Announcing The F2F Genetics Network
The Future of Seed Starts with Farmers
Today we are proud to announce the creation of the F2F Genetics Network™ to bring farmers radical innovation, transparency and economics through an entirely new model for seed development and purchasing.
F2F℠ creates an interactive farmer-breeder network, so farmer feedback will drive the development of new seed products. Farmers will actively drive the future of genetics, the performance of the seeds they plant, and the yield potential of their farms. So farmers are not just planting premium seed, they're shaping the future of the seed industry - Farmers First℠.
The Power of a Seed Network
F2F Genetics Network sources genetics from an independent network of breeders, university and technology companies, providing farmers with high performing seeds. After planting F2F seed, farmers provide a feedback loop back to the breeders, allowing us to continuously improve the performance of F2F genetics based on the needs of the farmers planting our seed.
Performance, Transparency, and ROI
Consistent with our Farmers First℠ philosophy, Farmers Business Network will be completely transparent with the performance, pricing and genetics of our seeds, allowing farmers to pick the seed that's best for their farm and situation. In year one, we'll share the performance and attribute information we have from plot trials, and in subsequent years we'll show the real-world performance of our seeds planted under real-life conditions.
And we'll be transparent about our pricing. We believe every farmers deserves a fair price on seed, so F2F Genetics will be available under the same national price for all US farmers. We reject zone pricing and complicated, time consuming rebate programs.
We'll even help you understand net revenue expectations (expected revenue - seed and chemical costs) so you can start to compare seeds based on ROI instead of just yield.
This year F2F Genetics will offer a range of Glyphosate Tolerate Soybean seeds and Conventional Corn hybrids that will work across a large swath of the Mid-Western United States.
