DecisionVest

Enterprise-grade, real-time crop performance monitoring for buyers.

The pressures on decision making for procurement, sustainability, and risk teams have never been greater. Access to actionable insight, early, and accurate in-season yield predictions, and future risk forecasts is crucial for maintaining your competitive edge.

So, we built DecisionVest for decision makers at CPG businesses, grain companies, cooperatives, and food processors, so you can make early and confident decisions across single or multiple product categories around the world.

Feature highlights

Performance monitoring

Easy-to-use interactive tools, visualisations, maps, and real-time insights, make it easy to see what’s happening right now.

FarmVest

Field-level and personalised forecasts for growers.

FarmVest is a yield management and prediction tool designed specifically for growers. It delivers personalised analysis of each field, tracks yield drivers throughout the season, and provides daily yield predictions.

FarmVest also provides field-level ‘long-range’ planning analysis, helping growers decide what and when to plant, and which varieties to select based on their unique geo-variables and practices.

Feature highlights

Improve productivity

Track crops from planting to harvest with automated daily yield predictions. Early warnings, expected output and quality indicators help you manage the season.

CODEX

Aggregated insights and shared intelligence for policy and business.

The Cervest Open Data Xchange (CODEX) provides bespoke crop-related intelligence and alternative data to those making decisions that affect the world’s natural capital – e.g. public policy, insurance and credit. Our revolutionary multi-crop machine learning technology can generate critical data to help you solve challenges such as:

  • Ensuring early warnings on food security for agencies
  • Customised pricing for climate insurance
  • Quantifing climate-related risk for disclosures and climate finance
  • Providing scientific evidence for adaptation policy by crop or region
