Challenges of the Project
The different groups of stakeholders involved in the agricultural activities have to manage many different and heterogeneous sources of information that need to be combined in order to make economically and environmentally sound decisions, such as:
● definition of policies (subsides, standardisation and regulation, national strategies for rural development, climate change);
● valuation of ecological performances;
● development of sustainable agriculture, crop recollection, timing and pricing;
● plagues detection, etc.
In this context, future agriculture knowledge management systems have to support not only direct profitability of agriculture or environment protection, but also activities of individuals and groups allowing effective collaboration among groups in the agri-food industry, consumers, public administrations and wider stakeholders communities,
