First trial numbers for the harvest season are in--  
In a WSU conducted canola trial Compell showed a 317 lb./acre increase.  At this week's prices that is a net increase of $57.56/acre on dry-land (7-10" precip zone) or an 8x ROI.  Balancing the soil's diet and improving soil health can pay.

For dry-land grain/oilseeds- only 40lbs/acre through the drill as in the trial above.

Have to revise this. The WSU researcher had a typo in the message. It was a 218 lb/acre increase, but still a 5.64x ROI. Got to be honest about the numbers... [br]Previous research, contracted to third party, has shown as much as a 409 lb/acre increase in a 12-16" precipitation zone.
