Farmers Business Network® is both a growing community of over 30,000 Family Farmers, and a technology & service provider dedicated to helping those Farmers maximize their farm’s profit potential through an AgTech platform redefining value and convenience. The FBN® app is likely to become one of the most used tools on your farm since it is designed specifically to help you manage each stage of your farming business. Things you can do with the app include:
Comparing Prices & Buying Inputs with Confidence
Check out national average prices for inputs before you buy. Pricing insights are derived by farmers, like you, contributing to the network. And FBN makes those insights available in the palm of your hand. You can use those insights to understand different prices paid by other farmers in the network, and you can also buy the crop protection, adjuvant, biological and seed you need by simply adding products into your cart and checking out -- all in the app.
Taking Charge of Your Crop Marketing
Spreadsheets are great for accountants, but our crop marketing platform is packed with the features to help farmers be more organized & informed, and paired with tools specifically designed to keep you on top of this crucial business task. Add details about your planted acres, add additional details like transportation and storage costs, and we'll automatically calculate hauling & production costs to help you confirm your break even price. And since we've aggregated bids from thousands of buyers, you can see local bids from the app instead of making multiple phone calls trying to keep up with the local market. With one tap you can sort bids by distance or target price, then filter to see pricing for delivery now or in the future. If your buyer is a FBN partner, you can also submit offers in addition to receiving your contracts, scale tickets, and settlements all in the app. And if your buyer is not integrated we make it easy to upload and keep track of your documents. And of course, market intelligence for commodity markets is also built in to help keep you in touch with everything from futures pricing, to local weather, daily market insights, and a weekly grain markets podcast.
Having Maps & Field Notes When You Need Them
Each week we add a new set of EVI satellite images of your fields to the mobile app. Now, you'll be able to look at satellite maps on the go to check and confirm crop health. If you've added precision files to your FBN account, you'll also be able to pull them up from your cell phone. And as you or your team members walk fields you can snap photos, log notes and tag with specific GPS coordinates for future reference.
Joining a Community of Family Farmers
At our core FBN is a true community of farmers, and that is one thing that truly separates us from other farming apps. And since other farmers often have been faced with the same questions you have, we make it easy to help each other out with a members only forum. Ask questions, learn from the experiences of other farmers, and share how you might solve a challenge. Trade tips and advice -- Agronomy, Farmer Hacks, Machinery, Marketing, Nutrition, Planting, Seeds, Soils, Spraying, Hay & Forage, Livestock and more.
FBN Membership is free, so download the app and get started today.
