Those ain,t sale prices those are the everyday prices.Plus Farmers like myself gave RK a ton of heat last year for advertisin stuff and never gettin it in or just maybe gettin in 1 bag long after plantin season.They admitted that the stores HQ,s really screwed up.They never did get soybeans in.I expect(and hope)this year is different.

FYI.I have bought some open pollinated corn varieties over the years like Reids Yellow Dent that is a excellent corn and is priced really good and you can save the grain from the ears and use it the followin year for seed.I bought it from a grower in Indiana or Illinois for under $100 includin shipping for a 56# bushel bag that is cleaned and graded.

There is someone who was sellin it also around Latrobe,Pa. but they didn,t have it graded to my liking and cleaned as well as the grower in the midwest.

That would depend on the weight of the bags and the previous years crop.The standard with corn for decades was 80,000 kernels in 56#bushel bags.The 80,000 kernel count still pretty much remains the same per bag(in crop growin stores)but with smaller seeds today I have seen some varieties as low as 30-32 lbs in a 80,000 kernel bag.Stores like RK may bag some seed in smaller non standard size bags for the non farmin plot growers who don,t need much seed.

Also a lot of times you can get seeds from a crop supplier cheaper if they have opened or broken bags.

A lot of those new varieties Oliver are owned and only sold by licensed farm stores like Growmark for example.Or a licensed seed salesperson handlin a brand like Pioneer for example.

The major brand seed suppliers like Pioneer for example bag 140,000 seeds.Always was 50# but different crop years and varieties have changed that common practice.Average about 2300-2800 seeds per lb.I,m not sure what practice RK is using but I will find out this year.

I sold seed for years Dekalb had 80000 seeds per bag, now with irrigatiom guys use 35k per acre...Soybeans were Asgrow RR, about $35 per unit, a unit is 50# bag, not even a bushel..

A lot of Companies have gotten rid of the weight size bag listin Ron.Asgrow for one even stated that they are strictly using 140,000 seed count units not weight cause of the variations in seed from year to year.I always like Dekalb corn.
