How Old is Your Planter?

Farm Journal Pulse

How old is the planter on your farm?

Sign up to be part of the Farm Journal Pulse, a text message poll of farmers and ranchers, and cast your vote. Participating is as easy as answering two quick poll questions per month via text message from your mobile phone.

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: How old is your primary planter?
  • Brand New
  • 2-5 yrs
  • 6-10 yrs
  • 11 or more yrs

On Thursday, you’ll receive a tabulation of responses and a link to an interactive U.S. map, where you can view national results. 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 on Thursday.)
See the results from previous Farm Journal Pulses:
