The costs of major farm inputs such as feed, fertilizer and animal health products can be reduced if farmers provide their suppliers with early demand information and coordinate their purchasing decisions in local groups. The FarmHedge app improves this information flow between farmers and suppliers. By reducing the operational costs of suppliers, farmers using the FarmHedge app will benefit through discounts applied to input prices. Suppliers encourage farmers to book using FarmHedge by making two discount levels available.
This is the minimum discount level that applies to all individual bookings on FarmHedge. It is the cost saving above the regular price of the product.
Once a FarmHedge deal is fully cleared by a group of local farmers then the individual discount is replaced with a higher group discount.
