EXPLORE THE DATA ECOSYSTEM
The overarching aim of the iFAROS project is to sustain and increase agronomic productivity and environmental performance for small European farmers by exploiting multi-source data to optimize fertilization in wheat cultivation.
The specific technical objectives of iFAROS are:
(1) To develop a novel cloud-based application, acting as an intelligent middleware with data analytics capabilities
(2) To realize better decision-support algorithms for farm management and operations
(3) To develop an advanced FMS for applying and exploiting (1) and (2) in an easy-to-understand manner, also for small farmers.
(4) To apply the produced site-specific management fertilizer application map in an automated way by utilizing ISOBUS
All research and development activities shall be grounded in and thoroughly tested under real-world conditions of wheat production. Complementary usage conditions in Germany, Belgium, Switzerland and Spain will ensure the broad applicability of project results.
