BrioAgro is one of the high-tech companies selected to be part of the first edition of Cajamar Innova: Cajamar’s innovation ecosystem, which accompanies entrepreneurs and companies in the development of new projects to address global water challenges.
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.

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.

De hecho, esa es la razón por la cual me he transformado en un consultor en primer lugar.
