What first started it I don't know. Now it's probably feeding off itself. Also there are other sites that serve the same function where exchanging advice and information is more prevalent.
Some of us still trying to get the crops in!! Haven't had much time to fiddle around on the computer. Now... how were your crops and what brands/traits did the best?
IT goes in cycles. I noticed last year that around december through feburary and march it picked up quite a bit, then it goes down again as people start to get back into the grind and most that continues through to the next december. Im on here pretty much everyday, but most of the questions i have are more machinery type questions or the such so i usually go to Agtalk or combine forum for those questions where there are alot more people who might have had experience will the piece of machinery im talking about. Dont get me wrong there have been some good discussions on here. But one thing that made this site so great has somewhat hampered it too. Being that most of us are young or beginning farmers if you ask a question alot of us may have a hard time answering it due to just inexperience. Also there has been alot of immaturity that has shown through in some of our members and that has really turned me off.
How can we improve your experience here? We do have a lot of resources over at Agriculture.com, if that's of any interest to anyone, namely our forums there. They're a good place to answer questions, especially our Marketing Talk and Machinery Talk groups. Otherwise, let me know how else we can improve your Farmers for the Future experience! I'm open to any ideas!
