He added: “Many more people began to learn about the products and internalize them. We gain more reputation as a company and it helps us to consolidate ourselves with all our products”.
For Cajén, “there are no products on the market with these characteristics”. He cited that the development that draws the most attention is the Terran Robot. “This will allow the producer to carry out agricultural tasks without being on the machine”, He said. The control is remote. The artificial intelligence applied in OcuWeed makes it more efficient and extends its use in various tasks throughout the year.
