Phil McLain, grower and owner of Snow Creek Farms in Statesville, N.C., participated in the trials and has signed up to grow another 2,000 acres of HEAR this year. "HEAR is reliable, without the same disease and quality issues of other crops," he says. "It gives us greater diversity, is a great complement to wheat, and we can double-crop it with soybeans. Plus, we are able to use our existing equipment for planting and harvest."
"TCI has also been excellent to work with," McLain adds. "They have an agronomist on call who is always available if we have any questions."
