The project will design, develop and implement a Future Internet based Sustainable Irrigation Service (FISIS), which will allow end users to increase yield and, at the same time, significantly reduce both economic and environmental cost. FISIS will stimulate social networking and collective awareness among end users, targeting the dissemination of best practices, exchange of opinions, discussions and advice from experts.

The objectives of this project are: 1. Generate adequate information to understand the relationship between Somatic Cell Count (SCC), Diffrential Cell Count (DCC) and mastitis (intramammary infections) in dairy herds. 2. Develop guidelines to cost effective monitoring and control of mastitis in dairy cattle herds that should be offered with the commercail DCC product 3. Develop a commercial DCC product that will be used to automate the counting of DCC

Producing the highest quality crop with a maximized yield requires the real-time measurement and actionable analysis of a large number of plant-related external factors. These factors are meteorological, geological, organic and human-related. Measuring and processing these parameters is at the core of any decision-support system intending to streamline the production of farmlands. Currently there are no solutions available that can quantify all on-site plant-related parameters in real-time.

IrriSmart is a cloud service that implements FAO-56 guidelines for computing crop water requirements from meteorological data and crop coefficients, a key foundation component in decision support systems for irrigation and fertirrigation practices. FAO-56 guidelines provide a standardized guidance to project managers, consultants, irrigation engineers, hydrologists, agronomists and meteorologists for computing crop water requirements for both irrigated and rainfed agriculture and water consumption by agricultural and natural vegetation, allowing a model-based approach in critical business pro

Tomato plays an important role in European agriculture, both from a social and economic view. In the last years, tomato crop is facing hard challenges due to problems in productivity, competitiveness and profitability. Furthermore, climate changes are jeopardizing EU agricultural products. ICT tools could play an important role in this sector. High quality is a must in horticultural products in addition water shortage increases.

Soil-for-Life® (SfL) drives continuous improvements in crop production/utilisation resulting in direct increases in marketable yield and operational efficiencies. SfL is underpinned by an emerging innovative interdisciplinary field ‘agri-informatics’ whereby statistics and database management techniques are used to exploit knowledge held in multiple ’big data’ sets.

Abstract The project brings together agronomy research, on rapid protein assays for milling wheat, with engineering of photonic sensors, image recognition & mechatronic systems. The ultimate goal is to deliver a tractor-mount scanning unit for autonomous mapping of protein content across wheat fields, to a spatial resolution better than 2 square metres at full field application speeds (17km/hr) for precision application of nitrogen (N). N is the primary input cost and 80% of the carbon footprint, in milling wheat production, however it is over applied in 3 out of 4 cases.

This project unusually involves a consortium of prime producers and technology suppliers. It is farmers who will actually deliver on sustainable intensification and that is why this project involves them directly as full partners. Entitled Real-time Information Systems for Precision Pig Production, the project will commercially pilot a recently developed system - Guardian Action - as a precursor to full UK industry roll out.

Development of a cluster to provide recent remote sensing products for agriculture Remote sensing data provide information on the current status and the biophysical properties of agricultural land, which are an important tool for practical agriculture. The EU Copernicus program will provide a new fleet of Earth observation satellites that provide operational satellite data in unprecedented quantity, temporal resolution and technical excellence.
