Precision Agriculture and ICT in The Netherlands

  1. 1. ICT and Precision Agriculture developments inThe NetherlandsSjaak Wolfert, LEI Wageningen URPeter Paree, ZLTORound Table ICT and Precision Farming, Turin, Italy, 24 June 2013
  2. 2. Sources used Dutch projects:● KodA – from knowledge to practice for arable farming (2006-2010) – 8 M€● PPL – program on Precision Agriculture (2010-2013) – 12 M€● MoveRTK EU projects● agriXchange (2010-2012) – 1.3 M€● SmartAgriFood (2011-2013) – 7.3 M€● FIspace (2013-2015) – 20 M€● Unifarm (2012-2015?) - ? €
  3. 3. ICT becomes a key driver for innovation Location-based monitoring and service delivery through GNSS Internet of Things (IoT) – everything/everyone gets connected,M2M communication leading to autonomously communicatingdevices and virtualization of objects and processes Data explosion (Big Data), linked open data and the potential ofopen innovation Cloud services and app stores – the Internet is everywhere(smart phones, embedded networked devices, etc.) with newpossibilities for service delivery, augmented reality, etc. Social media – more direct and instant interaction betweenstakeholders potentially leading to new market opportunities andchannels, co-innovation, etc.
  4. 4. Roadmap for solutions: two parallel tracksOrganizational:• Business in the lead• Information Exchange &StandardizationTechnical:• Business process management• Service-oriented architectureBased on theFuture InternetNewGenerationInformationSystems
  5. 5. Coherence: management cycle
  6. 6. Geo ICT based planning & control(new in red) Reduction 7-10%• Comply with legislation; Open data Geo Input, development: year round register (private) Open map-layers: agri parcels, crop parcels, etc.• Value of the parcels (production capacity, alternatives)Production Value: weighing wheat, potatoSoil condition: EM36 etc; resistance, historyOptimal combination to be found out.• Planning the seasonCrop Parcel or nature/ waterbuffer?
