Within-field management zoning
"The open call opened new joint possibilities with other UCs: we develop a brand independent variable potato planting application. Competing machine builders join forces. IoF2020 made it happen!"
Precision crop management
"Input from different sensors, satellite images and IoT sensors results in high spatial and temporal crop observations. This data gets processed in a model, resulting in a decision support service that helps farmers monitor and manage their crops in real time. An important perspective of the service is the possibility to add new functionalities, for example the detection of unexpected events such as diseases or pests development."
Soya protein management
"Through installing a NIR-sensor on the combine harvester we are able to draw a comprehensive picture of all the relevant quality indicators of the soya harvested in the field."
Demonstration activities for several use cases
"Demonstration activities are on the way for each Fruit trial use case. Both farmers and advisors are participating in the meetings organized by the fruit use cases."
"New features are on the way for the better implementation of the technologies in the frame of each use case activity."
Early lameness detection through machine learning
"Data on lame cows is now available, but explaining the data using sophisticated AI techniques is still a work in progress."
Precision mineral supplementation
"Preliminary meta-analysis of the application of precision mineral supplementation already shows unexpected additional advantages."
Video’s and animations for several use cases
"In order to further strengthen the message of the grazing cow monitor, happy cow, herdsman, remote milk quality and precision mineral supplementation use cases video’s and animations have been produced."
Added-value weeding data
"’In 2020 we are going to ‘selectively weed’ our data order to produce useful outcomes."
Enhanced quality certification system
"2020 vintage will offer us the possibility to implement our tools in a few very prestigious wineries. This will contribute to a broad acceptance of our tools, and give us the possibility to be in the spotlight."
in the other trials...
All partners put in a lot of effort to achieve one goal: to further the uptake of IoT technology in the European agri-food sector. In this recurring item, partners in other trials explain what they’re working on right now. These are their answers:
