FBN Network

Jul 13, 2023

We are excited to announce today the launch of AcreVisionSM, an innovative farmland evaluation system designed to assist U.S. farmers in making informed decisions about potential land purchases by providing vital insights into specific farmland parcels. The evaluation tool is available at no cost to FBN members. (FBN membership is also free). 

"Land is the most vital asset to farming operations," said FBN Finance General Manager Dan English. "While the residential real estate industry has developed a range of tools to help value homes and land, that level of intelligence has been largely absent from the agricultural world. AcreVision empowers producers by providing them with the critical data they need to make informed decisions about their land and potential land acquisitions."

Using AcreVision, farmers can immediately access a wealth of accurate, comprehensive information across over 630 million acres and 15 million parcels, generally including: 

  • Tillable acres

  • Productivity index

  • Cropping history

  • Soil type maps

  • Elevation

  • Slope

  • Terrain wetness

  • Comparable sales

AcreVision leverages dozens of public data sets in proprietary analytical models, enabling growers to envision the full potential of land parcels. Importantly, individual grower data is never used in farmland evaluations.

"FBN can now serve farmers’ farmland needs end-to-end with unmatched digital capabilities," said English. "Starting with AcreVision to help farmers find and assess parcels, through instant approval* and bridge loan financing options for land purchases, and then farming the land with the full platform of FBN analytics, inputs, and financial services."
