This growing season we are doing some experiments with the Ascend product. Ascend is a product that boost soil and root inoculation and applied prior to, or at planting.
We are looking at how the chemical can affect yields. Some early results are seen by digging up roots and comparing the roots of ones with and without the product.
Results as of now show a visible difference as corn with Ascend have larger and more fibrous roots. It will be interesting to see how these plants develop and how Ascend can increase yield potential.
Included are pictures showing the larger roots had higher soil holding capacity of the roots.
