How do I get started with FBN to improve record keeping?
07 May 2019
FBN® organizes your farm's files and anonymously networks it with thousands of other farmers to unlock its true potential. Getting value from files sitting on your desk or on a hard drive shouldn't be difficult, and now it isn't. Now you can stay organized and collaborate with your team on desktop or on the mobile app.
Upload precision data or field boundaries. FBN provides free, unlimited, and secure data storage, processing, and cleaning for all our members.
To upload data, log in to your account, click on Analyze at the top, then My Data in the left-hand menu. Under Precision Files, click + Add New to upload files from your computer.
A pop up with different monitor types will appear. Select your system and follow instructions from there.
Note: Please zip the data files/folders exactly as they would come off the monitor. You can upload an unlimited amount of data, just keep in mind that larger files will take longer to upload. If you are uploading a large file, you may want to disable your computer's sleep function, as this will disrupt the upload. If you have questions on how to do this, call our support line at (844) 200-FARM.
HOW TO USE FBN REPORTS
FBN Reports provide an accessible way to gain insights on your farm. You upload files and then we do the work for you to provide valuable insights on the go.
Find these reports in your FBN Account under the Analyze tab > Reports.
There are two types of reports:
Enterprise Reports: Planting, Harvest Summary, Annual Report, iHTA analysis and more! These reports give you insight and summarized information from your farm.
FBN Reports: These reports provide analysis and insight made possible by a network with thousands of farmers and millions of acres. View reports that highlight the differences in chemical prices across the country, or top performing practices. We've generated many reports over the years so you'll be sure to find a wealth of information inside.
HOW TO ADD TEAM MEMBERS
Many farmers who join Farmers Business Network to help organize their files and improve collaboration have multiple workers on their farm. It's easy to give your team members full (or partial) access to your account. Learn more by reading How do I create sub-accounts?
