Lithuanian farmers are on the brink of a digital revolution with the launch of the AgriDataValue platform, a groundbreaking initiative funded by the European Union’s Horizon Europe research and innovation program. This digital platform is specifically designed to empower farmers through advanced digital technologies, enabling them to harness the power of agricultural data like never before. The AgriDataValue platform will serve as an indispensable digital tool for addressing several critical areas:

Enhanced Digital Data Accessibility: A common hurdle for many farmers is the difficulty in accessing crucial agricultural data or the inability to effectively leverage such data. AgriDataValue will provide a digital gateway to a wealth of information, including real-time weather forecasts, comprehensive soil quality data, and detailed plant health insights, all accessible via a user-friendly digital interface.

Data-Driven Decision Making: Leveraging the latest in digital analytics, the platform will equip farmers with sophisticated tools to analyze vast amounts of data, enabling data-driven decision making for planting, fertilization, pest control, and more. This digital approach aims to optimize resource utilization, minimize operational costs, and maximize yields through precision farming techniques.

Digital Support for Sustainable Farming: In today’s world, sustainability is not just an environmental concern but a digital innovation challenge as well. AgriDataValue will foster sustainable farming practices through digital tools that offer insights for reducing chemical use and enhancing soil health, aligning with global sustainability goals.

Creating a Digital Farming Community: Beyond just a platform, AgriDataValue aims to cultivate a digital community among farmers, researchers, tech developers, and other stakeholders. This digital ecosystem will encourage the sharing of knowledge, digital tools, and best practices, enhancing the collective ability to address agricultural challenges.

The success of AgriDataValue hinges on its collaborative design process, involving farmers and agricultural organizations closely to ensure the digital platform meets their specific needs and expectations. Cutting-edge research and technology will underpin the platform, ensuring the use of the most up-to-date digital tools and data analytics techniques.

This initiative signifies a major leap towards the digitalization of Lithuanian agriculture, offering farmers the digital tools necessary for efficient, sustainable, and profitable farm management in the digital age.
