Why Assessing Land Stability is a Key Component of Finding Farmland

Not all farm fields behave the same. An individual field’s unique, sub-field behavior is hard to predict without significant operator experience and data collected over many growing seasons. And the typical data used to explain in-field behavior, such as combined yield and precision maps—is seldom available in farm listings.

CIBO’s Soil Stability Score and Performance Zone maps work to communicate and visualize within-field variability over time. We use satellite imagery to look at the field variability over a 10-year period, then map out zones of high, medium, and low performance, as well as zones of significant variability (i.e. inconsistent performance). Take a look at the information available through CIBO about fields across the US.
