I would assume that seeds which don't reproduce would be considerably
less expensive than seeds which can be reproduced. (I don't know how
well modern hybrid seeds can be reproduced over multiple generations.)
Selling a reproducible seed, you have to make all the profit in one sale
for multiple generations of seeds. Selling seeds which last only for
one generation allows you to get by with a much smaller profit.
