The Central-West of Brazil struggles a lot with climate issues. There is an increasing need to take better care of the soil, since good soil fertility can help the plant overcome a period of climatic stress.
Therefore, the demand for soil sampling and compaction measurement is growing fast and the use of modern equipment is well accepted. Thanks to the good results the demand for precision agriculture is growing rapidly, according to service companies.
Agroexacta and Geosafra are two service providers in the region. Both make use of equipment from Falker. This company has specialized in the development and manufacturing of equipment and software for precision agriculture.
