If the corn and soy are GMO, then it should be no surprise that the yield is lower than expected. This is becoming common with regard to genetically modified seeds all over the world, with farmers in India taking their lives after their large investments and trust in GMO's. They are also leaving our soil and water in a dangerous condition causing erosion from all the petroleum based fertilizers and monoculture style farming.

My thoughts exactly. Its time to get smart and add to our environment so it will sustain us, instead of destroying that which feeds us. This chemical farming has destroyed too many acres of land, too many migrant farmers and is simply about greed and money. Support small beginner farmers who want to farm sustainably and build good soil, so we can feed our country for many years to come.
