Anything you want. When you submit an invoice, email or quote for a product, you will receive a search token. You can use this token to search for any product. You will see results for that product and alternative products with the same active ingredients and concentrations. The principle is one of fair information exchange, submit a price to get access to a price, it's that simple
No, if you would rather you can simply enter the price you have paid or been quoted. However, doing so will only get you access to prices submitted by others using similar methods (unverified pricing). To access the 'verified' price information, we need evidence of price paid or quoted, this can be an invoice, quotation, email even a text message. All are easy to upload via your smartphone on Farm Compare.

We will use averaged prices to promote and grow participation in Farm Compare. The more prices it receives the more useful it becomes for farmers. The aim is for farmers to help farmers, forcing transparency in the marketplace.
Crop Protection is one of the biggest variable spends on farm, at around £680 million last year. Price tracker threads have demonstrated large price differences, but contributors are often reticent to reveal supplier details for fear of upsetting or losing their supply. Buying groups have historically been shrouded by secrecy over prices paid, this only benefits suppliers and not farmers. Farm Compare aims to shift the balance of power back to the buyer where it belongs. Farmers are often left guessing at fair market prices or hearing that others pay lower prices, but without knowing where from or how? Few have the time or knowledge to navigate all the product and supplier options and request quotes from every available supplier. Farm Compare aims to simplify your ability to source the best price for the products you need quickly and efficiently
You can search for product information as a guest. However, to compare prices you will need to become apart of the community. We don't need your name or address, you can register anonymously with just an email address which is never shared. If you need help doing this simply give us a call on 01543 396 770 or email [email protected] and we'll be in touch with you as soon as possible.
