What’s the longest wait you’ve been told to expect for a new part, input, or piece of equipment?

(Kara Oosterhuis/RealAgriculture)

If the news is to be believed, some inflationary pressures are beginning to ease, and many supply chains are getting back to “normal” (whatever that means).

But if you’ve tried to find basic items such as children’s medicine, coffee filters, or some basic household items, you’ll know that there are still several supply chains that are either still broken or haven’t changed enough that the just-in-time, always there when you need it supply is just not there.

Take equipment parts, for example. Heck, take new pick up trucks, as another example. For some very small and very large items alike, farmers are being told they may have to wait weeks, months, and even years for some things.

So, we want to know: in the last three to six months, what’s the longest wait you’ve been told to expect for a back-ordered or out-of-stock item?
