Agrícola Testa

Agrícola Testa lies near Pergamino in one of the most important farming regions of Argentina. Managed by the brothers Carlos and Marcelo Testa, soybean, corn and wheat are grown on a 1,130ha farm. The brothers frequently host training courses on their property, encouraging education and dialogue among the farming community and greater agricultural sector in the region. The brothers feel that agriculture is their reason for life. Using innovative technologies, respecting safety and the environment, and sharing their agricultural practices is important to them. Innovative equipment and technology provides digital information that helps to improve the management of resources and decision-making on the farm. A weather station on the farm not only informs agricultural tasks, but also contributes to the prediction of diseases and pests to optimize control measures and adjust the use of agrochemicals at the right time. In addition to farming their land, the Testa brothers offer high-quality agricultural contractual services to other farmers in the region.

Carlos Testa, Manager of Agrícola Testa
The next generation is very concerned about the environment – "you have to respect it," they say. They're passionate about caring for the farm in a sustainable manner. If they carry on our lifestyle on the farm, they will clearly be focused on taking even better care of the environment.

Finding purpose through sustainable growth

Agriculture is advancing more and more in Argentina. The brothers practice precision planting in which there are variations at a distance of 10 meters by 10 meters, for example. When they first started this type of planting in 2009, nobody considered it that important. Today, agriculture as a whole is trending in this direction, but the Testas are pioneers who already use these techniques on 100% of their production area.
