He recalls that 20 years ago, 50 per cent of the farmers still planted open- pollinated corn. Today, Steussy sells seed corn to 75 percent of the local farmers.' In the 10 years since Koilasch began selling seed corn, hybrids have improved and the choice of hybrids grown is much wider Now, corn can be bought for a specific number of days maturity and specific soil and weather conditions.
