We strive to offer the best return on investment (ROI) in the industry. This means that we offer great quality seed at a great price! Our seed production is managed internally and is produced/conditions using industry standard practices. We offer great pricing by cutting out unnecessary layers of the seed industry. .

It’s simple! Create a farm (you can add unlimited farms). Create your fields for each farm (upload your monitor files or boundary maps or we can do this for you!). Add events like planting and harvest to your fields (we will automatically do this from any monitor file you upload). Add other farm data like chemical invoices or seed tags to access different parts of the network. Once your data has been processed by our Data Operations team, you can log in and go to "My Operation" to view your account specific analytics. If you'd like a personal account walk-through, contact your rep to schedule a time that works for you or call us at 844 200-FARM!

Yes, FBN ® has a team of certified agronomists with expertise in crop protection and adjuvants, seed, traits and seed treatments, fertility, plant growth regulators and biostimulants. Our ROI-focused agronomists value your profitability, not just your topline yield. And because our agronomy team is not commissioned to sell any particular products, you receive independent objective answers to your agronomy-related questions. To connect with an agronomist, please contact your assigned FBN representative or call us at (844) 200-FARM.

We use farmer-submitted data in two ways: The first is to create independent product evaluations based on real-world performance data across millions of acres. We help farmers turn their chemical application data into insights about product selection, and provide opportunities for substantial savings. For example, we conducted a national analysis of crop-acres sprayed with glyphosate and found little yield difference between the acres sprayed with 4-pound versus 6-pound glyphosate (less than 2 bu/A variance for both corn and soybeans). The second way FBN® uses data is to create Price Transparency on hundreds of crop protection products. Farmers submit data about pricing in their local areas. Our latest Chemical Price Transparency Report found that herbicides and insecticides can account for as much as 15% of a farmer's variable cost of production. Some chemicals analyzed had as much as a 200% difference in price paid in the same state. We compare these prices to our standard, nationwide price - which is always the same for all FBN members, regardless of where they farm - to calculate estimated savings through FBN . All members can view our nationally-delivered price anytime right in their accounts at www.fbn.com/direct .

To ensure high-quality product, we work closely with reputable manufacturers with proven formulation capabilities. Most products sold by FBN Direct are formulated or packaged in the United States and inspected in one of FBN’s distribution centers before reaching your farm. We offer a guarantee that all products sold through FBN Direct will be as labeled. If any product is not as labeled, we will either arrange for a replacement product or provide a full refund.

Absolutely not. Nor do we share it with seed or input companies. The FBN network was created by farmers, for farmers, as a platform to give farmers the full power of aggregated data by democratizing farm information. FBN is a sharing platform for its members. Members who contribute data can access FBN 's aggregated analytics on seed performance, fertility performance, input price analysis, agronomic practice analytics and more. The data inside FBN is fully anonymized, meaning no one can see what you do on your farm and you can never see what another farmer is doing on their fields. Anonymized, aggregated analytics and seed performance help farmers make better, more profitable decisions. Thousands of farmers are "democratizing" farm data by crowdsourcing information through the FBN network. Democratizing information means putting information in farmers’ hands, equally and transparently. By networking thousands of farms together and creating a common platform for anonymized, aggregated analytics, farmers are creating their own information source, entirely by and for farmers. A single farmer can now have more information on hybrid seed performance than anyone else– helping them make better choices.
