w much does cash rent run in your area?
This week’s Farm Journal Pulse
, a text message poll of farmers and ranchers, will try to shed some light (and honesty) on the price for renting farmland this year.
By partnering with Commodity Update
, the leading provider of agricultural information to mobile phones, Farm Journal sends you the question via a text message on the first and third Wednesday of each month.
This Wednesday's question will be: What is the highest cash rent per acre you pay?
On Thursday, you’ll receive a tabulation of responses and a link to an interactive U.S. map, where you can view national results, as well as the results near you. Results are anonymous and you quickly see the overall sentiment and how your opinion fits in. (Even if you don't sign up to participate, you can view what others replied by visiting www.FarmJournalPulse.com
