Agrícola Testa lies near Pergamino (Buenos Aires) in one of the most important farming regions of Argentina. Managed by the Testa brothers, 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.
