In 2020, Dr. Jim Brosnan, Professor, University of Tennessee and Phenotype Screening Corporation (PSC) collaborated to evaluate the effects of Worm Power Turf on annual bluegrass (Poa annua) rooting.
The collaboration provided a new and innovative way to evaluate rooting through the use of Phenotype Screening Corporations' induced-expression phenotyping. In 2004, PSC pioneered induced-expression phenotyping, the comparative study of how agricultural products affect plant development utilizing X-ray technology. Dr. Brosnan utilizing PSC's advanced technology has provided the turfgrass industry a precise look into Worm Power Turf's effect on Poa annua:
• Projected Root Area
• Total Root Length
• Root Distribution by Depth
