I don't know much about foreign trade and at the risk of showing my ignorance, but I just can't help but believe that you can't sell someone something they don't want.
That's the way it works for me anyway.
The big seed company thing (and GMO's) are getting scary and the "terminator seed" deal is another argument in itself.
I think your right on the money Mike with your thoughts on this subject. By the way, I hate GMO's, for the record. Going to plant a few acres of open pollinated corn for silage. See how it does. Researched it and it's supposed to equal any silage hybid. There's even a strain called Goliath from the Ohio Valley that's been reported to yield 50 tons to the acre. Can't save seed from that because it's 120 days. To far north.
