Share this article on:

Whether you’re thinking of joining the FBN community or are already a member and want to get the most out of your experience, here are 10 benefits of FBN membership.

Membership is free and open to everyone, including farm owners and operators, farm managers, farm employees, family members, and students interested in learning more about agriculture. 

1. An Exclusive Online Community of 75,000+ Growers

Connect with fellow farmers across the United States and Canada to share ideas, ask questions, and grow your network. 

2. Price Transparency Insights 

When FBN launched as a farmer-to-farmer sharing network, it disrupted the industry by providing price transparency on national ag products. Today, this transparency continues to help growers take control of their operations by making informed purchasing decisions. With each new farmer that joins the platform and contributes invoices or other pricing data, FBN’s price transparency insights become even stronger to help inform all FBN members.

3. 24/7 Online Shopping Access 

FBN offers a comprehensive portfolio of high-quality crop protection, crop nutrition, and animal health products so that you can shop from anywhere and at any time.

When you order your inputs through FBN, we’ll deliver qualifying agronomy and animal health purchases directly to your farm for free. Let us know at checkout which delivery day works best for your schedule, and we’ll get your order to you no matter how big or small. We have fulfillment and logistics centers strategically located across North America to offer you fast and reliable delivery. 

5. Actionable National and Regional Ag Data

Access unbiased, objective data analytics on the FBN platform. Tens of thousands of members have already entrusted us with their data, which we have turned into anonymized, aggregated information you can use to grow your ag operation. Your data is secure and never for sale.

6. Agronomic Support

Our team of certified agronomists is ready to answer your questions related to crop protection, seed treatments, plant growth regulators, and more. Each agronomist covers a regional territory and spends time in the field monitoring the latest pest pressures so they can tailor their agronomic support and product recommendations to your operational needs. 

You can also have peace of mind that they’re not commissioned and will not try to sell you on a particular product. Rather, they are available to partner with FBN members to share their experience and objective expertise. 

7. Guides, Reports, and Checklists

Access free guides, reports, and checklists that can help you grow your ag operation. FBN offers a growing number of downloadable resources on a wide range of topics to help you maximize your operational ROI, including:
