Digital transformation in the agricultural sector: drone technology
Agriculture, contrary to what many may seem, is a sector that has always been closely linked to the latest technological advances. Proof of this is the constant appearance and development of new techniques and tools for the improvement of all aspects related to crops, such as drones.
What is precision agriculture?
The yield of a crop is the result of a large number of factors that affect it. Even within the same crop plot there may be considerable variability between different areas of the same. Continue Reading
How to choose an adequate plot for a field trial
In any experiment, the conditions under which it is carried out are a factor that must be taken into account when designing, executing and interpreting the results of the experiment. Within the world of phytosanitary products, one of the aspects to consider is the correct choice of land or plot in which the field trial will be developed. In the following lines, we will provide some ideas so that this decision is supported by solid criteria.
How technology provides a new vision for pest control
The fight against diseases and pests affecting plants has been clearly benefited in recent years by the rapid emergence and expansion of scientific techniques that offer us a wide range of tools aimed at the optimization of growing areas. In the following lines we will deal with some of the most outstanding. Continue Reading
How to apply digital transformation to your field trials
The companies that base their work in the realization of field trials must face the new challenges and changes that the digital transformation suppose. An important number of structures and processes must be redesigned in order to face this metamorphosis successfully. In the following lines we will try to describe a brief guide to be able to enjoy all the benefits that the implantation of digital transformation implies in your field trials.
Basic notions that a GLP Laboratory must meet
Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) aim to confirm the safety and efficacy of any chemical product. For this, they make up a quality system related to the management of trials that covers a broad list of processes. In the following lines we will try to shed light on some of these procedures in order to know them better and thus approach excellence in laboratory work.
New trends in BCA’s
Biological Control Agents or BCA’s have acquired a great importance in recent years in the field of Plant Protection Products. The growing environmental awareness and the search for more efficient measures for farmers have been a catalyst for the development and implementation of them. A consequence of all this is the constant opening of research lines in order to find new biological control agents and improve the action of existing ones.
What are Plant Protection Products?
Plant Protection Products (PPP), also known as phytosanitary products, acquires a fundamental importance in agriculture when it comes to guarantee the productivity and safety of the crops. Therefore, it is essential to have an adequate knowledge of the types that exist, their composition, uses, risks and the legislation that regulates them.
