With the growing demand for results, it is necessary to restructure the current technical and scientific assistance and support model. The Research, Development and Innovation (RDI) team develops hundreds of experiments with a “multi crop” vision to deliver integrated and personalized solutions to the company's commercial technical department and to the farmer. All experimental development is carried out at the Technological Center (CETEC) in Santa Bárbara do Sul, in the Pelotas Research Pole, Santa Maria and Entre-Ijuís areas and in commercial crops distributed in the region covered by the company. Through the relationship with researchers and publications in congresses, we interact with the scientific community, validate concepts elaborated regionally and build new projects. In this way, we guarantee the quality of the work and analyzes carried out.
Oriented to the technique based on pre-existing knowledge, the research, which can be basic or applied, aims to test, evaluate and reinvent management, processes, products and services, extending the entire chain, anticipating scenarios, proving and demonstrating the viability technical and functional. Innovation happens through the conception of a new product or process, in the characterization and aggregation of new functionalities or characteristics that promote gains in quality and productivity.
Moreover we operate to achieve experimental development, realizing systematic jobs designed from pre-set knowledge, aiming to prove technical and functional viability of products, processes, systems, services or, even more, improvement of those already implemented.
