Crop Tour in 140 Characters or Less

August 24, 2011
 

 

Throughout the Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour, Twitter has played a vital role in helping scouts and stakeholders communicate what they are finding in the field. The Twitter stream for the hashtag #PFTour11 (the official hashtag of the tour) has been changing constantly, relaying real-time information to the agriculture community. These are a few of our favorite tweets from the past couple days.
 
@CornFutures : Headed with @IndianaGrainCo and @cornbroker to Iowa City to meet up with the eastern leg of the tour. Grains pretty quiet. #pftour11
