Overirrigation and excessive use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides increase yield cost, contaminate the aquifer and destroy biodiversity, while suboptimal livestock production increases GhG emissions, contributing to global warming.
The solution to the triangle a) global food needs, b) competitiveness/farmers’ fair income and c) sustainable farming/protection of the environment lies in knowledge. Modern farms create a huge amount of data based on IoT sensors and drones, while vast EO data become available via Copernicus Hubs.
AgriDataValue aims to establish itself as the “Game Changer” in Smart Farming and agri-environmental monitoring, and strengthen the smart-farming capacities, competitiveness, and fair income by introducing an innovative, intelligent, and multi-technology, fully distributed platform of platforms. To achieve technological maturity and massive acceptance, AgriDataValue adopts and adapts a multidimensional approach that combines state-of-the-art big data and dataspaces technologies (BDVA/IDSA/GAIA-X) with agricultural knowledge, new business models, and agri-environment policies leveraging on existing platforms and edge computing and introduces novel concepts, methods, tools, pilots and engagement campaigns to go beyond today’s state of the art, perform breakthrough research and create sustainable innovation in upscaling (real-time) sensor data, already evident within the project lifetime.
AgriDataValue will be validated via 24 Use cases in 23 pilots in 9 countries, representing more than 181,000ha with 25 types of crops that span from southwest to northeast Europe, outdoor and greenhouse crops, organic and non-organic production, and more than 2,000 animals of 5 types. More than 4,200 farmers will provide insights and more than 89,000 will be directly informed. More than 1,600 sensors will be utilized and more than 4,500 additional sensors will be installed to measure (real-time) data, including more than 2,500 RFID tags.
