Top New Twitter Hashtags for Farm Topics

From JPlovesCotton:

I just realized that there are quite a few hashtags we are using in the ag and farm community on Twitter that aren’t on the post I previously did. And since hashtag use isn’t always well understood, it seemed like it may be helpful to some to pull together a short list as a resource.

#agnerd – Things that you must be deep into ag and sometimes ag social media to enjoy sometimes are better shared. Lots of fun here but also useful tips.

#agblog — I wrote a post about this one when the idea came to me but it is basically a place to put first-person ideas that are published to blogs. With the number of farm bloggers we have, its a busy tag!

#agmobile — Out on the farm working in the field? Well snap a quick photo and tag it with #agmobile. Gives a great feel for what’s happening on the go.

#agproud — This one is a great tag. If you are proud of what is happening in agriculture, Ryan Goodman has created the hashtag, Facebook page and blog that brings you together with other like-minded folks who are proud to be part of agriculture.

#agedu and #ageduchat — Teachers and other educators who are focused on agriculture education or include agriculture in their coursework use these to trade ideas. The chat session is held the first and third Sundays from 7 p.m. to 8:30 and are moderated by @AgEduChat (which is Drew Bender (twitterblog) and Amanda Sollman (twitterblog).

There are a few days of the week that a few folks have set as themes. Since I have a decidedly cotton thing going on, I enjoy #TextileTuesday but I see some of the corn crowd using #cornsTALKwed too.

Some of the hashtags included in that previous post that are still useful include #agchat/#foodchat, #harvest10/#plant10, #farm, #ag, #oink/#moo, #thankafarmer and I use #farmersROCK or #cottonrocks on occasion (really anything with rocks on it). Tim Zweber is a fellow creative hashtagger as well…. never know what we will come up with.

What ag hashtags have I missed that you find useful?
