Tasks:

  • Identifying and assessing the different systems and use of data handling in precision arable farming and precision livestock farming.
  • Looking at where compatibility issues need to be resolved as well as potential solutions.
  • Collecting existing or potential solutions to processing large volumes of data from different types of precision farming sensors as well as existing or potential solutions to integrating these data into user-friendly farm management support systems.
  • Collecting existing or potential solutions to integrating precision farming systems into small and medium-sized holdings.
  • Listing fail factors that limit the use of the identified techniques/systems by farmers and summarise how to address these factors as well as explore the role of innovation and knowledge transfer in addressing these fail factors.
