leftover corn seed ?

I have some leftover seed corn from last year. Will it still be good this year.
It was kept sealed in an old unused freezer.
What's the best way to store unused seed?

Thanks!

Should be fine as long as you keep it dry. We have some RR corn seed that we got from PF 5 years ago that still germinates well.

you could put the freezer bag in one of those plastic shoe boxes from Dollar General. Also if you have any fertilizer leftover you can store it in a 5 gallon bucket with a good tight lid , so it does not draw moister.

Yes,your seed will still be good...Been to a lot of farm sales and seen Amish buy a half bag of seed many times..
