    VinBot responds to a need to boost the quality of European wines by implementing precision viticulture (PV) tools in the face of serious market threats worldwide and structural shortcomings within the EU wine sector. Wine producer associations have no control over yield management throughout their members’ vineyards, which leads to reduced quality wine at the association level.

    Increasing water scarcity and environmental concerns have urged the search for solutions for better water management in irrigated agriculture. Precision irrigation is one of these solutions.
    Technologies have developed potential systems, although effective partnerships have to be fostered between private industry and scientific community to shape up some common and complementary solutions.

    Quality, efficiency and transparency of farming are crucial for successful EU economic performance and sustainability of its natural environment. There are 12 million Agricultural holdings in the EU member states and about 40 % of the land area is farmed for crops and livestock. The European Bio-Economy sector has a market size of €1.5 trillion and employs more than 22 million people.

    "Due to climate related changes, longer dry periods for European farmers and without irrigation the risk of a volatile harvests will rise, that is the reason for a tendency across

    Europe to irrigate fields. The need for innovative irrigated systems is to minimize water consumption and costs. Also in times of limited water the project will be lucrative.

    Dairy farming has adopted automatic milking (AM) at an accelerating rate for reasons such as improvement in lifestyle, less physical work, attracting skilled labour and increased profitability (higher milk production, lower labour costs). Up to now, indoor feeding systems have been well adapted to AM, however grazing has not, leading to a decrease in grazing on AM farms. Grazing has many advantages for economy, environment, animal welfare and product quality, so it is essential that integrated grazing and AM dairy systems are developed.

    Controlled Traffic Farming (CTF) management can play a key role in sustaining soils and future crop production, which are today threatened by heavy machinery traffic and intensive production systems. To play this role in sustainable intensification, CTF needs to be developed to become a mainstream technology rather than a niche practice.

    The main goal is to optimise the feeding strategy for grazing cattle and to improve the methods of pasture management. An in the frame of the project developed pasture robot and a modified automatic grazing system (AGS) will be integrated into existing herd management software (HMS), providing an optimal feeding strategy for cattle and pasture maintenance. A robot will be redesigned and sensors for detection of biomass, cowpats etc. and actuators, a mulcher and a seeder, will be implemented.

    Ignoring the inherited spatial variation in soil properties with traditional sampling methods leads to poor crop management, yield loss and excess use of input. The proposed system of FarmFuse addresses these issues in 2 ways: (a) utilising a new and innovative on-line multi-sensor platform for measuring key soil properties at an appropriate resolution. (b) Integrating this improved soil data with other information such as vehicle-borne sensing of crop growth, weather data, soil conductivity and yield maps, to develop algorithms to determine rules for variable rate application.

    This project proposes implementation of precision agriculture technologies and methods in the beekeeping. Precision agriculture approach is adapted for beekeeping based on the various measurements of individual bee colonies all year around thus detecting different states of colonies and apiaries enabling rapid reaction by the beekeeper in case of necessity. Digital measurements such as temperature, humidity, audio and video can be used to detect several states of a bee colony: swarming, broodless stage, brood rearing, illness.
