Raising Wheat Seed, Soybean Seed, etc.

I am interested in and want to break into raising seed for certain seed companies, but don't know where to begin. I've contacted my local co-op and they did not have much info for me on raising wheat seed or soybean seed.



Does anyone raise seed and what are the pros and cons of doing it for the producer?


How to chose what seed company to raise for? Does the seed company choose you to partner with?
