EO-driven services for farm management
This theme focuses on leveraging the power of EO systems and advanced crowdsourcing techniques to deliver value added services to European farmers and public authorities involved in the agricultural sector
The main objective will be to help establish an open and collaborative framework needed to create the desired synergies between EO systems and crowdsourcing as the data sources i.e. “farmers as sensors”. Innovative tools will provide farmers with information on the vegetation health status from remotely sensed EO data as an incentive to share data on crops grown, crop phenological information, management information, occurrence of pests and diseases and impact of extreme weather. This two-way communication has considerable value for a variety of end users of the data and also for the farming community, which will have access to Copernicus products and the sharing of collective knowledge across the community. The Serbian demonstration case will integrate LandSense results into AGROSENSE for support in agriculture to leverage the power of EO systems and advanced crowdsourcing techniques to deliver value added services to European farmers.
