The FBN network does a very old thing in a new way.
Farmers have been sharing information and learning from one another since the dawn of agriculture, it's one of the very roots of human civilization. The FBN network uses data from precision equipment and other sources, then connects you with thousands of elite growers from around the US. FBN turns the world into your plot trial by anonymously aggregating and analyzing millions of acres of farm data through the FBN analytics tools.
Information about your farm is never visible to other FBN members, no one can see what you do on your fields, and your data is never sold. By participating in FBN, you'll receive comprehensive agronomic analytics, reports, and mapping on your own farm, and can also access this pool of aggregated, anonymized cleaned data on things such as seed performance, performance benchmarking, crop & market trends and input prices.
By tapping into thousands of fields and millions of acres of data, farmers can realize the power of a scale of information that has never before been available to farmers - all created by and for other farmers. That's what we call, Democratizing Data. Farmers, not the industry, deserve the benefit of aggregated information Meaning you can farm with higher confidence, and gain insights into the best products and practices that could increase your yields and profits.
FBN analytics can work on dozens of crops and integrate over 60 types of precision software. Many farmers join FBN with their friends to create local agronomic data clusters. Agronomists and trusted advisors can also use FBN analytics to manage their client's farm data and produce customized analytics.
The FBN network creates a future for farmers that is independent, data driven, transparent, and fair with real competition for your business. It all boils down to more profits for independent family farms and better outcomes for food consumers.
Here are some examples of how aggregated data drives better decisions:
