FBN®’s industry-leading carbon scoring tech platform, Gradable ® , will support two major projects under the first round of the Partnerships for Climate-Smart Commodities funding opportunity announced recently by Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. This is part of a $2.8 billion program to expand markets for climate-smart commodities.  Gradable will serve as the Measuring, Monitoring, Reporting and Verifying (MMRV) technology for an up to $90M grant awarded to Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) for quantifying verifiable greenhouse gas impacts of Climate-Smart Commodities and decarbonizing the agriculture supply chain. As well, FBN will  serve as a financial innovation partner to Field To Market on their up to $70M grant for the development of sustainable financing programs for farmers. “ FBN is thrilled to partner with both ADM and Field to Market on their innovative and ambitious programs which will reward thousands of farmers for adopting sustainable growing practices,” said FBN Head of Sustainable Business Steele Lorenz.  “Supporting these projects through both FBN’s technology that establishes a verifiable carbon accounting system for food and fuel and FBN’s sustainable financing expertise will enable the  development of markets for climate-smart commodities while decarbonizing agriculture–a win-win for farmers and the environment.” Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that these initial projects will expand markets to: Climate-smart commodities Leverage the greenhouse gas benefits of climate-smart commodity production Provide direct, meaningful benefits to production agriculture, including for small and underserved producers More than 450 project proposals were submitted by applicants in the first funding pool. The USDA increased its investment from the initial $1 billion Secretary Vilsack announced earlier this year based on the strength of these project proposals.  "As climate-smart agricultural policy and markets develop, it is critical that the concerns and perspectives of the farmer remain at the forefront,” said FBN Head of Government Relations Ken Baric.  “I am encouraged that USDA is endeavoring to do just that, and we will work aggressively to see that any future efforts from Congress, States, Regulators, and the private sector take a farmer first approach."   Copyright © 2014 - 2022 Farmer's Business Network, Inc.

Today we’re excited to announce a new partnership between Farmers Business Network® and ADM, a leader in sustainable nutrition and agriculture, that will expand availability of FBN ’s leading-edge digital farm business management platform, Gradable® , to ADM’s network of 55,000 North American farmers. The agreement will offer growers a comprehensive digital solution to manage their businesses and track their sustainable production data.  What does this new partnership mean for farmers?  By harnessing FBN ’s leading farm e-commerce and data insights in combination with ADM’s position as one of the biggest grain buyers worldwide, Gradable will empower farmers to identify new opportunities for profitability, including reporting and verification capabilities that will enable them to engage in regenerative agriculture programs and capitalize on growing market interest in low-carbon grain .  “Combining ADM’s scale and expertise and FBN ’s digital technology with the ability to efficiently, accurately, and consistently calculate and verify regenerative farm practices is powerful and promises to serve as a catalyst for the development of premium markets that reward farmers for sustainable production,” said FBN CEO Amol Deshpande. “This level of transparency is then transferred down the line to consumers, supporting demand for sustainable consumption.” As a leader in the decarbonization of the ag industry, ADM strives to meet demand for sustainably produced food, beverage and consumer products. The group’s new partnership with FBN will “expand our array of digital tools and offer our farmer partners a leading-edge platform to measure and verify regenerative agriculture practices, and help manage their businesses,” said Greg Morris, president of ADM’s Ag Services and Oilseeds business. “We’re excited to work with more farmers to find new opportunities for them to benefit from the production of differentiated, sustainably produced crops.” How does FBN ’s Gradable support farmers?  A modern, digital infrastructure designed to enhance the relationship between farmers and grain buyers, FBN’s Gradable platform supports secure and efficient grain transactions for production agriculture.  “ FBN ’s Gradable is not only the major digital innovation farmers need to identify opportunities to drive profitability, but it is also the carbon accounting system upon which a low-carbon ag economy can be built, with the potential to decarbonize the food and fuel supply chains on a gigaton scale,” explained FBN CEO Amol Deshpande.  By enabling farmers to effectively capture and analyze production data like carbon scores, the platform empowers farmers to increasingly participate in new sustainability markets and further monetize their operations. Farmers who utilize Gradable’s environmental scoring function in addition to adopting regenerative agricultural practices have produced grain with 20-30% smaller carbon intensity footprints.

Today we're excited to announce the start of construction on Farmers Business Network®'s new 198,000 square foot distribution facility in Saskatoon. Once completed in November 2022, the facility will be one of the largest agricultural product distribution facilities in Canada. Supporting logistics operations throughout FBN’s regional network, the facility will offer local farmers convenient access to faster, even more reliable on-site delivery of essential farm inputs exactly when they need them. FBN Improving Supply Access, Reliability for Canadian Farmers With the launch of our new Saskatoon facility later this year, FBN will have fulfillment centers within 400 kilometers of the vast majority of our more than 6,000 farmer members who represent 20 million acres in Canada. “We are very happy to welcome the Farmers Business Network Canadian logistics hub to Saskatoon,” says Saskatoon Mayor Charlie Clark. "It strengthens our ability to be a major food production epicenter, helping meet the demands of a growing world. This demonstrates industry confidence in our city and in the expertise and talent we have here.” Serving as the main fulfillment center for FBN in Saskatoon, the new facility at 123 Prospect Rd, Corman Park, SK, will also serve as a hub for smaller logistics networks throughout Saskatchewan and Manitoba. “This excellent location and workforce in Saskatoon are strong assets as we continue the expansion of the modern, reliable logistics network that helps farmers reduce uncertainty and drive profit potential,” says FBN Canada Country Manager Breen Neeser. Using Data to Proactively Address Potential Supply Shortages  At FBN , we understand how challenging it can be to get the supplies you need, especially amid shortages at critical times throughout the season. To address this issue, we’ve invested heavily in developing the first modern logistics network in agriculture to use data science in the creation of an agile system for the efficient movement of critical farm inputs. Our market analysis team harnesses the power of farmer data to directly contribute to farmer profitability. By aggregating and analyzing critical data points including regional weather patterns, national supply trends, direct farmer feedback, and other key market insights , FBN’s logistics network identifies potential shortages and can rapidly redistribute inventory to maintain sufficient supplies. Knowing that our facilities will remain stocked, farmers can expect consistent, convenient deliveries even when widespread supply chain disruptions jeopardize delivery reliability from older systems. “Traditional warehousing of inputs may put farmers at risk – in that the products they need have sold out and won’t be available until a new shipment arrives, damaging their profit potential for the whole season," explains Jack Cox, vice president of global fulfillment and logistics at FBN . "We use data to understand when a potential shortage is emerging so we can address it in real-time with our network of logistics centers, as happened earlier this year when FBN kept key inputs like Glyphosate in stock to serve our members during a shortage this spring.” [Need key supplies for your farm operations?
