We want you to know who you’re doing business with.
At AgVend, we believe in simplifying the purchasing process for farmers by offering straight-forward, competitive pricing on the inputs you use every day. We don’t believe you should have to choose between fair prices and peace of mind, which is why we hold our suppliers to the highest levels of customer service and product quality.
Meet our team below (or click here if you’re impatient).
We started AgVend with the simple belief that there was a better way for farmers to purchase their inputs. You should have access to the programs that you prefer, be able to select the level of service that you’d like, and save time and money in the process. From crop protection products to fertilizers, and many more products, AgVend provides one of the largest catalogues of online crop inputs at the nation’s most competitive prices. We work with dozens of independent retailers, dealers, and manufacturers - meaning you’re not limited to specific brands, generics, or programs.
At AgVend, we want you to buy the products that make the most sense for your farm, in a way that makes sense for you.
The process is simple. You apply filters for any returns, rebates, or payment methods that you’d like, select your products, and complete your order. The supplier will then contact you to arrange final details around pickup or delivery if needed. We’re here to help you find products, procure pricing, facilitate the transaction, and help with anything else along the way. Our Farmer Engagement team works hard to ensure you have an incredible experience working with us.
Ultimately, we built AgVend for today’s farmer.
The modern farmer.
Our mission is to build powerful tools that impact how farmers do business - primarily through easier access to competitive pricing and simplified purchasing. We’ve seen our Marketplace & unique Quote Request tools enable our customers to reduce costs and increase profitability time and time again, and we can’t wait for you to experience it, too.
