Default Very Interesting

That seems like a contradiction since local co-ops sell year old corn, soybean, sunflower, and milo seed to people who want food plots for like $5 a bag. They also donate it to pheasants forever for the same reason. I cannot think of a reason why alfalfa and sugarbeets would be that different! Thats what you get though, monsanto has too much power that has to be used on something!

Basic plant biology. Farm fields are controled and harvested, foodplots are not ... thus too great a risk for cross polination.
