How do your chemical prices compare to what other growers are paying? Following this week’s Ag Chem Price Transparency Report, we’ve launched a completely new Price Intelligence tool for ag chem.

Our new system gives farmers never-before available insights into chemical pricing, active ingredient pricing among common product groups, and price trends over time for hundreds of products. Pricing insights on products are generated from actual retail invoices submitted by thousands of FBN farmer members and are able to compare products with the same active ingredient.

Benefits of FBN’s Price Intelligence Tool

As this year’s Ag Chem Price Transparency Report highlights, the persistent and widespread lack of transparency in the ag chem marketplace continues to present an ongoing challenge for farmers on both a regional and national scale, with farmers paying as much as 4 times as one another for similar products. 

Our new Price Intelligence tool empowers growers to:

  • See the full range of prices farmers are paying nationally

  • Benchmark your prices to easily compare against other farms

  • Track seasonal price trends

  • See how chemical prices change over time

Unlock Price Transparency When You Add a Chem Invoice

Price intelligence gives you confidence and power when buying chem.

To unlock pricing intelligence on hundreds of products, share a recent chemical invoice by emailing data@farmersbusinessnetwork.com or upload here from your account.

Price transparency is available on FBN product pages when members log into their accounts. Sign up for FBN membership here.

Farmers Helping Farmers Build Price Transparency

"Price transparency has been a core principle of FBN since our inception," said Charles Baron, FBN co-founder. “The benefits of being part of a network like FBN is that it keeps getting better as more farms participate — there is real strength in numbers.  Each invoice farmers add not only gives your farm more power, access, and control in the market, it benefits all members.”

The Price Intelligence tool is only as powerful as the data submitted by our farmer network. Farmers can submit data at any time. FBN Data Science aggregates and anonymizes all submissions to continuously update Price Intelligence throughout the year.  

Sharing your invoices is simple and secure. To contribute a crop protection invoice: 

  • Submit a photo of your invoice or forward an emailed receipt to data@farmersbusinessnetwork.com.

  • Upload invoices directly via the FBN app by clicking here
