, the first and only online exchange for crop protection products, begins 2017 with steady growth after a record breaking 2016.  FarmTrade was founded in 1998, under the name XSAg, changing its name to Farmtrade in the Summer of 2014.

“We are thankful to our 100,000 members and clients for trusting us with their farm chemical needs,” says Jeff Stow, president of FarmTrade LLC.

Stow attributes FarmTrade’s continued success to its unique approach to a complicated marketplace.  “Our value proposition is savings, transparency, and simplicity.” Stow explains, “FarmTrade is a completely free service for buyers, and sellers pay a fee only on goods sold.  There is no cost to register as a member and members have free access to price ranges for more than eighty of the most highly traded active ingredients and their equivalents.  Members also receive the FarmTrade e-mail newsletter which offers continually updated chemical trading ranges as well as industry insight from our knowledgeable FarmTrade staff.  We welcome members to call to discuss pricing and current trends and our no pressure sales approach makes it an easy call.  While our goal is to win your business, we are happy to have the opportunity to serve our members with pricing updates and industry trends.”
