!
53 Day Soybeans Just 3/4 Inch Rain & Dew! Yadkinville, NC Dinkins Bottom Road

Picture 1 of 3 Yadkinville, Cornelius Road, Soysoap Soybeans was not applied to this field until the picture was taken 14 days later than treated field. These Soybeans in same field produce 14 less bushels acre.
Which lead us to believe that production determination is happening within those 14 days.
Picture 2 of 3 Yadkinville, Cornelius Road, Soysoap Soybeans was applied on this field at 3 leaves. The fields had same everything, soils, seed, fertilizer, weather, etc, Picture taken July 17.
When the farmer noticed the difference between the two fields, he sprayed the untreated one, but it was to late as he had missed the determination cycle of the plant!
I would say 98% of the farmers wont spray small plants because they dont believe it helps them.
Picture 3 of 3 Yadkinville, Cornelius Road, Soysoap Soybeans field pictures was August 10. Due to the later spraying of the untreated field it had 14 less bushel production, which had been sprayed at the three-leaf stage.
Both fields had received only 3/4 inch of rain and dew since the seeds were planted. Farmer learned an about lesson, application timing on small plants increases brix and increased
carbon dioxide consumption. In other words you cant get maximum genetic potential from a plant without maximum brix.
