Someone do a simple pot test and settle this argument.
It has already been field tested for generations, so why would we need a 'pot test'???
If there were some U. Paper, claiming that seed dies if it gets wet then dries out,, I would have to call them out and have them give a reason why it can take a month or longer for seed to germinate that is watered with occasional rains...
Would you believe the extension office that tells you "once a seed gets soaked ,,, it has to stay moist for 10 days straight or it will die???
Are you really willing to allow someone make you believe such an obvious falsehood???
