a lot of lowest cost levitra hybrids one can't save the seed for replanting!!! This is kind of horrible news if they've got to buy new seed every year. This is kind of why Monsanto is so evil(Not that Monsanto is supplying the grain) I hope this isn't the case.

Vic, nelson: you folks need to read the article more carefully: "This rice, which is not genetically modified but a hybrid crop". Perfectly conventional breeding, folks; been going on for 10,000 years.
