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.
The aim of the ReMIX project was to analyse and optimize the functioning of species mixtures, also called intercrops, in order to help design sustainable and diversified cropping systems for both conventional and organic agriculture
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
The SOILCARE project developed the concept of soil-improving cropping systems (SICS) to advance the adoption of soil management while ensuring sustainability and profitability.
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.
The overall objective of the SUPER-G project is to co-develop sustainable permanent grassland systems and policies to optimize productivity, while supporting biodiversity and broader ecosystem provisioning.
QuantiFarm – Assessing the impact of digital technology solutions in agriculture in real-life conditions
The overarching aim of the QuantiFarm project is to support the further deployment of digital technologies in agriculture (DATs) as key enablers for enhancing the sustainability performance and competitiveness of the agricultural sector. To achieve this goal, QuantiFarm aims to establish a comprehensive assessment framework for the independent qualitative and quantitative assessment of the multiple costs and benefits of DATs, as well as of their sustainability impact.
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.
