The FBN Network was launched in 2014 by a handful of producers as an independent, unbiased and objective farmer-driven information source. By providing data to FBN, producers gain access to the FBN Network, an anonymized and aggregated data analytics platform that enables producers to make better decisions on their farms.
Today, FBN is a continually growing network of tens of thousands of producers using 100% anonymous data-sharing & unbiased benchmarking to gain valuable and trustworthy insights on virtually all aspects of their farm operations including, optimal farm practices, seed performance, inputs pricing and commodity markets. The FBN Network also provides business specific tools that allow producers to put their own data to use in managing their business operations.
FBN takes data privacy & protection seriously– and is committed to only using data only to return value back to members. Read more about the FBN Data Protection Commitments.
