FarmTrade.com is a service that allows members to view price ranges for eighty of the most highly traded active ingredients (AI) and their equivalents. Membership is free and the site is is seeing brisk business this season.
“A customer bought $30,000 worth of chemicals recently and told us the best quote he had received on the same package of products was $60,000,” says President Jeff Stow. “Check FarmTrade.com before you buy.”
Checking as the season moves on is a good idea, since products like Mesotrione (same AI as Callisto®), Lauis®, Flumioxazin (same AI as Valor® SX), Sulfentrazone (same AI as Spartan®), and Authority® products can drop throughout the season.
