Indicator of Land Value

One important technical aspect is that since the 1960s Uruguay has had a soil classification system, known as CONEAT, which makes it possible to determine the productivity of each rural plot. The average value in Uruguay is 100 with minimum values of 5 and maximum values of 263. This tool is freely accessible and allows for the characterization and evaluation of farmland in different areas of the country (http://web.renare.gub.uy/js/visores/coneat/). By comparing with Google Earth images and taking soil samples, it is possible to get a clear indication which types of production are currently most suitable. This demonstrates the transparency of Uruguayan farmland market. No other country in South America offer this kind of soil mapping.

This index is also an ´indicator´ of the value of land, although a good price appreciation should also take into account infrastructure, water presence, access and other relevant production factors.

It is good to realize that farms in Uruguay are usually mixed farms, combining grains, livestock and sometimes forestry. This diversification supports soil conservation and it evens out volatility of prices of commodities.

After Sales Service

Your farm is managed

Most landowners in Uruguay (both domestic and international) do not farm their land themselves. They are absentee owners who rely on farm management companies or tenants to take care of their property. Most farmers in Uruguay, on the other hand, are contractors or management companies with no or little land of their own. For most of our clients, we arrange the adequate management of their farms in Uruguay based on a service agreement. However, this is not an exclusive arrangement: if you prefer another way of operating your farm, we will suggest other available options.
