Anyone who is on the Internet can instantly access a discussion board. These on-line forums are used in a variety of different subject areas for people to ask questions or bring up a topic. Each conversation is organized into a thread where answers and comments are posted in response. Farmers can use a discussion board to grow their agricultural enterprise or to keep abreast of the latest developments in the field. They can start a new thread by asking a question and get others to add input into the conversation.
