COMMUNITY

 

UNL and SpeedAgro shall work together for the regional development.  By signing a framework convention, both entities have agreed to collaborate in the staff training and scientific research activities, and in promotion activities of scientific and academic interest. The signature ceremony between Rector Albor Cantard and Managing partner Victor Escalas was held on Friday 29 November. With the objective of working together for mutual collaboration in activities of staff training, of scientific research, and of promotion of academic and scientific interest, the Universidad Nacional del Litoral (UNL) and the regional company SpeedAgro have signed a framework convention. The signing ceremony was this Friday, November 29 at the headquarters of the Rector's Office of the University. It was signed by Rector Albor Cantard and the Managing partner Victor Escalas. Also, the vice-dean of the Faculty of Agrarian Sciences (and dean-elect for the period 2014-2018), Norberto Gariglio, the general manager of Speed ​​Agro, Esteban Gastaldi, among other university members and the company were present.

 

 

 

Ongoing Work

 

Speed ​​Agro corporation is also supporter of the UNL. "Now, to be able to sign this agreement that serves as a new work tool fills us with great satisfaction because we are convinced that this is the way we must follow together with the private sector so that it will benefit all citizens", said Cantard after the ceremony.
On the other hand, Escalas stated that "it is a permanent and daily challenge to innovate and grow in this society. The grain of sand that we can provide as a private sector is that of the corporate social responsibility"

 

 

 

Productive Development

 

"The most important thing is for the private sector to approach the University and demand what it needs. That was the main problem we have had for years, in the past. This type of link was not so simple to do, but that was reversed and it continues to revert. "And that does very well to the productive development of the region", said Gariglio. For his part, Gastaldi said that "we are a local company and we have only ten years of life, but it has grown a lot from the point of view of research, technical development, adaptive planning, etc., all issues that are values ​​that are cultivated within of the University and particularly of the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences. Therefore, for us this agreement is an ideal complement to continue developing our company ". UNL Press - prensa@unl.edu.ar

 

 

 

 

TECHNOLOGY

 

 

ProATec

 

The Technology Adoption Programme (ProATec) for Major Clients aims at making the phytotherapy application process more efficient by using knowledge and technology at the service of sustainable agriculture. The programme considers diagnosis and measurement, improvement proposals, training and technical assistance. It consists of 3 levels of implementation so that the adoption of new technologies and the improvement of practices could be a progressive and measured process carried out by every person involved in it.

 

Below the different PROATECs in detail:

 

 

PROATEC I

ADOPTION OF THE COMPOSITE FORMULATION COADYUVANTS

 

The program contemplates the joint identification of the client's problem in the application process, training by thematic modules, permanent technical assistance and an internal communication plan. The latter consists of permanent disclosure aimed at technicians and applicators.

 

 

PROATEC II

CALIBRATION OF SPRAYERS

 

In this case, it will focus on calibration and start-up, training and subsequent audit of spraying equipment.

A specialist technician in the field of applications will be in charge of the first three steps.

 

 

1) Calibration of Spraying equipment

After the diagnosis, we will proceed to the start-up of the machinery and the identification of the topics to work on in the training.

 

2) Training

The technician will talk about everything that has been done and will train on topics concerning the calibration of the equipment and an efficient application.

 

3) Certification Audit

From each calibrated equipment, a monitoring will be carried out one month after the calibration to control which equipment is being used according to the technician's recommendations. It will be without prior notice and a report will be sent to the person designated by the client.

The monitoring will consist of the evaluation of different parameters established in the previous stages.

 

 

 

PROATEC III

INDUCTION TRAINING IN THE APPLICATION PRACTICE TO OPTIMIZE THE USE OF WATER AND PHYTOSANITARY PRODUCTS.

 

This stage contemplates a diagnosis and measurement of the proposed improvements, training and technical assistance.

In this case, the focus will be on pesticide application techniques and on the use of composite formulating adjuvants, by making the use of water and phytosanitary products more efficient.

Contributions, with our formulation technology, of application practices with low volume.
- Less water contaminated with pesticides.
-  Decrease in operating costs related to less water transport, ease and speed in the

   preparation of mixtures.
- Greater autonomy of work.
- Greater arrival of the pesticide. Paying attention to the size of the drop of the sprinkler brings as a consequence a greater coverage and better penetration in areas hindered by the crop or stubble.
- Less loss of pesticide due to runoff, drift and evaporation.
- Elimination of phytotoxicity related to the use of agricultural oils.
