Anyone use a product called Excavator?

It's a biological that claims to reduce/eat away crop residue. Trying it this year for the first time. Anyone else heard about this?

I have not used that exact product but have tried a similar product the last couple years. In a no till situation, in the spring the standing stalks are hollow and black inside. They break apart quite easily. I have a good amount of soil showing, its not all covered in trash. I no-till soybeans into them.

I harvest my corn with a non chopping JD head with Calmer knife rolls.

My intended results is to reduce corn residue for notill the following yr to soybeans.
