From the need to obtain timely information to anticipate and correct timely problems in the administrative management of the crop, and the need to manage and build a database in an operation of more than 4,000 has./year for future analysis , SIGESA is created to provide a timely solution to these needs, implementing a day-to-day information collection model, and serving as logistical support to reduce raw materials shipments.
Since the implementation of SIGESA in the company, it has become an essential and essential tool in the daily agronomic operations of the company, becoming a fundamental support for agronomists and field coordinators, who manage to access information in an agile manner to support themselves in the making of day-to-day decisions.
In the last year, the use of the tool has seen a positive result in three important aspects, the first is the increase in the average production per hectare that went from 112 Bt / hect in 2016 to 114 Bt / hect in the 2017, that is, an increase of 2 Bt / hect.
The other important aspect is the decrease in costs per hectare, which went from $ 7,006,429 / hect to $ 6,877,312 / hect, a decrease of $ 129,117 / hect.
Finally, a decrease in raw material consumption is reflected in the comparison of 2016 vs. 2017, the cost savings is of $ 138,585 / hect, that is, a decrease in raw material costs of 5%. All this translates into a decrease in the cost per kilo of paddy rice, which went from $ 1,001 / kg in 2016 to $ 963 / kg in 2017; a reduction of $ 38 / kg which means 3.79% less in cost.
And in 2017, an average of 19 million kg have been collected, which means a cost saving of around 720 million pesos; which guarantees a sustainable production and consumption for the business, and therefore contributes to satisfy the country's demand for rice.
