    Add human intelligence and it's all sustainable. No need to tell others what they have to provide for you. Let me know when you open up your shop.

    Little testy there for a yankee. Thought you folks could handle the pressure a little better than that. Just curious, are you ever going to explain by what logic others should be expected to provide for all of the choices you wish to make? What do you plan to call your shop, btw?

    Maybe you and Acebird could go in together. You could call it No Coat Seed & Hurricane Bucket Company.

    So, as soon as it's over, you'll explain the logic. Correct?

    How about choice in what kind of seed you buy? With or with out a coat for example. Most farmers can do a better job of crop protection by spraying.

    You get more of it on the crop, when you need it, and less of it goes into the soil when compared to neonic seed coats (over 90%).

    There's are studies showing that non GMO/non neonic farming can get the same yields.

    That's not what we're discussing really.

    This is about the industrial Ag/Pharma seed that these outfits are using.
    at first you say you want a choice in what seed you can buy then suddenly you already know you had a choice but still your complaining about not having a choice.

So, again, if it's important, and apparently the choices aren't good enough right now, why aren't you setting up shop and promoting a solution instead of complaining about what others don't want to sell?
    Hey, I've figured it out!

    It's a riddle!

    In other words, you have no answer.

    Nabber, here's the thing, Home Depot is responding to petitions.

    I've got nothing to do with that (I never signed a single one concerning neonics).

    I simply agree with Home Depot's neonic proposal, the president's actions, and the findings of the international task force of scientists.

    I didn't limit anyone's choices.

    Thanks Nabber. For a long time I've been trying to figure if WLC really is a scientist, or not. Now I know.
    44 years, been commercial, outfits up to 4000 hives, now 120 hives and 200 nucs as a hobby, selling bees. T (mostly).
