Tulio Calderón, INVAP Manager of Aerospace Projects, offered a lecture at the First Congress of Value added by Origin, organized by INTA (National Institute of Agricultural and Livestock Technology) at the Experimental Station that the institute has in Manfredi, Córdoba.

The purpose of the congress is to share knowledge and experiences aimed at transforming raw materials, producing agrofoods, technology innovations and developments for the soil. Several international experts were invited, among them, Belgian professor Josse De Baerdemaeker, expert in the use of infrared sensors and cameras to regulate and give autonomy to separation and cleaning systems for combine harvesters.

At his conference, Calderón explained that “Argentina builds satellites with temperature and humidity sensors, and radars to control air space in real time, all of which are applied to the field of precision agriculture.”
