Connecting Copernicus Remote Sensing data with data of harvesters and planting machines: In order to meet all the challenges of the growing world population, more data-driven decisions in agriculture are needed. These data-driven decisions can only be effective if different parties together generate quick and personal advice for our farmers, including the necessary guarantees for data ownership and data protection. By joining forces with the agricultural machine builder AVR, VITO Remote Sensing can provide a data integration between the new AVR Connect platform and the information platform WatchITgrow.
The service aims at supporting agriculture activities to resist and adapt to climate change and at the same time ensuring the increase of productivity in a sustainable manner. The provision of improved indicators for agricultural monitoring based on in situ, meteo, soil and RS data, addresses the needs of agro industry and farmers. The tool supports agro consultants in their advice to farmers and demonstrate methodologies implementable at field level.
