And while the network grows, we’ll continue to focus on developing solutions to some of Ag’s biggest challenges and creating a strong Ag economy that puts Farmers First®.

But you may be asking yourself, what do I get when I become a member?

There are a lot of advantages to becoming a member and as you’ll soon discover, the benefits of FBN membership are priceless.

1. Shop online for inputs

This is truly a game changer. Imagine being able to buy chemical, seed, fertilizer, and livestock feed right from your smartphone. Well, now you can.  When you order online or in the FBN app, you’ll enjoy convenient direct-to-farm delivery. We’ll deliver the products you need right to your farm. And what if we told you that when you shop our 24/7 online store, you’ll benefit from transparent pricing and cost savings? FBN cuts out the middleman and works directly with manufacturers and suppliers in order to sell high quality inputs at a fair price.  Find out even more reasons to buy your inputs online and what you’re missing out on. 

2. Select seed

You’ll be able to leverage the power of our member-contributed database and compare insights on both seed price and yield performance.  With over 1,400 hybrids and varieties of seeds in our database, you’ll have access to information that you won’t find anywhere else. Learn more about how to choose the right seeds for your farm. 

3. Manage contracts and bids

Keeping tabs on prices and managing bids can feel like a full-time job. With our online crop marketing platform, you’ll be able to start tracking cash grain bids and managing contracts. Find the most profitable bid and see what buyers and locations make sense for you. Learn more about our free tools and how to track and manage crop marketing activities.

4. Monitor your fields

Why pay for something that’s free? When you become an FBN member, you’ll be able to stay on top of potential issues in your fields by accessing free satellite imagery.  With the FBN mobile app, you can check your fields from anywhere. Get in-season yield predictions and performance recommendations specific to your operation. There’s never been a better way to scout your fields and assess crop health. 

5. Organize your operations

As a farmer, you have a lot on your mind and it can be difficult to stay organized. But it doesn’t have to be. With the FBN app, you can keep track of all your on-farm activities — from planting to spray applications, to harvest activities and more. And the best part is that all of your farm record keeping can be done all in one place.  

6. Chat with other farmers

Connect with your fellow farmers in our online forum, FBN Community, to get insights and share ideas that will help grow your business. 

“In my mind, FBN is the new co-op. The more you contribute as a member, the more everyone gets out of it. Everything really does have the farmer’s best interest in mind.”
