Who we are
The Fienile Group brings together an experienced team made up of farmers, researchers and entrepreneurs, all with a solid knowledge of agricultural crops. With objectives that consider social, environmental and economic impact, the group is responsible for introducing the first global innovation in irrigation systems: the center pivot with artificial outdoor lighting. This technology has shown impressive results.
This technological approach offers solutions aimed at sustainable agriculture, focusing on maximizing productivity. The main goal is to stimulate plant growth through light, making photosynthesis more effective in food production. Light supplementation results in healthier plants and an increase in yield.
The Fienile Group is leading these pioneering studies and has the potential to contribute significantly to increasing productivity in world agriculture compared to traditional methods. This is paving the way for a new production model and opening up new possibilities for the agricultural sector.
AND WE'RE JUST GETTING STARTED.
With a lot of effort and dedication, after 8 years of research, we are ready to operate from March 2024 and this will make a big impact on the market.
We have already signed contracts with 3 of the 20 largest cooperatives in Brazil, which is equivalent to 39 thousand producers and more than 1.1 million hectares that can be used to the fullest.
In addition, we are in negotiation with the 2 largest cooperatives in Brazil, including one of the top 5 soybean exporters. These negotiations represent 50,000 producers and more than 1.6 million hectares.
Our potential order book is even more impressive, totaling more than 1.5 million hectares, which is about 10 times our forecast revenue for the fifth year, which is 150,000 hectares.
We are currently involved in cotton, corn, beans, soybean and wheat cultivation projects, all of which have achieved remarkable results in terms of increasing productivity.
OUR TEAM CONSISTS OF RESEARCHERS, EXPERIENCED FARMERS, AND EXECUTIVES.
Gustavo Alexandre Grossi CEO and founder of Fienile
Eight years ago, Gustavo Alexandre Grossi, a grain farmer in Monte Carmelo (MG), observed that a part of his soybean crop was growing too much, but not producing. A third-generation farmer, he challenged himself to understand why. On a night walk around the farm, he saw that the fastest growing grain received light from a pole on the road that passes next to the farm.
“I saw that the closer to the light, the more the soybeans vegetated, grew and did not produce. It was the so-called crazy soybeans. On the other hand, the part of the field that received less light produced much better than the other areas,” he explains.
