For the past few years I disc and plant a couple of acres for critters.
Deer, dove, turkey. For spring and summer it's lablab, milo, and iron clay cow peas.
I go to the same place in ATX, it's a general store that's been around a long time.
Never any problems getting planting materials. This year was different.
I asked for milo seed, not just milo or milo feed. Upon my request I was asked
for my satellite pictures of my pasture and my "plan" whatever that is.
I replied I had never been asked for this before and I just wanted some milo
for a food plot. The gentleman replied "oh yes we have milo feed, it's 8 bucks
for a 50lb sack, is that what you're looking for?" I replied, "does it sprout
and produce heads full of seed?" He replied "of course it does".
We settled on the feed and then he educated me. If you ask for seed, I have
to ask for your satellite photos and your plan, and that milo is 150 bucks
for a 50lb bag. Because it's all GMO now. But if you want milo feed, it's
8 bucks a 50lb bag, no questions asked.

Now we must use politically correct language just to grow a food plot.

It's a whole lot deeper and nefarious than political correctness..........

You can thank Monsanto for that. Plant a field of milo, corn, and it gets cross-pollinated with Monsanto 'roundup ready' from a neighbor or some other source, you better get a lawyer. Men in black suits will come to your farm and tell you they need to get DNA samples of your crops. It has happened to quite a few farmers and put them out of business...Coming to a field near you!

I reckon I should start adding another 1/2 acre to the plot and recoupe some "feed"
for next years planting. But how to protect against weavils etc? Last year I planted
milo I had left over, a couple of bags I stored in my garage. None of it came up.
The feed store said if you don't plant it quick weavils will destroy all of it within
a few months. Some countries have banned GMO. It seems MON has a monopoly on it.

Hey. Go ahead and skip the light stuff. If it does seed light and blow onto someone else's property, they might raise a fuss. If you're in east texas this aint gonna matter because we don't have any crops anyways. What I really want to tell you is to just plant all the clay deer peas you can buy and make sure the soil is right. The deer will sleep, eat, and poop in it, and then grow some huge antlers. It grows during the prime antler growth period if planted properly. I killed a buck that spent all summer in it and it had forks coming off of forks, 14" G2's, and it was only 4.5.

Interesting to learn about GMO's and MON. Didn't know about that. THF is educational today. clap

Its illegal to 'save' seed from one planting to the next using GMO from Monsanto. I'm sure you could get away with it if you don't talk about it on a public forum. It's patented and Monsanto has plenty of $ to prosecute. They've done it in the past. Now, saving bags that weren't used would be fine. Taking seed from your crop for next year-not fine, or I should say, could be BIG fine.

No it's illegal to harvest and sale from kepted over "patented" seed, that was around along time before GMO. The GMO stuff is mainly corn and some milo.
No GMO wheat is FDA approved. Most patented seed gets watered down after each planting, thus bushell production will go down with each replanting.

Regardless milo is very low on the perfered preference for deer.
I'd stick to legumes or forge version of oats.

GMO is a modified seed that either produces a compound that's toxic to insects but not people or the plants cells are resistant to a certain weed killer(mainly round up)

I hate Monsanto, they are ruining our food source and killing off bees. So many farms have been shut down because GMO crops accidentally end up in their fields by spreading from other farms. Monsanto sues them and takes everything, bunch of scum bags.

The fact that they have patients on plants is absolutely ridiculous.
