The aim of the GROW project was to empower farmer and food-growing communities to improve the quality of soils using sensors, an app and satellite data.
LIFT Low-Input Farming and Territories – Integrating knowledge for improving ecosystem-based farming
The overall goal of LIFT was to identify potential benefits of the adoption of ecological farming in the European Union and to understand how socio-economic and policy factors impact the adoption, performance and sustainability of ecological farming at various scales, from farm- to regional level
FATIMA aims to help farmers in managing water and nutrient application in agricultural production, through the development of mapping tools and services.
CONSOLE – CONtract SOLutions for Effective and lasting delivery of agri-environmental-climate public goods by EU agriculture and forestry
The overall objective of CONSOLE is to boost innovation in the lasting delivery of agri-environmental-climate public goods (AECPGs) by EU agriculture and forestry.
LANDSUPPORT – Development of integrated web-based land decision support system aiming towards the implementation of policies for agriculture and environment
The objective of LANDSUPPORT is the construction of a free, web-based smart geoSpatial Decision Support System (S-DSS), consisting of a powerful set of tools aimed at supporting sustainable agriculture/forestry, evaluating trade-offs between land uses (including spatial planning) and contributing to the implementation of land-related policies.
SUSFERT – Sustainable multifunctional fertilizer – combining bio-coatings, probiotics and struvite for phosphorus and iron supply
The SUSFERT project aims to address the widespread usage of mineral fertilisers in EU agriculture, which are largely based on non-renewable resources. It is developing multifunctional fertilisers for phosphorus (P) and iron (Fe) supply, which will fit into existing production processes and common EU agricultural practice.
LandSense is a modern citizen observatory for Land Use & Land Cover (LULC) monitoring, connecting citizens with Earth Observation (EO) data to transform current approaches to environmental decision making across urban greenspaces, agricultural management and biodiversity/habitat threats. The project involved demonstration pilots in which citizens used their own devices to supplement the existing monitoring through interactive reporting, gaming applications and mapathons. Some of the LandSense pilots focused on in-situ observations using mobile apps, whereas other pilots were centered around satellite-image interpretations during dedicated mapathons. Particular attention was given to quality assurance of citizen observations and defining methods for integrating citizen science data with authoritative LULC data.
The goal of the LEGUMINOSE project is to establish intercropping as a climate-smart farming practice. For this, the project will investigate the benefits of intercropping beyond the well-studied effects on nitrogen dynamics, identify the obstacles to adoption of intercropping, and provide farmers across the EU with accessible, actionable, and science-based information for a profitable and sustainable agricultural transformation.
