Tony Ghepardo buys sweet corn seed with no way of knowing it is a new type of seed. He buys five pounds, figuring that will be enough to make up for what the deer will likely eat. But curiously, they don’t touch it—neither do the birds or raccoons. But he does.

This goes on for years without any cure or definite answers. Finally, one day Tony sees a glimpse of what could be the problem while watching a Russian news program.
