Don’t Wait Till Spring! Five Reasons to Buy Ag Chemicals This Fall

Don’t Wait Till Spring! Five Reasons to Buy Ag Chemicals This Fall

When you’ve finally completed harvest activities, it can be awfully tempting to put off buying inputs until later. But you can support your bottom line and put yourself in great position to manage pressures in your fields next season by purchasing ag chemicals this fall.

Take a few moments to consider what kind of performance you got out of your weed, insect and disease control strategies this year. Will you use some of the same chemistries next year? 

Why you should buy inputs in the fall

If you have a clear picture of your management strategy for next year, you don’t want to miss out on opportunities available to you now. Here are five great reasons to stock up on ag chemicals this fall:

1. Get it while you can

If certain chemistries worked for you this year, chances are other farmers might have had similar success, too. By purchasing now, you can ensure you’re able to get the products you need without worrying about supply running low.

2. Don’t miss out on savings

Every dollar you save now goes toward your bottom line next season. You can achieve great savings buying chemical products in the fall as manufacturers and suppliers price their products to sell. 

Here at FBN, we’re running some amazing Cyber November deals in the FBN Direct online store through the end of the month to help you save big on your input needs.

3. Stay ahead of inflation

Inflation is a fact of life, and ag chemical prices are no exception. You might be able to save money on your inputs buying now and staying ahead of next year’s price increases.

4. Achieve a greater sense of security

Sure, it feels good to relax post-harvest and forget about growing crops for a few days. But it feels even better knowing you’ve already lined up your management strategy for next season. Buying now means you won’t have to stress nearly as much come spring.

5. Plan ahead for next season’s needs

Tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today, says a trusted proverb. Sitting down now to consider your needs—and build your strategy to address them—can help inform your ag chemical purchase decisions and eliminate waste next season.
