    We as Americans like to win.  We like to beat the other guy. We have competitions for almost everything and we want to be on the winning team. We at TSM® are doing our part.  We have continued our winning streak with another win this year.  The 2003 crop season had 28 plots and TSM® was the winner in 89% of them.
    This is a very similar win percentage to the New England Patriots in regular season play.  Their percentage of wins was 88%.  Hey, where is the Soil Fertility Superbowl?
