I'll start it.

GMO or Non GMO seed??

Why do you use what you do?

I farm full time for a living. I have tryed non Gmo and about 1/3 of my loads get rejected at the prosessor for GMO grain. Don't know why for sure, cross pollnation from nieghbors or false tests.

So it gets sold at the GMO price. If I'm gonna sell at GMO price I might as well plant it to get the yield advantage.

I believe that I would want an explanation. I know that different situations I have had being organic, contamination has cost me, but usually it was because the trucker had messed me up. So now when I hire a truck, I follow him to the local truck wash and make sure the truck is truely clean....

Well crap Gary, Ya left me out in the cold on that one....the last time I planted ANY field corn was 1976! Medium flats as I recall with a JD, nope I planted 30" rows for the first time on 320 rented acres with a borrowed JD 6 row planter. Seems to me it was a plateless planter too, but I remember it left me a few skips due to a problem with the hyd. cyl. linkage on the planter. If you raised it too high a part would flip over and not let the planting mechanisam work.
That winter the ground was sold and they started earthwork on a subdivision. Plus the corn/bean prices went through the roof in about "74 and I couldn't see competing with the high rent guys for $2.10/bu corn so I went back to work in the construction business.

76 was my third year of farming.

Also the year i got married. Had 80 acres of crop 40 sows and made $12,000. If we had 2 or 300 dollars in the checking account we had no worries.

In 1998 I made $12,000 farming. 400 acres of crops and 40 beef cows. Also had a off farm job.

Got worried when the checking account got below $3000 in 98.

I remember going to two farm sales that winter where they also auctioned the ground for rent.
first time I'd seen that, and in both instances the rent went for over $130.00/acre. Too rich for me at the time, but seems pretty cheap right now.
