So that would be about $640 for a bag of seed. Doesn'r make the traited stuff look so bad from the big seed companies any more!

Small purchases like that require all the same overheaqd as if tyou bought 1000 lbs - paperwork, reciept, time for processing the order, tax records, etc. All of that costs maybe $5, or $10 to make a sale.

You get all that built in processing costs onto just your one lb.

Then you can save your own seed in the future, so they might not make more sales to you - need to get what they can from this one sale.

As govt requires more taxes and more record keeping, it only gets worse.

Much of the food grade organic soybeans were bred by the Iowa university system, and they retain ownership and licencing of their organic bean seeds as well.

So, the same applies to most any seed these days, not just gmo.
