Advisory platform for small farms based on earth observation
APOLLO is an EU-funded innovation project aiming to develop a market-ready platform of agricultural advisory services focused primarily, but not exclusively, at smallholder farmers in Europe. The APOLLO project aims to bring the benefits of precision agriculture to farmers through affordable information services, making extensive use of free and open Earth Observation data, such as those provided by the European Union’s Copernicus programme. These services will help farmers to make better decisions by monitoring the growth and health of crops, providing advice on when to irrigate and till their fields and estimating the size of their harvest. Ultimately, these interventions should lead to less farm (or agricultural) inputs and higher yields and therefore increased profitability and competitiveness.
The services provided by the APOLLO platform include:
The four APOLLO services support farmers at all stages of the growing cycle. The services will be made available on the APOLLO platform over the internet through the desktop, or via the dedicated APOLLO mobile/tablet application.
FATIMA addresses effective and efficient monitoring and management of agricultural resources to achieve optimum crop yield and quality in a sustainable environment. It covers both ends of the scale relevant for food production, viz., precision farming and the perspective of a sustainable agriculture in the context of integrated agri-environment management. FATIMA aims at developing innovative…
The EU policy tool for integrating environmental requirements into the Common Agricultural Policy is the Cross Compliance Scheme. EU farmers shall respect cross-compliance rules, legislative standards and obligations, in order to receive payments, but more importantly cross-compliance enhances awareness among them and helps European farming to be more compatible with the expectations of society. Farmers’…
The goal of AUDITOR is the implementation of novel precise-positioning techniques based on augmentation data in custom GNSS receivers to improve the performance of current augmentation services and reducing costs. These techniques are already patented by the consortium and proven to offer better accuracy with faster convergence times than solutions commercially available. More sophisticated atmospheric…
