Are you still debating what will inhabit your fields this growing season. If so, it’s crunch time. It looks like many will be planting more soybeans this year or keeping it similar to 2015.

Here are the poll results:

  • More corn, less soybeans – 7%
  • Less corn, more soybeans – 7%
  • More corn and soybeans – 6%
  • More soybeans, less corn – 27%
  • Similar to last year – 27%
  • No idea – 26%

Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, Do Iowa Caucus results reflect ag views?

In a new Agri-Pulse poll of how U.S. farmers and ranchers plan to vote for president, respondents overwhelmingly said they’ll support a Republican, and 40 percent of those are Trump supporters. That compares to 15 percent for Sen. Ted Cruz, 11 percent for Sen. Marco Rubio and 10 percent for Ben Carson. Now that we have the Iowa Caucus results, do you feel they are a reflection of agricultures view?
