There are some limited warranty benefits associated with buying new seed.  With new seed, you get dealer agronomic support before and after the sale.  With the purchase of a Roundup® brand herbicide, you can participate in the Roundup Rewards® program, which has paid out over $500 Million to growers since 1997.  Buying new seed supports new innovations.  Monsanto's research and development spend in 2005 was $588 Million.  New trait introductions take 7-9 years for commercialization and cost $50-100 Million.  Be smart.  Buy New Seed.
