Real-time intelligence can mean the difference between breaking even and making money—especially when it comes to market-moving information. Three years ago, we launched a new way to capture intelligence, the Farm Journal Pulse.

The national panel uses text message polls to share opinions and input from farmers and ranchers across the country. Your answers are anonymous, but your responses are valuable in providing an accurate snapshot straight from the farm—in real time. As a member of the national panel, you also receive the overall results directly to your phone.

We’ll report on what we learn and use the information to help guide content and events. Many of our most popular efforts today—the Farm Journal Test Plots and the Legacy Project, for example—are a direct result of farmers telling us what’s on their minds and asking us to provide more information. Quite simply, hearing about what’s going on across farm country helps us do a better job of helping you.

I’d like to personally invite you to join the national panel and become part of the Farm Journal Pulse.

Participating is easy. Twice a month, on Wednesdays, we’ll send you a question via text. You can answer by texting back one letter or number.

To learn more, you can visit www.FarmJournalPulse.com. Or, better yet, get your phone out and text the word “Pulse”* to 31313 to sign up. I’d be honored to have you on our team.

If there is something you’d like me to ask fellow farmers in a future text poll, please email your suggestions to [email protected].

Here’s to a safe planting season.
