USAID Iinternational work. He worked in about 20 different countries around the world. So He has seen a lot of different kinds of agriculture, but he says he never experienced anything like Soysoap that he was seeing

Dr. Hesser Review of Biobased USA Soysoap on Wheat and are growing Corn, Soybeans, Barley, Oats, Tobacco crops.
Dr. Leon Hesser: I am Leon Hesser, I am here in North Carolina, a few miles west of Winston-Salem. I am here meeting with a group of farmers about -- I met with about eight or ten so far, who are using a new technology, a growth stimulant that has a code name of Soy Soap. It's so new it doesn't have a genuine name yet, but itís a remarkable product.
Let me give you a little bit of my own background so you will know where I am coming from. I grew up on a farm in Indiana. I farmed until I was 30 years old, and then went to college, and went in the US GOV USAID International work. I worked in about 20 different countries around the world. So I have seen a lot of different kinds of agriculture, but I have never experienced anything like what I am seeing here in North Carolina.
These eight or ten farmers that I have met with are growing corn, soybeans, barley, wheat, oat, tobacco, and a few other crops. The main thing that we are seeing on this trip that I am here on now is the harvest of wheat and oats. It's just absolutely remarkable.
One man who said that the highest yield of wheat he had ever had was 70 bushels. This year, so far what he has harvested he says is averaging 90, some of its going 110, and that's just typical of what each of these farmers are saying. This result is because of the use of this new growth stimulant.
The test weight on this wheat this man says is 63, 64 pounds, and most wheat that has not been treated with this product will run either below 60, or maybe not more than 60 pounds. So that's a remarkable difference.
On the oats, one man has 50 or 51 acres. He has got a bin that holds 6,500 bushels, and he says he doesn't think its going to hold it all. That turns into 120-125 bushels an acre, of oats. So that's just absolutely remarkable.
They are also using it a lot on soybeans and corn. Only one farmer in this area has actually harvested some beans, where it has been treated with the Soy Soap, but the difference in the yields, again, was something like 50% more than the ones that were not treated.
So it's a fascinating product and other people need to know about it. I think that's about all I can say about it at the moment; that itís spreading.
I had dinner last night with half a dozen of these farmers, and some of them brought their wives along, and their reaction to this is different from anything I have seen any place in the world, and it's going to spread very, very fast.
