Our Next Chapter - Farmers Business Network + Google Ventures

F has been honored to partner with some of the most entrepreneurial, future thinking farmers in the world. Over the last year, we set out to connect farmers and enable them to get the most powerful, trusted insights about their farms, inputs, and practices. We believe the power of farm information should reside with you, the farmer.

We’re excited to announce our newest partner, Google Ventures. Google Ventures has led a $15 million investment in FBN to take FBN’s technology and our members’ farms to the next level.

With the support of a company as transformational as Google, FBN can focus on connecting more farmers, building stronger regional networks, creating greater products, and providing the most trustworthy, independent, and unbiased information possible.

The idea that farmers should know how inputs are working in the real world, instantly track their own performance, easily manage and integrate their data, and do so cost-effectively -- to us, isn’t revolutionary, it’s common sense.
