Companies from the Scientific Park offer solutions that end with the bad odor of barns and mobile applications that warn farmers if there is a possibility of disease emerging among their livestock.

At the Agricultural Fair of Castile and Leon, called Salamaq, different presentations were held of the projects that are currently being implemented with the aim of contributing to the primary sector of the community. One of the presented projects was that of a company called Ficosterra, which has recently settled in the Scientific Park; in their project they use seaweed on farms in order to reduce bad organic odors, as explained in the article in La Gaceta de Salamanca.

Additionally, the researcher José Abel Bote presented a mobile application that tells farmers when they should irrigate and fertilize their crops, creating their own sensors which are more economic than those of competitors. Data can be sent to the platform every 10 minutes. The possibility of transferring the knowledge of the University to our fields and its professionals, is the best way of generating richness in the most fundamental sector of our economy. For this reason, we will go to great lengths to collaborate together with the Council of Salamanca, developing research projects that will bring innovation to our fields.
