BrioAgro, the company that makes it easy and cheap for farmers

They have developed a soil moisture calibration algorithm that allows them to know when, how much and where to irrigate. They obtain the necessary data by using sensor technology that they distribute in the soil and also by capturing localized satellite and weather information. These three sources of information make it possible to monitor the main variables in which the farmer can intervene to improve his crops and to predict very precisely the time and amount of irrigation.

BrioAgro has been the winning startup of the Water Scarcity Innowise Challenge Lab

BrioAgro’s director, José Luis Bustos, thanked EIT Foods, not only for the prize money, but also because it recognizes BrioAgro’s work in the use of low-cost irrigation technology, both for agriculture and for parks and gardens, which in addition to helping to irrigate in a responsible way, contributes to addressing the challenge of water scarcity in the world.
