Rebound Potential Index

  • Capability of agricultural areas to produce natural capital
  • Adjusted for natural risks
  • Evaluated for future financial potential
  • The capacity to rebound from the impacts of a hazard

There is a lot of talk about sustainability and resilience when it comes to modern agriculture. Extreme weather including drought and floods, soil degradation and changing climate patterns around the world are a clear and present danger.

The truth is that we can see problems with across all of the inhabited continents. This brings increased uncertainty and vulnerability to the whole crop agriculture sector. We are entering the era where high yields are not the only important criterion anymore and since the current high yields do not guarantee high yield in the future. The combination of the yields, sustainability and resilience give a more vital and desired overview of crop agriculture health.

Here comes our service - providing Rebound Potential Index - the measure which comprehensively combines what is important for today’s crop agriculture into one simple index suitable for benchmarking the field performance and resilience. Whether you are involved directly in agricultural production or supporting farmers as a state body, NGO, or service business - Rebound Potential Index can give you a benchmark for measuring the performance of crop agriculture and can serve as the basis for building the services and support for the farmers.

How is RPI built?

The Rebound Potential Index assesses the capability of agricultural areas to produce natural capital in the form of crops. This production is further adjusted for natural risks and evaluated for future financial potential. This way we provide insights for our customers who are able to assess the potential of the agricultural area to bring revenues together with the capacity to rebound from the impacts of a hazard.
