agriculture

Nowadays progress and results in the area of precision farming (PF) including fertilisation, protection and water management, stimulate a new demand of EO services, and consequently in the utilisation of EO data for PF purposes. With this regards, EO4Agri will provide scientific and technical guidelines on how to improve the Copernicus programme and services as well as a Strategic Research Agenda analysing main priorities related to research in the domain of EO for agri-food sector.

food

Food and Nutrition Security (FNS) and Sustainable Agriculture are still major global challenges. Thus, EO4AGRI will establish formal cooperation relation with GEOGLAM to actively participate in its opinion forming process and with other initiatives such as FAO and the World Food Programme for joint analysis of the potential of Copernicus exploitation.

financial

Land use information, yield estimation and potential food market development are critical business data for investors and banks; meanwhile assessment of damage from natural catastrophes is crucial for insurance companies. EO4AGRI will analyse potential services and techniques based on Copernicus data for the financial sector.

goverment

Paying Agency management and technical staff in charge of the EU agricultural subsidies in compliance with the European Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) will benefit from the dedicated EO4Agri platform where information exchange and best practice assessment can be performed.

farm

EO4AGRI will provide with orientation aid related to the availabilities of data, service and tools to farmers and farmer associations in order to support them in the utilization of EO data-fueled information systems and related state-of-the-art farm management technology.
