Do You Agree With These Numbers?

Jan 19, 2010

A recent poll on Top Producer’s homepage asked farmers if they plan to expand their machinery fleet in the coming year.


Here were the responses:


40.4% said yes


47.2% said no


12.4% said maybe


After what some call a blockbuster year for machinery sales in 2008, the past year was hard pressed to match up. Many are saying they forecast a rebound in 2010 in the ag equipment industry, but this poll doesn’t match that optimism.


If the word “expand” was replaced with “upgrade”, “adopt precision technologies”, “make a necessary trade-in”, (or all of these phrases just mentioned) would that have changed the results?
