6 Things You’re Missing If You’re Not Buying from FBN Direct®
When it comes to being a member of Farmers Business Network®, there are some definite advantages.
All you have to do is ask any one of our 55,000+ members and they’ll tell you why FBN® has not only changed the way they do business on their operation, but also helped them secure huge savings along the way.
Let’s take a look at the the short-list of what you’re missing by not buying your inputs through FBN Direct®.
1. Convenient, online shopping
One of the ways we are different from everyone else is that we offer our members the ability to go online and shop for the crop inputs they need. Right now, you can go to FBN.com and find herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, seed, animal health products like vaccines, antibiotics, implants, feed and more — if you’re growing it or raising it, there’s no better place to be.
2. Direct-to-farm shipping
Now that you’ve found what you need and made your purchase, you can arrange to have it delivered right to your farm when you need it. No need to get in the truck, drive to town and pick it up. We make sure you keep working. The best part is that you can choose your own delivery window to accommodate your timelines.
3. 0% input financing*
You can finance your input purchases with either an input loan or operating line of credit and not pay a penny in interest all season long*. With flexible financing options, you’ll be able to do more for your operation like pay for rent, equipment and repairs, labor and more.
4. Transparent pricing
We really shook up the ag industry when we introduced price transparency. Now our members can see market averages, quotes, and invoiced prices on hundreds of inputs so you have the best information when you buy, allowing you to save no matter who you buy from.
5. Products value priced
Browse the competitively-priced product selection at FBN Direct and you’ll see we sell both brand-name and generics. Often, they have the same active ingredient but the generic is priced lower than the branded product. You get comparable performance but at a better value.
6. Membership is free
Best of all, you can put all of these benefits to work for you today when you join over 48,000+ farmer members in the U.S., Canada and Australia and it won’t cost you a penny.
