I don't know what you consider inexpensive but to find clean bean seeds round up inoculated will not be at the low end of the price scale. What you wind up with with seed when you go cheap is a field full of weeds. I learned that when I planed sunflowers one year for dove hunting. I would recommend you contact your farm extension office and tell them what you want to do, they can help you.

join the National wild turkey federation, they have spring buys on left over seeds, you can get round up[ ready corn, and soybeans and other seeds(300-400 bucks a bag seeds) for like 35-45 bucks a bag, pending the area your in
costs 25 bucks to become a member for the yr?
you have to contact your local TWTF, and do so SOON< they take orders based on first come first service and it all comes down to what is offered in your area
its the CHEAPEST way I know of to get seeds, deal is, it HAS to be for wildlife Only you cannot harvest it
and second its a YR old seed, I have used the seeds for 15+ yrs and NEVER had any NOT grow, if I did my part(fertilizer and soil PH) and weather worked(rain and sun)
I always add extra inoculate , its IMO cheap insurance to help boost growth, any AGWAY or like store can sell you some cheap to treat seeds before planting

other wise, I know of no other main stream way of getting Good seed cheaper
and joining the NWTF is also going to send money to a good cause as well,
so a win win!

Find a farmer who will sell you some from his dryer. If you plant Roundup Ready soybeans that is what you grow. I have been planting them in food plots for years with great success. I pay $10 for 50lbs of soybeans to replant.

If you want clean seed you will have to find a seed rep who will sell left over seed. Just remember when you do this you will have to over seed as some of the old seeds wont germinate.

for most farmers, doing this can get them in BIG trouble, they all have contracts with Monsanto, and they are known to bankrupt small time farmers and BIG time farmer for selling seeds to anyone and or RE using there own seeds
so finding a farmer willing to SELL you some, is them taking a big risk, to be honest here
stupid and dumb, but Monsanto, is like the Mafia if the seed world and then some
do a little looking on them and see what I mean if you care to!
