Returning Value For Your Data
Our most important job is protecting your data. But what we love doing is returning value back to you.
Here’s How We Return Value
Our goal is to help you drive a positive ROI. When members share their data, we put it to work by returning reports and tools with exclusive insights.
Operations Reports & Features
These features and reports focus on maximizing the value you receive from your precision data files. Those files are seamlessly converted into annual farm reports, providing you much deeper insights, and allowing you to better use your data to develop a strategic plan for your operation.
Personalized PDF reports summarizing your efforts and benchmarking you to other FBN® Members, delivered to you throughout the year. Reports include planting activities and practices, harvest summary (activities including, varieties, yields, moisture & acres), Regional Seed Report, and an Annual Report – detailing yields, field performance details, and numerous other details from the year that can impact your bottom line.
Every 5-7 days you’ll receive three layers of imagery, each giving you a unique perspective of individual fields on your operation. Our automated image comparison will trigger notifications to inform you of changes that indicate problem areas, enabling you to direct your scouting to very specific field areas. You can access images going back 12 months.
