Continuing population and consumption growth are driving global food demand, with agricultural activity increasing to keep pace. Europe has a major agricultural waste problem, generating some 700 million tonnes of waste annually. There is an urgent need and huge opportunity to address the efficient use of agricultural wastes, co-products and by-products (AWCB) towards delivering sustainable value chains in the farming and processing sectors.

In European countries, the cultivation of fertigated crops experience scarcity of water, and the intensity of cultivation poses significant risks to water quality. The main objective of the FERTINNOWA thematic network is to create a meta-knowledge database on innovative technologies and practices for fertigation of horticultural crops.

European crop production is to remain competitive while reducing environmental impacts, requiring development and uptake of effective soil improving cropping systems. The overall aim of SOILCARE is to identify and evaluate promising soil-improving cropping systems and agronomic techniques increasing profitability and sustainability across scales in Europe. A trans-disciplinary approach will be used to evaluate benefits and drawbacks of a new generation of soil improving cropping systems, incorporating all relevant bio-physical, socio-economic and political aspects.

Knowledge regarding the complex interplay between agricultural land use and management and soil quality and function is fragmented and incomplete, in particular with regard to underlying principles and regulating mechanisms. The main aim of iSQAPER is to develop an interactive soil quality assessment tool (SQAPP) for agricultural land users that integrates newly derived process understanding and accounts for the impact of agricultural land use and management on soil properties and functions, and related ecosystem services.

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

Current technologies for access to Local and Metropolitan Area Networks (LANs and MANs) are often unsuitable for large scale distribution in an agricultural environment.
The use of these communication networks for connecting automation and remote control devices for irrigation systems allows registering and distributing water by means of several technological tools provided by digital electronics.

The main innovative aspect lies in interconnection of the main data product line as the cornerstone of a farm software ecosystem and its interaction and interoperability with the use cases. Each use case will develop its own Applications (Apps) incorporating the different data inputs, such as real time meteo data, soil moisture content, tractor fuel consumption, yield data, spectral signatures, as well as manually entered data.

Project is targeting to implement a pilot project to increase animal production and accelerate rural socio-economic development by precision (low input & reduced traffic) fertilization of irregular sloped mountainous pastures by using ICT and automation. Project will create a platform that integrates and harmonizes existing software and hardware technologies into a single system for pasture management.
