We Want Your Non GMO Corn
"We are establishing markets for 2014 and 2015. Your corn must be 98.5% purity. How do we establish that?
Send your grain(a pint of corn) samples to:
N27 BioAg Sciences
209 West Jessup Street
Rushford, Minnesota 55971
The cost is $150 per sample, this is not an inexpensive test to ensure buyers are getting a pure product. Seed can be tested, too. If you start out with 95% purity, it isn't going to improve in the field.
I am sending them a sample tomorrow. There is nothing else I can do right now with the wet weather and I want to see what they say my purity is.
I've seen "non GMO" seed samples test positive for GMO. I want to see how mine tests.
A 50 cent premium would be very handy right now to many local farmers who plant non-GMO corn.
On another note, I did get the Walmart Nitrogen link to work. Click on Global Sustainability if you are interested, its a well designed video. Tim Richter from Iowa and also farms in Missouri gives a plug for Adapt-N about 31 minutes into the video. It is interesting to see how Walmart is taking interest in this, whether it is nitrogen, GMO or non GMO.
