"From an environmental standpoint, it's significantly better," she says. "It makes an especially big difference in areas with sensitive watersheds." Of course, the question must be asked, How does this stuff affect yields? "The intended effect is to increase marketable yields," says Biedenfield. "In two years of grower trials, we've seen, on average, a 10 to 13 percent increase, particularly shining in areas of extreme soil pH." Of course, the Crystal Green team isn't out to sell its product just for the sake of making a sale. "There are better ways for growers to feed their potato crops," says Biedenfield. "We want to provide the maximum benefit to the grower, and we're trying to find the areas where this product makes the most sense for them."
