Harvesting over 90 Bushels Canola 125 Bushels Wheat Tennessee's Larry Williams
Interviewer: We’re sitting here with Larry Williams this morning, down here at Decherd, Tennessee. And Larry's been a two year user of our Soysoap product on his
crops and things today, and we want to ask Larry a couple of questions about what he thinks about the use of Soysoap. Larry, just tell us a little bit about your experience
with the Soysoap, the last couple of years.
Larry Williams: Well, let’s say, we’ve been using it about two years and we’ve had good results. I got a space that were bean dropped, you know, and we used it a year
before last, the beans probably made about 10 bushel an acre more than it did when we didn't use it and we just kind of had a little trial run that year, and it – we figured
out what was going on – what was the reason that one field across the road makes much more than that, but we found out what we’ve done, we put soap on that one field, and the
other field didn't. And it helped to shatter, one field shattered out a little bit, the one where we put the soap was – they didn’t shatter out they just didn't so much better
than the other ones, you know, and kind of convinced me that the product works, and so we’ve used it again, and based those same thing again this past year and so we’re going to try it again.
Interviewer: But tell us little bit about your wheat crop this past year in 2011, what your use of the Soysoap on your wheat crop.
Larry Williams: Wheat was pretty good ever with the – we had 100 acres and averaged 125 bushel an acre and had a test blot, it had some yields ended up as much as 150
and so I'm convinced it has made it, it has done something to it there.
Interviewer: We came in this time and you had some canola this time for the first time that you've had in several years and tell us a little bit about your canola yield.
Larry Williams: Well we had – we intended to make two shots on the canola but their plan didn’t work out the way we did, but we got one shot on it, and when we put the
pole line on it, with the front side [phonetic] [0:02:08] on it, we put a shot of it on our land and we had about a 75 bushel or better average on 200-and-something acres of
canola, you know, and it turned out pretty good. And it helped it, it got – as a matter of fact, it might have got a little too tall on the whole with the soap. So then you
don’t even think of the hot weather on but it got pretty big but that didn’t really bother anything.
Interviewer: Tell us about the soya beans that you had here beside the shop here, behind the Canola, tell us sort of a little bit about what you did with the soap on
soybeans this time.
Larry Williams: Yeah, we had – we planted 100 acres of beans behind the canola they went right across the road, and planted some behind some wheat, soybean planted
the same day based in the same ground, you know, and we sprayed soap on both of them, but the Canola beans averaged about 12, 13 bushel per acre more than the wheat beans did,
planted exactly the same day, the same bean, same weather, same everything.
Interviewer: Did you put two shots of soap only?
Larry Williams: No, we just put one.
Interviewer: You put one?
Larry Williams: No, I put two, I put two.
Interviewer: Two, okay.
Larry Williams: Yeah. We put two on it, but one in [indiscernible] [0:03:22].
Larry Williams: Yeah.
Interviewer: Well, is it a product that you would recommend to other farmers, Larry?
Larry Williams: I would. I believe it's convinced me that it works, even the year before last when it was dry, we had some corn that year, and the corn just maintained its color and just held up in the dry weather better than it did – the other did, you know, where they get last year, but the year before last, we didn’t intend, got some more, quite a few acres of corn, it’d held up better, it held its color and same – it didn't stress it out as bad during the dry weather.
Interviewer: Okay, well, thank you, Larry. We appreciate your time today, thank you.
