Online Crop Input Buyers Tilt Toward Higher Acres, Younger

In mid-October 2019, Farm Journal conducted its second Crop Input Purchase Behavior Study. The survey targeted farmers with 500+ acres of corn and received 387 responses from 36 states.

Based on the 2019 responses, 37% of farmers who don’t buy online have 1000 acres or less. While 30% of the respondents who buy some inputs online have 1000 acres or less.

Additionally, from the 2019 results, 54% of all respondents are under 60 years old, whereas of online buyers, 65% are under 60 years old.
