The 2014 Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour kicks off in earnest first thing tomorrow morning. Odds are if you’re reading this, you’re not actually on the tour. That’s OK – there are still three ways to stay caught up throughout the week as the tour unfolds.

1. Ongoing coverage will appear on the Crop Tour landing page on AgWeb. Get daily updates that include field prognoses, photos and more.

2. Daily updates not good enough? Get up-to-the-minute analysis on Twitter by following hashtag #pftour14. You’ll find dozens of people using that hashtag throughout the week, but here’s a "cheat sheet" of who to follow to get you started:

• Eastern Leg: @BGrete @MNWeedWizard @carson_TheKid
• Western Leg: @ChipFlory @JasonFranckNC @emily_floryag14
• Results: @JuliJohnston @MeghanPedersen

3. Still not satisfied with the interactivity? Replicate your own trial using the same exact methods as the Crop Tour scouts. Instructions on how to do that are here.

Happy scouting!
