AgriSecure, a turn-key organic platform company, and Farmer’s Business Network, Inc. (FBN), a leading independent farmer-to-farmer network, recently announced a major strategic partnership to enhance the profitability of organic grain production for farmers, and increase organic grain access and traceability for buyers.
As part of the partnership, Farmer’s Business Network, Inc. is investing in AgriSecure.
AgriSecure, based in Arlington, Nebraska, was founded by fifth generation farmers to partner with farmers to successfully scale organic grain production. The AgriSecure platform aims to simplify the transition from traditional farming to organic farming and increase producer profit potential and reduce risks associated with organic production. AgriSecure provides farmers with production expertise, technology systems and on-farm support to successfully manage organic farming at scale. The AgriSecure program includes the end-to-end management of organic acres, including organic certification support, whole farm and field-level management, agronomic advice, proprietary data platform access, and marketing access.
Farmer’s Business Network, Inc. is an independent farmer-to-farmer network, built by and for farmers. FBN members receive comprehensive farm benchmarking, real world seed performance, input optimization and pricing analytics based on over 150 million acre events of real-world precision agronomic data. The FBN network has grown to over 24 million acres of member farms in the U.S. and Canada.
“This is an exciting moment for AgriSecure and for U.S. farmers who are facing low profits and limited options,” said J.P. Rhea, Founder & CEO of AgriSecure. “Organic grains, done correctly, can allow growers to capture terrific premiums—we’ve proven it on our farms. The FBN network will supercharge our services with its FBN Direct input procurement network, buyer connections, and advanced data science capabilities. Together, AgriSecure and the FBN Network will have the platform, knowledge and scale to transform organic agriculture.”
