Farm Journal Pulse
You're invited to be part of the heartbeat of our new national producer panel that speaks up and speaks out. Participating is as easy as answering two quick poll questions per month via text message from your mobile phone.
The Farm Journal Pulse polls farmers and ranchers for their straight-from-the-farm opinions and crop progress updates. 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.
You take a moment to send an anonymous response, and the results are tallied. The next morning you'll be able to see how your answer compares with the rest of the nation. There’s no charge, but as always, any text message fees in your phone plan appl.
Latest Farm Journal Pulse Question
