I read this with stunned dibelief. We have at least 6 diffrent seed salesmen that would be only to happy to sell me the 25-30 bags that I need each year. I have been buying Pick Seed for the last 6 years, as it just seems towork best for our land. Used to use Pionner or Northrup King. But we can get Mycogen, Masix, Horisen,Deedel, Pride ect. But there are no bargins, My RR silage corn for next year is $268.00. some of are local BTO lads are seed dealers , won't buy from them. They use seed sales to try to get into farms, find out if they are ready to retire, sell out or rent their land,just sniffing around , if you know what I mean.

I don't farm full-time since '01, rent out a few hundred acres, farm some cash crop. When I had dairy, I'd buy about 100 acres worth of 'blends' for silage....last year's re-packaged seed. Very big discount. Is that no longer available? Whatever I didn't chop for silage, I combined, into the Harvestore grain unit, for the cows/steers/hogs. Blends for this area were 90-95-100 day (always 3) top line varieties from the year before. Might even have dried some...never found an issue setting the dryer. And yeah, I can agree with your comment about BTO wanting to get a foot in the door, but so do the small and middle guys who want to grow. Simply human greed.

No,you don't seem to be able to get the discontinued avrieties anymore for some reason. We always used to plant Stanton Brand from Stanton Seed Company. It was just year old rebagged Asgrow. Then I went to getting discontinued varieties from DeKalb at a good discount,but they stopped doing that.

Soooooo, we know not everything gets sold each year- then they're just rebagging, maybe mixing with some new, and selling at the higher price.

Not really. If it doesn't get sold it goes away.

Place I used to work at had a huge corn burner to heat the plant. Brought in old seed by the semi load, corn and canola.

The building had over 9 acres under roof and the corn burner was the main source of heat.

Not really,a lot of the returned seed is put in cold storage and retested and sold the next year.We have gotten some 2 and 3 year old seed before(major brands good numbers).
