5 Keys To Successful Purchasing

According to distributor representatives from Griffin Greenhouse Supplies, Ball Seed and BFG, growers can save money by following this checklist:

■ Keep good records of what you’ve purchased in years past.


■ Pool your orders together to save money, get good terms and reduce delivery charges.

■ Make plans at least one year ahead on capital investments to ensure availability and allow for any contingencies.

■ Let suppliers know about your future investment plans and needs, to take advantage of any special deals.

■ Think about how your business will evolve and keep suppliers in the loop to help you choose investments that will meet your needs now, but also as your operation grows.
