18 Mar An achievement with web application for agriculture
The nominated web application has been developed during the last 2 years as one of the Flagship Innovation Experiments (FIE) of the Horizon2020 SmartAgriHubs (SAH) project. The development team was an international consortium of Union “Farmers Parliament”, Latvija (Zemnieku saeima), Latvian technological company BOSC (Baltic Open Solutions Center, Riga), Czech technological company Lesprojekt (Lesprojekt-služby s.r.o., Záryby), Czech Living Lab WirelessInfo (WIRELESSINFO, Litovel) and Swiss company meteoblue (meteoblue AG, Basel). Roles of the members are BOSC as main technology coordinator, Lesprojekt as analytical functionality developer and meteoblue as provider of meteorological and climatic data, Zemnieku saeima is responsible for stakeholder management, user requirements and dissemination.
The web application integrates data from e.g. sensors on farm or fields (different sensors from various data providers and integrates in common data model of SensLog application), it provides available thematic spatial data (field blocks, protected zones, soil maps), regularly updated remote sensing data (optical images from Copernicus Sentinel-2 satellite and derived vegetation indices) and it provides also current weather forecast as well as historical climatic data for selected farm. The developed web application offers various analyses starting from recommendations for field interventions planning based on weather forecast or decision-making support based on Earth observation and remote sensing data for vegetation status, yield productivity zones delimitation etc. The web application uses functionalities of Lesprojekt Cloud and it is a unique solution due to the integration of various data and functionalities in one complete application.
The web application is hosted on the Digital Innovation Hub of the Farmers Parliament (https://groundwater.smartagro.lv/fie/index.html?lang=en) and utilizes analytical functions of the Czech FOODIE SmartAgrihub (www.agrihub.cz) and the whole infrastrukture of the Lesprojekt Cloud. The application was tested in Latvia primarily and testing in other countries is starting in these weeks.
The application is available at: https://groundwater.smartagro.lv/
