Farmland Investors

Increasingly unpredictable water supplies coupled with data scarcity makes property screening and hold/sell analyses more complicated for fiduciaries than ever before.

History of California Water

hr
  • Worsening cyclical droughts
  • Even in years of plenty, millions of acre feet are diverted away from farms and private water rights 
  • SGMA cuts off farm access to farms reliable source of water  
  • CA attempts to remedy lack of water information with data law 
  • Still difficult if not impossible to get answers from water districts
  • 750,000+ more acres predicted to go out of production (PPIC)

Many Are Far Behind

hr

In the last 12 years, in California, 1 million acres of farmland went fallow and 10,000 California farms disappeared (Ag Census). All the while, investors are uncertain they are looking at all the proper water risk factors needed for their fiduciary duties.

While Others are Ahead

hr

Successful investors have access to large amounts of farm and water data which enables them to make screening decisions faster than the competition. Deep portfolio analytics gives them confidence they considered the real-time risk factors for their hold/sell analyses.

Imagine having a portfolio of properties with strong returns and happy clients who rest assured that you have updated and quantified water risk insight so you can best leverage their investments at the right time.
