Matias Cambareri is another scientist in the region who relies on Mark 2 devices from Caburé. Matias, an Agricultural Engineer specialized in agrometeorology, is a private advisor, teacher and researcher in water management at the Faculty of Agrarian Sciences (UNMdP) and the National Institute of Agricultural Technology (INTA). He uses the Mark 2, which he notes was easy to install, to track changing rain and water patterns and other findings that he publishes in a monthly report that goes out to growers, agricultural advisers and industry experts.
Like the industry leaders and researchers who rely on Arable technology, Walter Jove
, Arable’s Latin America partnerships manager, enjoys working with Caburé. He travels from our headquarters in California
to spend days in the field with Felix and the team to exchange ideas on how Arable’s technology and insights can be optimized by South American agriculturalists. “Aside from being experts in Argentinian agriculture and technology in their own right, Felix and his team at Caburé are doing really important work with some of the most innovative and successful growers in the country,” Walter says. “They have a clear understanding of the importance of weather and plant data for successful agricultural operations. Plus, they’re just really fun to be around–they can really put on a show with their bbq and folk singing skills–and I look forward to being able to travel back down to see them soon.”
