Project:

Open access information platform

Intro

The Library of Congress in the USA is the largest library in the world with more than 170 million items. Can you imagine a database of this size? Can you think of how much various information you could find there?

We do not want to conquer with any of the world’s largest libraries. We only want to create an open access information platform for the treasure of agriculture.

How does it work?

The project aims to create an Agricultural Open Access Information and Integrated Services Platform - an advanced digital system for the integration of information resources relevant to agricultural activities and enabling the emergence, implementation and development of new digital services on farms.

The platform to be developed consists of three main interconnected parts:

  • The integration subsystem is intended for the aggregation, integration and centralization of information resources relevant to agricultural activities into a farmer-friendly information management tool.
  • The application subsystem is intended for the final users of the platform and the direct beneficiaries. The aim of the subsystem is to provide a modern and user-friendly interface to meet farmers' information needs and interactive tools for their direct application in farm activities - collection and management of information on fields, efficient planning of agrochemicals and other agricultural activities, integrated management of production processes, report preparation, etc.
  • The analytics subsystem is designed to respond to the rapidly growing potential of modern digital technologies in the field of complex data analysis by applying methodologies related to data classification, model recognition, machine learning and other artificial intelligence technologies. With the help of the subsystem, researchers and innovators will be able to use aggregated data, implement and test new data analysis models on the platform, identify farmers' good practices and use them to develop innovative tools.

Why is this needed?

The breakthroughs in digital technology and agricultural innovation of the last decade are giving farmers more and more opportunities to move towards more cost-effective and environmentally sustainable management principles. However, there is still some space for improvement, as:

  • Public open access systems do not allow the non-professional user to interact with information relevant to agricultural planning (soil type, particle size distribution, productivity, crop type, associated protection zones) for the purposes of planning and implementing agricultural activities. They also have limited scope for data integration with data provided by third parties, such as regular open access data provided by satellite-based Earth observation systems.
  • Farmers have very limited access to models based on the latest research when planning agrochemical measures on farms, assessing risk factors or formulating preventive action plans.
