Following Shakespeare’s line … to sample or not to sample, that is the question. Farmers are evenly divided on this field practice, whether to sample or not to sample. The associated rationale of sampling or not sampling is independent of any logical process or intelligence because sampling or not sampling each have consequences.
For the record, I am a sampler. When it comes to potato fields, pea fields, beans, sweet corn and No. 2 yellow, I sample. I have friends, neighbors, next of kin who do not. This for the same reason I do sample never mind how illogical this sounds.
