Hello Growers:
Some of you may be concerned about the recent acquisition of Seminis Seeds by Monsanto (lots of background at http://www.fedcoseeds.com/seeds/monsanto.htm). Most seed companies will not be indicating which varieties they offer are from this company (Fedco Seeds may be the one exception - http://fedcoseeds.com/). The following list is as complete as currently available; though it does not show all veggie varieties from Monsanto, most of the varieties from Seminis are here.

Pass this on to any growers that you know who might be interested.
