Farmers confront many challenges as they strive for profitability, but the persistent and widespread lack of transparency in the chemical market quickly adds substantial costs to already expensive farming essentials.

  • Enlist One®

  • Roundup PowerMAX® 3

  • Atrazine 4

Across a wide range of ag chemical products, regardless of geography or product popularity, farmers continue to pay a wide range of prices for the same exact product.
