is now available in many areas

25# is only $750.00 plus tax, is what the Ag rep quoted it at today, Kroger seems quite a bit cheaper, lol

I wouldn't grow anything roundup ready anyway... Don't want to grow my own food that has genes spliced from other organisms.... You can find that at Kroger like you said. I'd stick to the real sweet corn

Guess the seed companies figured out people were growing and selling it so they had to up their price to get their cut. \:D

Genetically altered stuff doesn't bother me at all. The only thing I do on my own is kill a few deer and turkeys and eat them and grow some tomatoes to eat. Other than that, everything comes from a grocery store. I guess I love round-up ready corn.

I don't really understand why people tend to think genetically altered equals bad/dangerous.

I don't think that at I also do not understand. I don't see a problem in using science and technology to help out.

What would the farmers do if there wasn't round-up ready crops? Seems like it would be a nightmare.

Because it is something to be different about and let them stand out! Something to raise there voice at in a conversation, even though they have no clue what they speak of! With out glyphosate tolerant crops America couldn't feed itself , weeds rob yield period . On top of that farmers have to produce a lot food in a small space, with new neighborhoods complaining about there tractors , and the smell and how there going to grow 3 arms from the chemicals you spray on your fields.Back in the day a good corn yield was 50 bushels to the acre now avg corn yields are 150 bushels to the acre you could not do that without GMO crops! And you defiantly couldn't feed glutinous America without GMO crops . I read a survey that was taken at a organic grocery store , the question was " Did you wear your seatbelt driving to shop today? " 7 out of 10 said NO ! And that's what ill end on!
