Seed prices for 2016

All,

What has been your experience so far in buying seed for 2016? Are companies budging at all on price?

Thanks,

Re: Seed prices for 2016

Gil, the seed companies aren`t budging, but the DSMs will take out of their own pocket to get your sale.  That isn`t a good business model of forcing the salesmen to cannibalize each other, sooner or later seed co`s have to come to the realization that the party`s over in farming.

Thx, that's kind of the gut feeling I've had on seed prices. Will look into this the next few weeks some more.

Re: Seed prices for 2016

Gil,

My Son went to a winter seed meeting yesterday and the presentation was geared totally toward teaching the producer all of the ways to cut expenses other than seed costs..........  I think they see it coming but want everything else cut first......... Not sure if they will expect farmers to plant by hand their $250 per bag seed....
