Develop an innovative, fully distributed, Federated rather than Integrated ADS
Big Data Value
Agricultural Policy (CAP) implementation
fully distributed Agri-Environment Data Space (ADS)
Increase end-users/farmers trust and confidence to agri-environment AI technology
Decentralized data capture management & In-situ on-device/edge real-time data upscaling
Innovative Business Models based on traceable use-case knowledge and data sharing
Farmers/Stakeholders production adaptation and behavioural change to climate policies
The solution on the triangle a) global food needs, b) competitiveness/farmers’ fair income and
c) sustainable farming/protection of the environment lies in knowledge
UC CLUSTER #1 - Arable Crops
Optimize the quality and quantity of the crop production and increase the environmental sustainability. Reduce the wasted irrigation water, fertilizers, pesticides, energy. Involve different technologies and data platforms such as IoT sensors, edge cloud, drones/satellite visual/multispectral images and AI models.
UC CLUSTER #2 - Vegetables
Precision irrigation/ fertilization, harvest /diseases prediction for vegetables/arable crop increased production. Involve IoT sensors, edge cloud, radiation/clorofile/pH metering, multiple data platforms with geotagged photos alone with drones/satellite multispectral imagery.
UC CLUSTER #3 - Trees & Vineyard
Protect the health and quality of fruit trees and vineyards crop. Increase quality and quantity, avoid diseases with less pesticides, foresee and mitigate frost. Involve IoT weather/soil sensors, edge cloud, diverse geotagged photos’ datasets, drones/satellite multispectral imagery.
UC CLUSTER #4 - Livestock
Use edge cloud and real-time IoT sensor data (e.g. neck collar, feeders, emission sensors) together with GPS location data to monitor the cattle/pig health, activity, feeding and calving, proactively control milk and meat quality, reduce the greenhouse gas emissions and nitrogen deposition.
UC CLUSTER #5 - Cross Sector
Validate cross domain use cases (fruit, vineyards, livestock, milk, oil, biogas, manure, energy) and address both supply and demand sides of the supply chain, including interoperability and traceability of platforms, electricity production and waste management.
UC CLUSTER #6 - CAP Realization
Focuses on CAP realization tools/applications and aims to assess and manage risk through modern ML with the aim of reducing the use of pesticides, fertilisers and antibiotics. Promote modern crop monitoring technologies. Benchmarking eco-scheme monitoring tools to support the new CAP towards fair income, land use and environmental protection.
UC CLUSTER #7 - Climate Monitoring
Climate monitoring plays a vital role in agriculture by providing valuable information about weather patterns, climate variability, and climate change impacts on crop growth, pests, diseases, and water availability. It involves collecting data from weather stations, satellites, remote sensing technologies, and climate models.
