I recently purchased some inputs form local FBN rep. My neighbor tipped me off that FBN dropped their membership for chemical purchases. It turns out the FBN rep is also a Pioneer dealer (not sure how that works!); he is easy to visit with, has a good feel for what products fit where. He seemed quite knowledgeable of the real world situations, not just a phone/ computer geek. I e-mailed him a list of chems I wanted prices on (I sent the same list to several other vendors too). He responded on time; he had some good prices on some products. I felt good about the initial transaction, I guess time will tell if he gives good service. About my local vendors: I don't feel bad shopping around if the local guys don't carry the products I need. I discovered some bigger companies like Ag Chem Solutions can find products that my local suppliers say aren't available or don't exist.
