Updates from Stenon’s calibration campaign in Brazil

As Stenon’s calibration campaign has been accomplished, now agronomists and growers in Parana and Sao Paulo can benefit from our real-time soil analysis solution

We are very excited to announce that our calibration campaign for São Paulo and Paraná regions of Brazil has been completed.

The core of Stenon’s technology is data accuracy, and before we enter into any new market, we run a thorough calibration process in each region to ensure that accuracy. For instance, during our calibration project in São Paulo and Paraná regions of Brazil, we took over 6000 measurements with the FarmLab of Stenon. We also obtained several thousands of soil samples and sent them to different laboratories in Brazil as well as in Germany.

Only after our data science department analyzed the results and confirmed the data matched we began our operation. We look forward to starting providing agronomists and growers with our innovative technology in São Paulo and Paraná regions of Brazil.
