Stop talking about Drought. Let's talk about Seed.

With rains from Issac washing away the stories of drought from this summer (while not really ending the drought, mind you) the new top Ag story is of gloom and doom for 2013. Seed companies are sounding the alarm of reduced supplies. I heard a story this weekend that Pioneer is working with South American farmers to produce seed corn this winter to make up for the lost supply by the drought-hit fields of Indiana. 

WJBC reports that not all seed companies are worried. Wyffels is reporting a better year this year than last. That just goes to show you, you can plan all you want to - it isn't man that is in control of the weather or farming.
