Mark thinks it was the work of pranksters, and he wants them to pay him $1,200 for the damaged beans he can't harvest. He said he has no insurance to cover the loss

Kudos to the farmer & professor.

Jeers to this guy...
"The plants were all swirled down counter-clockwise, and several places were woven together," Wilson said. "Along the stems of soybean plants where the branches bend off, the leaf bases had been shriveled up and browned as if they had been subjected to some sort of heat damage." "I think we're going to say that this one was authentic," he said.
Certainly no human could swirl things counter-clockwise or weave things. And damaged vegetation browns? Who ever heard of such a thing?

OK, my sarcasm meter is running high today, but sufficed to say, Mr. Authenticity is certainly jumping to farfetched conclusions based on little evidence.
