Returns to accelerated corn residue decay

One of our long-term customers asked us to evaluate the expected returns to the Biocat 1000 treatment he applied to corn stalks last fall (October 2018).  Based on our previous field studies, we expect the product will decay an additional 3 tons of corn stalks by next summer (July 2019).  To provide the same nutrients from commercial dry fertilizer (potash, MAP, and urea), he would have to spend over $50 per acre.  At regular retail prices, the Chandler Biocat 1000 treatment costs about $11 per acre.
