  • FUTURE FARM FOR FARM OF FUTURE Karel Charvat, Pavel Gnip, Premysl Vohnout, Karel Charvat jr .
  • Experiences and results based on: 12.7.2011 EFITA/WCC 2011 Praha and also some personal experiences
  • Agriculture and R ural are changing
    • The agriculture sector is a unique sector due to its strategic importance for
      • both citizens (consumers)
      • economy (regional and global)
    12.7.2011 EFITA/WCC 2011 Praha
  • Farming products
    • Basic
      • Food – cereals, fruits, vegetables,..
      • Energy - (yes or not?)
      • Services – tourisms,
    • Other
      • Public goods – environment, landscape.
      • Social goods – employment in rural areas
    12.7.2011 EFITA/WCC 2011 Praha
  • External drivers
    • Climate changes
    • Demographic (Growing population, Urbanisation and land abandonment)
    • Energy cost
    • New demands on quality of food (Food quality and safety, Aging population and health problems Ethnical and cultural changes)
    12.7.2011 EFITA/WCC 2011 Praha
  • External drivers
    • Innovative drivers (Knowledge based bio economy, Research and development, Information and communication, Education, Investment)
    • Policies (Subsidies, Standardisation and regulation, National strategies for rural development)
    • Economy (Economical instruments, Partnerships, Cooperation and Integration and voluntary agreements)
    12.7.2011 EFITA/WCC 2011 Praha
  • External drivers
    • Sustainability and environmental issue (Valuation of ecological performances, Development of sustainable agriculture)
    • Public opinion (Press, International Organisation, Politicians)
    12.7.2011 EFITA/WCC 2011 Praha
  • Opposite requirements
    • Food quality and safety versus Food requirements for growing population
    • Growing requirements for food versus Renewable energy production technologies
    • Renewable production energy demand versus Demand on more environmentally friendly production
    12.7.2011 EFITA/WCC 2011 Praha
  • Role of knowledge management systems
    • The objective of knowledge management is to help farmers to be competitive on the market in the sense of
        • required products, quality and amount,
        • to react on changes on the market
        • political changes and changes of related rules,
        • to respect requirements about environment protection,
        • climatologically changes.
    • It is also important to produce with the long term goal of farm sustainability.
    12.7.2011 EFITA/WCC 2011 Praha
  • Levels of information
    • Macro level, which includes management of external information, for example about market, subsidies system, weather prediction, global market and traceability systems, etc)
    • Farm level, which include for example economical systems, crop rotation, decision supporting system
    • Field level including precision farming, collection of information about traceability and in the future also robotics.
    12.7.2011 EFITA/WCC 2011 Praha
  • Levels of information s 12.7.2011 EFITA/WCC 2011 Praha
  • What are current research focus and what are main influence
    • Currently research in developed World is mainly focused on field level, eventually farm level
        • In practice, it could influenced farm profit in range of 30 percent
    • Possibilities to use macro level or external information could influence farmers profitability in hundreds percent
        • For example right selection of crops etc.
    • So it is evident, that focus has to be in future on work with external information
    12.7.2011 EFITA/WCC 2011 Praha
