Farmers begin reporting from the field

Growers take up the challenge, begin self-reporting about planting

By , gave farmers a call-to-action last week, to begin self-reporting from the field. Our newsroom is pleased to report that farmers took up that challenge and were Tweeting from the field all weekend - sharing their stories, experiences and pictures from their virtual office, the tractor cab.

While farmers are already Tweeting with the hashtag #plant13, this initiative seeks to enhance the experience by encouraging farmers to Tweet using the hashtag #fromthefield in addition to #plant13. The hope is to elevate the discussion from farmer to farmer and those who may be curious about looking into what farmers are up to in the fields.

The newsroom will be monitoring the self-reporting hashtag - #fromthefield and will share some highlights from those interactions with the hopes of reaching a larger audience.

We welcome suggestions or comments from you our reader and we hope that if you are a farmer reading this that you will take up our challenge! More information about the self-reporting project can be found by clicking the following story:
