AcreValue, a free website introduced by Granular and used to analyze the value and productive capacity of farmland, is expanding its coverage area by 50 percent. AcreValue’s Automated Valuation Model, or AVM, was first available in Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado and Texas. With the new year, growers, landowners, investors, bankers and brokers in Nebraska, Wisconsin, Michigan and Ohio will be able to see soil maps and production history for any piece of farmland in the state.

“Winter is the peak season for farmland transactions,” said Tamar Tashjian, Acrevalue Product Manager. “With this expansion, we can offer even more farmers and landowners pertinent information when it comes to buying and selling land or making leasing arrangements for the spring.”

AcreValue’s AVM analyzes data about soils, climate, crop rotations, taxes, interest rates, land sales and crop prices to automatically estimate the value of each piece of farmland.

The easy-to-use website was built specifically for the agriculture industry. For more information, or to see land values in your area, visit:
