The 2004 crop weather proved to be a record setter. A like weather pattern occurs about once every 10 years. It may not be the “best” strategy to assume that next year will be the same and that the best crop varieties during the 2004 season will be the best in 2005. Then again, do not fully rule it out; there is a 1-in-10 chance it will happen again.
