Our Inputs program leverages the strength of farmers’ collective buying power to generate the best prices on inputs and other supplies.

Inputs for Growers

How It Works

By helping farmers analyze and forecast inputs being purchased for the season, we are able to purchase crop inputs at a much better price and pass on 100% of the savings back to farmers.

We help retailers pre-plan their seasonal demand and in turn avoid excess or wasted inventory.

Our forecasts also enable farmers to buy ahead of time, adding to savings gained upon the procurement of crop inputs.

How We Do It

With the help of our proprietary technology, we are able to use the historical purchase data of farmers to forecast needs and optimize order processes.

Our wide network of farmers and retailers helps us get the most competitive pricing. This enables farmers to save big and look into other crop input products and solutions that would have otherwise been overlooked due to costs associated with inadequate planning.
