Could someone please explain why they would want to plant open polinated corn?

We plant open pollinated corn so that we can selectively save our own seed. We save for the traits we wish, such as earlier, bigger, better insect resistance, and each year it gets better and better. It becomes accustomed to your location and adapts better. Also it is getting harder and harder to find seed commercially that isn't contaminated with GMO's. A very good reason to save your own seed. Hybrids will usually only perform well for one year. so you can't save seed.

Some of us for many different reasons want to keep in touch with our past and do things the old way. Just because we want to and just because we can is reason enough.

Great answer Sid . Could not or would not have been so gracious with the response that was forming in my own head. I may use your answer when questioned about using 70 year old tractors to do field work. Really, it was a classy answer.
