We are excited to announce the launch of AcrePlan, a new digital crop chemical planning tool designed to put Farmers First® by streamlining the ag chem planning and purchase process. 

Created with input from FBN® agronomists, AcrePlan is the only digital chem program planning and purchasing tool currently available in the agriculture market. It is the next agronomic evolution of the FBN AcrePack.  

How Does AcrePlan Help Farmers? 

AcrePlan enables farmers to plan, price, and purchase individual passes for various chemical applications throughout the entire season and add it all to their cart at once, simplifying what can otherwise be a complicated, time-consuming process. 

Available AcrePlan pass options include: 

  • Burndown

  • Pre emergence

  • Post emergence

  • Fungicide and insecticide 

AcrePlan even does the math for farmers by providing transparent and upfront dynamic pricing: 

  • Per acre

  • Per pass 

  • For an operation’s entire chem program.
