This was unheard of, so the local news media wanted to interview him.
The reporter asked, “What is your secret?” “Where did you get this special seed from?”
The farmer said, ““I developed it” after years of farming, I developed a type of seed that will produce award-winning crops. You now see the fruits of my nurturing.”
The reporter asked, “are you going to share it with your neighbors?”
The farmer said, “Absolutely!”
The reporter taken aback asked, “Why in the world would you share your award winning corn seed with your neighbors?”
The farmer said, “Well, you’ve got to understand how corn is pollinated. “
“It’s pollinated from neighboring fields. And if you’ve got fields around you that don’t have this top-quality corn, your field is not going to grow top-quality corn either.”
“So if my neighbors’ fields grow really strong corn, I will have awesome corn. And that’s how I’ve won the “Best Corn Award” for the last four years.
