Jim Cramer Prefers DuPont over Deere as a Farming Play

TheStreet's Jim Cramer says Deere & Co. "can't shoot straight" after its recent quarter and is now talking about why farmers are tapped out, which is why the stock is going down. Deere stock trades in a strange pattern, says Cramer, because it goes higher during the quarter and then the company lowers the boom on the conference call and the stock still goes higher. Cramer doesn't like to own Deere because he doesn't like its stair-stepped trading pattern. Instead, Cramer says he would go all-in with Dupont as a farm play because the company offers diversification.
