Why Our Work Matters
What We Do
The modern farmer faces a wide range of complex issues every day. They spend time tending to soils, tracking crop growth cycles and operating heavy machinery, while keeping an eye on financial budget.
The FBN network helps level the playing field for farmers with unbiased information, profit enhancing farm analysis, network buying power and new crop marketing opportunities.
With the use of data-analytics, farmers are able to make data-driven decisions and obtain objective information on their seeds, soil and fertility on their farms and other farms around them, anonymously. We’re also helping farmers to rethink their crop marketing planning and execution, reduce their risk through data-backed crop insurance and reduce their health coverage costs. We’re a one-stop shop to help their business thrive.
The FBN Network came about when farmers wanted to develop an independent, unbiased and objective farmer-driven information source — no marketing fluff, just the facts on raw performance. By working together, these farmers knew they could learn vastly more than by looking only at their own farms, thereby unlocking the true power of the precision farm data they’d paid for. When these innovative farmers met with technologists, scientists and entrepreneurs, this dream became a reality - Farmers Business Network. Now, what started as the dream of a handful of farmers in 2014, has spread to a network of thousands of the best farmers managing tens of million acres in just a few years. When farmers connect, farmers win - and the services, technology and network keep growing.
