Welcome to AFS's Grower Portal
In November of 2020 Asmus Farm Supply made the change from the AFS Storefront to the AFS Grower Portal. The change over brought some new features for AFS customers.
Some of these new feature include viewing your past purchase history, viewing statements, viewing bookings, viewing balances, paying invoices and linking your Corteva TruChoice awards.

The Grower Portal is available to growers in an internet browser or through an app. These choices make it even easier to have your account information available at your fingertips at anytime. If you're not yet a user of the Grower Portal request access now. The request access process is used to ensure you are seeing the correct AFS account information in the portal.

For the next few weeks each newsletter will focus on how to use a specific feature on the Grower Portal.
