Farm Market iD Announces Availability of Florida Citrus & Crop Data for Commercial Use

WESTMONT, IL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Nov 22, 2010 -- Farm Market iD, a leading provider of farm-level U.S. agricultural data, announced today it has made available for commercial use previously unavailable information on more than 26,000 agricultural producers in Florida derived from local ownership records, and enhanced by GIS (geospatial information system) data and satellite imagery. Crops included in the data represent 1.7 million planted acres, and cover orange, other citrus, sugarcane and peanut production.

"This is an entirely new market, representing more than $2.4 billion in farm income, that previously had been undocumented at this level of detail," said John Montandon, president of Farm Market iD. "Our ability to look at specific crop data, acreage and parcel information tied to these crops, as well as ownership and/or management contact information by location, is a starting point. From here agricultural, insurance and other marketers can segment the database, and enable relevant dialogue and offers."

The data also can be segmented by residential land owner, tied to parcel size of home-site acreage, Montandon said, enabling non-agricultural home-related offers.
