Interactive tool helps growers share conditions.

Spring weather may be unpredictable, but there’s one task you can do any time, rain or shine. Feedback From The Field, Farm Futures’ interactive tool lets you share what’s going on in your fields 24/7. And it’s optimized for smart phones, so you can update conditions whether you’re in the office or out in the field.

Click this Feedback From The Field link to enter your data. For starters, we want to know how planting and emergence are going.  You can also rate crops in your area as they emerge. We’ll update reports weekly with an interactive map that lets you see what other growers are saying around the country.

Feedback From The Field wasn’t meant to be a scientific survey. But it’s proved a useful tool in alerting growers to what’s happening around the country in real time. And, yield estimates based on harvest results have come close to USDA’s official estimates thanks to more than 1,200 contributions.
