HELM ARGENTINA holds 4th Annual Workshop
Buenos Aires, October 2019
HELM is a family-owned company with a business tradition stretching back over 120 years and a leader in the global distribution of chemical, fertilizer, crop protection and pharmaceutical products. The company was established in Argentina in 2003, building on years of successful business operations previously managed directly from the Hamburg headquarters.
A few weeks ago HELM Argentina organised its 4th Workshop with its main customers at the Hotel Hilton in Pilar. The event centred on several key topics related to the local economy and included a focus session on macroeconomic perspectives for Argentina post-PASO, hosted by the economist Carlos Melconian.
Regarding projects for the years to come, the Workshop saw the prelaunch of SKYFLD, a precision digital agriculture tool: this enables crop-monitoring based on biomass maps produced from satellite data updated every 5 days. It also provides tailored recommendations for the application of fertilizer as well as crop sowing, thus optimising crop yields. The formal launch will take place at the upcoming edition of Expoagro in March 2020.
