A comprehensive digital platform will offer business management and sustainability data collection solutions to producers across North America.
ADM, a leader in sustainable nutrition and agriculture, and FBN (Farmers Business Network® FBN®), a global farmer-to-farmer network and AgTech company, announced that they had signed an agreement to expand availability of FBN’s leading-edge digital farm business management platform, Gradable, to ADM’s network of farmers across North America, offering 55,000 growers a comprehensive digital solution to manage their businesses and measure sustainable production data.
“ADM is leading in the decarbonization of our industry, meeting demand for food, beverages and consumer products that are produced sustainably from seed to store shelf. Last year, we committed to reducing our Scope 3 emissions 25 per cent by 2035. Just last May, we committed $20 million in incentives for farmers who use cover crops to improve soil health, prevent runoff and reduce carbon emissions. Now, we’re taking yet another important step by partnering with FBN to expand our array of digital tools and offer our farmer partners a leading-edge platform to measure and verify regenerative agriculture practices, and help manage their businesses. We’re excited to work with more farmers to find new opportunities for them to benefit from the production of differentiated, sustainably produced crops”, said Greg Morris, president of ADM’s Ag Services and Oilseeds business.
FBN’s Gradable technology platform was developed to provide a modern digital infrastructure to strengthen the relationship between grain buyers and farmers, as a new era emerges requiring efficient, transparent, and secure grain transactions for production agriculture. Gradable’s digital infrastructure does this by connecting farmer and buyer experiences into a single, secure technology platform.
