Re: Interesting Study from Purdue on GMO's

Cheapo - I always enoy reading your posts as you do throw out some different idea's - So with that said - I will try and throw out some of my different Ideas - lol

 

I have to wonder how they come up with there numbers - like the 5 on beans and 11 on corn - I will agree that on the beans - That is the biggest rip off in the seed business today - there claims - yet on the flip side , they do have better disease resistance - so what kind of dollors do you put on that ?

 

Now corn  thats a diiferent cat - I thing that they must have used a country average - but here I would I think it would be closer to 15 to 20 percent higher - But even if it's only 11 % thats about 25 bpa cut for me - then add the less disease controll - like Northern leaf - Gray Leaf - what ever - so IF I had to go back to the OLD days corn then I may be looking at 25 to 30 bucks for a plane - then what about the weed control - Roundup saved a lot of money in the past years - + It takes a lot more management to raise a non gmo crop - Then you forgot about the cost of all that Tillage equipment you might run - I know , they give that stuff away - then what are you going to do when the EPA comes beating on the door you give you griff over all you dirt running down the river - Yep Prices would go up raiseing non GMO - But rememeber - them higher prices will come at a cost - It's not a free ride .
