Our local farm store is selling last years pasture seeds (lespedeza, brome, clover, mixed grasses, etc.) from Tri-Star Seeds that has a tag showing a date of January 2004. This seed does NOT have a discounted price....same price as it was last spring. Most of this seed remained on pallets all year inside the store. Is this seed good and will it germinate properly or will the germination rate be low? We don't know whether to take a chance on it or not. We want to overseed our pastures in Feb/Mar and the stores around here don't know when they will receive their spring 05 pasture seed order. We've called Tri-Star in Kansas and unfortunately they will not sell bulk seed to anyone but wholesalers. What do you need to be a wholesaler? How can a small farmer get a break on seed prices?
