Towards Farm-Oriented Open Data in Europe: the Scope and Pilots of the European Project "FOODIE"

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, which include (among others) the definition of policies (subsidies, standardisation and regulation, national strategies for rural development, climate change), development of sustainable agriculture, harvest timing and yield estimation, crop damages detection, etc. The European project called “Farm-Oriented Open Data in Europe” with abbreviation "FOODIE", funded between years 2014 and 2017 addresses the above mentioned issues. This paper describes the scope of the project with emphasis on its pilots. The Czech pilot is then analysed in detail including its three scenarios: Improving efficiency of transport in agriculture, Telematics of farm machinery and Monitoring of in-field variability for site specific crop management.
