RENO, NV, UNITED STATES, June 1, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Indoor agriculture fintech specialist Contain Inc announced today the launch of two data products, a public stock index and a measure of the industry’s newsworthiness.

The Contain Indoor Ag Stock Index™ follows the returns of a portfolio of controlled environment agriculture related listed stocks. The largest share of the index is US listed, but it also includes European, Canadian and Japanese exchange listed stocks. Though the past year has seen several IPOs and exchange upgrades in the sector, such as, greenhouse grower Edible Garden, it has underperformed the market.

The Contain Industry Buzz Index™ tracks the popularity (frequency of appearance) of a collection of indoor agriculture-related terms in the media. The Contain team created the index following its observation that media mentions regarding farm and funding announcements correlated with higher interest in its products from investors, lenders and new farmers alike.

Both indices are updated monthly, and available for download with free registration on the Contain site at insights.contain.ag. They also have limited availability for licensing. They are the newest addition to the firm’s research library, which also includes briefing papers on topics like ESG and industry funding, and a quarterly tracker for private investment into the controlled environment agriculture sector.

The Contain, Inc. team has been involved in indoor agriculture for nearly a decade and views these most recent introductions as another milestone in the industry’s development. “It’s exciting to see the industry mature to a stage where these kind of data products are requested by our clients and stakeholders” said founder and CEO Nicola Kerslake. The Contain team envisages introducing additional data products in the future.
