Afterbefore Systems evaluates land management for investors, business, and the public sector.
Our analyses quantify production risk to make land management more profitable and resilient.
We combine environmental attributes and management that has gone before with research evidence and ecological models to predict what comes after with and without the effects of climate and management change.
Bounding production risk makes business, investment and policy decisions easier, assured and more secure.
Afterbefore provides venture capital, insurers, equity investors and financiers with evidence to help pick the most profitable farms, land management practices and agricultural innovations, and to minimise the long-term risk in their agriculture portfolios.
Our analytics can also help producers know when their current production system becomes a risk to their viability and then evaluate solutions.
Deliver the best agricultural innovations
As the land, markets and climate change, afterbefore analytics help producers painlessly test on-farm innovations that will keep them agile, profitable and in business.
We help innovators source customers and choose their most profitable market segments and regions.
Maintain environmental values
Afterbefore analytics predict trends, shocks and opportunities to enhance environmental values.
Knowing past and future values helps make and evaluate tradeoff decisions in policy and practice.
Feeding the world to 2050 and beyond requires a doubling of current food production on less land under a changing climate without compromising the environment.
Achieving food security for 7 billion souls needs more than business as usual. There will be innovation all along the food supply chain with tweaks to traditional methods, new forms of production, alternative finance, and imaginative ways to spare and share land.
What this means
Financiers will find profit by investing in production efficiency, shorter supply chains, new technologies and ways to diversify risk.
Innovators will invent new solutions and bring them to market where they work best, are resilient, and overcome the inertia of producers.
Environmental values will be resilient where they benefit or can coexist with production and where sensible decisions are made when a value trade-off is unavoidable.
Why we need numbers
Afterbefore believes that these outcomes will be faster with help from science analytics and research evidence. Finding profit, innovation and environmental resilience is easier when trends, shocks and difference can be estimated and tested.
Modern data acquisition and analysis tools applied to what came before can help predict what comes after for everyone along the supply chain.
