Stability & Performance Zones
CIBO Stability Score
Not all farm fields behave the same, and an individual field’s unique, sub-field behavior is hard to predict without significant operator experience and data, collected over a number of growing seasons. And the typical data used to explain in-field behavior, such as combine yield and precision maps—is almost never available in farm listings.
CIBO’s Stability Score and Performance Zone maps work to clearly 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).
