Take control of your crop input plan with FBN® Hectare Packs, a revolutionary new feature now available to farmers from FBN Direct®. By helping you strategise, select products and save, Hectare Packs help you take greater control of your crop input plan, streamline your input planning process and help you save money by combining products for up to 5% of additional, instant discounts (without rebates!). 

How Do I Build a Hectare Pack? 

Ready to build your Hectare Pack? Here’s how the process works: 

1. Pick Your Pack 

First, select a crop based on the available options in your country. For farmers in Australia, the following Hectare Pack crop options are currently available: 

After you’ve chosen your preferred Pack, input your hectares so the tool can customise your Pack building experience to your specific needs. 

2. Select Your First Base Product

After selecting your crop, choose your first base product. The Hectare Pack tool allows you to see both the price per litre and price per hectare for your chosen base product.

3. Slide to Set Your Rate

Using the slider tool on the page, adjust your rate options to see how you can adjust your usage and price. 

4. Choose Your Package Type

Once you’ve selected your preferred rate, you can choose your base product package size for your Hectare Pack based on the options available. 

Hectare Packs are particularly unique and useful to growers thanks to the tool’s ability to automatically optimise for the lowest possible amount left over for that crop, meaning you don’t have to do the complicated maths to determine exactly how much to order or the best size for your needs. The tool does it all for you by making customised recommendations for your specific operation. 

5. See The Product Description

Read through the product description on the right side of the screen to review more details about your selected product, including: 

  • Specific product notes and safety guidelines

  • The product label with intended usage notes and other information from the manufacturer

  • Available package sizes 

6. Stack Your Savings

The Hectare Pack tool automatically calculates the applicable discounts for you and shows your total savings per hectare throughout the Pack building process. Save an additional 1% on your base herbicide product, such as Glyphosate, for every additional product added to the Pack, up to 5% off. The FBN Hectare Pack tool automatically calculates these discounts for you and shows your total savings per hectare.

7. Add Your Pack To The Cart

Once you’ve added any additional products you’d like to include in your Pack to take advantage of all possible discounts, you’re ready to add your Pack to your cart. By hovering your mouse over the discounts section at the bottom of the cart view, you can see how much you’re saving based on the products you’ve added to your Pack.  

8. Pick Your Delivery

Once you’re ready to check out, choose your preferred delivery address and delivery date. At this time you may also update an existing address or add a new one to make sure your delivery goes to the correct location. 

9. Pick Your Flexible Way To Pay

Finally, select your preferred payment method, which could include credit or debit card, bank transfer or cheque, or commercial trade credit (28 day terms). After you’ve selected your preferred payment option, you’re ready to submit your order. 

That’s it! With more control of your crop input plan, you can approach next season with confidence. Try it for yourself by building your Pack at today.
