We deliver powerful insights about farmland
Founded by Flagship Pioneering in 2015, CiBO is delivering objective, science-driven information about land to all constituents, creating transparency that will drive efficiencies and optimization in these markets. Our proprietary insights include valuation, productivity, reliability, and sustainability for each parcel in the US. CiBO also provides access to publicly available information, including soil maps, weather, satellite imagery, and tax information about parcels.
This first-of-its-kind land information platform leverages artificial intelligence, mechanistic ecosystem simulation, and computer vision to generate proprietary insights from over 1 petabyte of public and proprietary input data. It enables powerful search capabilities based on multiple criteria or map navigation and then provides rich details on the selected parcels. The platform is accessible through an intuitive interface, using a browser or IOS or Android mobile app.
Scoring the Land
We are on a mission to “decode” the landscape by leveraging our unique technology platform to generate simple scores that can be used to efficiently evaluate and compare parcels of land.
We use expert data science, robust modeling, and a little common sense to come up with our best estimate of an agricultural parcel’s fair market value.
We break a parcel into performance zones to better understand which areas of a field perform consistently, year-over-year.
We simulate the day-to-day growth of a crop to estimate past yields and assess overall productivity of a parcel, independent of a farmer’s data.
By modeling the complex interactions of crops, soil, weather, and management we can measure the environmental impact of farming an individual parcel.
