for posting. I really hadn't thought real far on the matter. I know in the small town I was raised there was a corn producing seed company. Their seed was "Certified".

some of the stuff I get from those 'low labor cost' countries makes me wonder if we really do always get good F1 hybrid seed.
I would think that tomato seeds, like some other flower seeds, once a good variety was stabilized, that had good disease resistance, etc., then the seed could easily be grown commercially. But I understand what you are saying, but I would think even today that varieties like Muletrain and Boxcar Willie can so easily be grown commercially, that there is, or would be, some money in it.
