The next morning, Buck meets with his neighbor Bobby Biggs who’s crop is not doing well, ostensibly because of GMO. When Buck returns home, he gets a phone call from Ed Hollister who owns the silo where Buck stores his harvest. It turns out, LeFay has placed a lien on his crop, his land, and all his equipment due to assumed patent infringement and piracy. LeFay offers Buck a deal to sign a five year pilot program.
