Well I do for the fact that the way this country is headed (not political please) I feel a real downturn and hyper inflation coming on. Now Reids yellow will produce 120bpa in a good year and you can save your seed for the next year . Now if hyper inflation hits what do you think your price per bag of that fancy gmo corn with cost you? what do you pay now? I raise my corn to feed my sheep, hogs and chickens........and sell cornmeal to others..........some people dont want that GMO stuff and I am one of them. I am planning on building my own Ethanol production unit so I will be totally self sufficient as my older tractors can run on pure ethanol.........besides it is good to drink too.......LOL.

That is why I plant open pollinated corn. To each his own I guess!

Who said I plant all gmo corn? Some good conventional corns can be bought for $120/140 per bag. I figure with $7 corn it's basic economics.I plant some conventional hybrid corn so if I plant conventional corn and you plant op corn our weed controll options are going to be similar plus I have a variety that has been bred for yield, standability, drought tolerance, ect. not some corn they planted during the civil war! I don't know what the max yield potential for your area is but I wouldn't want to be limited by a variety that can produce 120 bpa under ideal conditions. If it were that good farmers around here wouldn't have switched to hybrid corn 60 years ago.
