AGRICULTURE

The Agriculture sector, also known as Arable farming, horticulture and animal husbandry sector, exist of farms which grow plants for production of food (potatoes, vegetables and fruit), fibre (flax), biofuel (rapeseed), dyes (madder), medicines (chicory), decoration (garden and indoor plants) and/or farms which breed animals for the production of food (meat, milk and eggs) etc.

After the introduction of GPS on the tractor, there is a growing interest to use sensors to collect data and images of crops and soils. This with the purpose to manage place specific and to save resources and to optimize the culture. This is called precision farming or smart farming.

From the ICAReS project, we want to the use of UAV’s (drones) and remote sensing in the Agriculture sector to develop and promote collecting place specific data of fields. This allows the cultivation and production to be optimized with an efficient use of adjuvants, like fertilizers and pesticides and natural sources as water. This gives an improvement of the financial result by increasing the production on one hand, and, on the other hand, saving costs.

We want to achieve this by building a network around demand, supply, research and regulations and by realizing test sites and demonstrations.
