Based on the USDA National Agricultural Statistical Service's reports for 2013 crop yields in the Great Lakes Region, soybeans in Shelby County, Ohio area, where many of Verity customers are located, experienced an industry average yield of 47 Bushels per acre in 2013. Verity's average yield in this same market this year is 67 bushels per acre, an increase of 20 bushels per acre, or a 42% increase over the market average. Corn in Shelby County, Ohio, in the center of the Verity market in Ohio, experienced an average yield of 175 bushels per acre in 2013 according to the USDA report.

Farmers using Verity's protocols achieved these increases at lower or comparable costs to traditional farming techniques.
Testimonials from Verity customers also reinforced the significant increases in crop yields driven by Verity's proprietary products and processes. Verity customer Dennis Vande Brake said, "Together with some changes on the farm and the improvements from the Verity products and recommendations, my farm's average corn yield was 190 bushels per acre.
