05 April 2022, CA: Have you ever thought about contributing and sharing data with your fellow farmers? Imagine being part of a network of like-minded farmers who contribute and share data with one another. FBN is dedicated to helping farmers maximize their profit potential with a data and technology platform.
But what does that really mean? It means that farmers in our network gain access to insights from a global farmer community to make confident decisions that will impact your bottom line.
So how does it work? And how do you get started?
Here are 4 reasons that you should consider adding invoices and seed labels to your FBN account.
1. Contribute directly from your phone
Adding seed invoices, chemical invoices and seed labels into your FBN account is easy. All you have to do is snap a pic of your invoice or label with your phone and upload it directly to your account via the FBN mobile app. https://fast.wistia.net/embed/iframe/38y5hwu0n1?autoplay=false
2. Unlocks value for you
When you submit chemical invoices, you’ll get access to chemical price transparency. When you submit seed invoices, you’ll get access to seed price transparency.
When you submit seed labels, you’ll receive a personalized report on other brands selling your varieties and b) access to “Same Variety As” feature in Seed Finder.
Now, you’ll get valuable insights into what you’re paying vs. what your neighbors are paying for both chemicals and seeds.
You’ll also have access to analyze your ROI right from your FBN account with digital tools that will help identify your cost per acre and cost per bushel. https://fast.wistia.net/embed/iframe/e0rie4iqaf?autoplay=false
Looking for a tool that will provide information on seed price transparency or find seed products that are labeled as something different? The Seed Finder tool gives you access to seed price, performance and one of the largest agronomic information databases in agriculture. All of this information is powered by millions of acres of real farm data.

The Yield Potential tool will not only help you identify the possible yield output of products that have been uploaded into our network but also will showcase the potential revenue opportunities of each product, specific to your fields.
