What do America's Best Farmers do in December?

November 28, 2016

Farmers Business Network is made up of America's best farmers, and the best farmers in FBN, go to Farmer2Farmer: American Entrepreneurs!  We are excited to welcome our members to Omaha for a conference that has been described as "where the future of agriculture finds it's voice."

Great farmers are constant learners, innovators, and experts in their craft.  The best farmers learn from other great farmers and shared insights about cutting edge technologies and business practices.  Being an analytics company, we dove into our data set to quantify exactly how much better the farmers who came to Farmer2Farmer last year did in 2015 (2016 yield updates rolling in daily). 

Will attending Farmer2Farmer ensure top yields in 2017? Of course not, but it will put you in the company of some of the best farmers in America so you can maximize your chances of a stellar season.

October 31, 2016

Farmers across the US pay radically different prices for the exact same seeds. What impacts do "zone pricing" and discounting have on the prices you pay for seed?

Stay tuned for upcoming Seed Price Transparency products from FBN and expanded research!
