    Implementing Satellite Information and Services for Agriculture Implementing Satellite Information and Services for Agriculture Presentation Transcript

    • Farmers and Public Authorities :Implementing Satellite Information andServices for Agriculture
    • Non-profit association of government institutions
    • MissionSupport SMEs and Local and Regional Authorities toaccess the benefits of satellite services by– Awareness raising– Providing commercially neutral advice and expertise– Identifying relevant implementation models
    • Agriculture Challenges – Satellite Service Answers Rising costs and falling prices Effects of climate change and scarcity of resources Continuous safety and quality of food supply Sustainable developmentSatellite services enable:  Resource efficiency  Optimised yields  Traceability Naples, 11 February 2010
    • Obstacles Lack of awareness Technology can be intimidating Proportionality Resources Naples, 11 February 2010
    • AgricultureGood Practices
    • Northern Ireland - Iain McMordie GPS Precision Farming (fertiliser and pesticides) Benefits: 10% savings in fertiliser and fuel per year Implementation  Improving access to ICT programme run by Department for Agriculture  Funding for GIS  Advice on service and equipment to choose  8 farmers investing together
    • France – Chambre d’Agriculture Eure et Loire Remote sensing to analyse fertiliser and irrigation needs Benefits: resource efficiency, economic boost to agricultural sector Implementation  CA acts as intermediary  Offers service not-for-profit to all farmers on the territory  Provide information, capacity building and technical support
    • France – Cooperative CapSeine Remote sensing to analyse fertiliser and irrigation needs Benefits: resource efficiency, economic boost to agricultural sector Implementation  Cooperative acts as intermediary  Economic actor takes over from public institution  Better placed to provide service to its members
    • Italy – Regione Campania Remote sensing: Regional Irrigation Advisory Plan Benefits: Optimised water management, modernisation of farming practices Implementation  Region has created research centre that provides the information  Personalised information provided free of charge to farmers  Part of regional policy to protect water resources
    • Italy – Regione Campania
    • Conclusions• The technology is there• Innovation filters through by market mechanisms but needs to be guided through pro-active approaches from farmers and Local Authorities
