So maximizing the water that you get done throughout the growing season especially as we get into some drought situations. In addition that we can increase the photo synthesis of a plant and help them maximize its yield especially if they're earlier timings were talking V board of you acorn. What is really the first time at the core planners helping set up its maximum yield that's the time when reform plan as determining the number rolls around on that year. In addition on the backside of growing season if we're making a later application we're talking about extending that grain fill period. So maximizing those last day of the girl.
