Demand Side Requirements for Smart Farming and Food Security, EPoSS/KTN workshop on IoT Large Scale Pilots

  1. 1. Requirements for Smart Farming and Food Security Cor Verdouw , Sjaak Wolfert – Wageningen UR, The Netherlands EPoSS Brokerage Workshop on IoT Large Scale Pilots London, 26 June 2015 1
  2. 2. 6/26/2015 2 What is TP Organics?
  3. 3. 6/26/2015 3 Mission : “To define a coherent and unified approach to tackle major economic, technological or societal challenges of vital importance for Organic Food and Farming competitiveness in Europe”. Only platform for organic, agro-ecological and low- input food and farming research & innovation Only platform that takes system approach to agriculture and food chains Only platform that strongly engages with civil society organisations Established in 2008 - recognised in 2013 What is TP Organics?
  4. 4. 4 Members of TP Organics Research Centers, Universities, Scientists, Advisory Services, Innovation Brokers Education and Science National Mirrors International Cooperation with the Agri Food sector group of the Enterprises Europe Network in terms of knowledge management, technology transfer, SME Instruments. Business representatives European CSOs More then 300 active SMEs:
  5. 5. TP Organics priorities 2016-2017 Full paper available on www.tporganics.eu Topic 1: Supply of organic seeds – Towards 100% organic seed Topic 2: Breeding for increased diversity and resilience in organic and low-input systems Topic 3: Alternatives to contentious inputs used in organic agriculture Topic 4: Eco-efficient production of animal feed at local level Topic 5: Innovative ICT tools for organic cropping systems Topic 6: Organic food processing concepts and technologies Topic 7: Solutions for resource-efficient primary production, based on the Internet-of-Things Topic 8: Public health effects of organic food systems in Europe Topic 9: Supporting the development of a diverse organic sector Topic 10: Agro-ecological and organic farming as means of improving food security and rural development in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia
  6. 6. What is Wageningen UR?  Leading research organization in the agri-food domain ● Food and food production ● Living environment ● Health, lifestyle and livelihood  6,500 staff and 10,000 students from over 100 countries  University and specialised institutes for contract research ● Intensive cooperation with the agri-food industry  Key partner in Future Internet FIWARE programme ● 1st phase: Smart Agri-Food (coordinator) ● 2nd phase: FIspace (coordinator) ● 3rd phase: Smart Agri-Food 2 (coordinator), Fractals, FInish
  7. 7. Presentation structure Introduction Key challenges of the farming domain Possible IoT application areas Requirements IoT in agri-food domain Concluding remarks
  8. 8. Sufficiency versus Productivity Conventional Farming high input, high output Organic Farming resource efficient, lower yields
  9. 9. Sustainable Food Security with IoT IoT promising to manage trade-off sufficiency and productivity Better monitoring of production – resource use, crop development, animal behaviour Better understanding of the specific farming conditions – e.g. weather and environmental conditions, emergence of pests, weeds and diseases Improving quality monitoring, traceability and consumer awareness “Ensuring the availability of, and access to sufficient safe and nutritious food, while sustainably managing natural resources”
  10. 10. A challenging domain for the IoT! Domain-specific characteristics  High dependency on natural resources / conditions  Natural products: growth, decay, high quality variations  High societal demands  Complex tracking and tracing  Phytosanitary & veterinary inspection / certificates  High volume production and distribution  Many SME’s in global chains  Complex and dynamic networks Farming = Big IoT High volume High variety High velocity

  16. 16. Presentation structure Introduction Key challenges of the farming domain Possible IoT application areas Requirements IoT in agri-food domain Concluding remarks
  17. 17. Requirements IoT in agri-food Governance Intelligence Connectivity Real-time Virtualization
  18. 18. Requirements Real-Time Virtualization Collect time and geo-referenced data retrieved from a multitude of diverse sensors Provide data from primary production to track record from farm to fork (end-to-end) Object data must be ‘reliable’ for different purposes of usage, and timely available Sensors need to be energy-autonomous and networked, and be able to operate in partially harsh environments Apply and foster advances in autonomous driving for plant monitoring and harvesting
  19. 19. Requirements Connectivity Create a platform to integrate object data with 3rd party data such as historical and forecasted meteorological data, soil databases, soil, water and air analyses and databases of weeds, diseases and pests Able to deal with internet connectivity problems in rural areas Based on technical and semantic (domain- specific) standards Seamless interoperability with backend systems and existing platforms (public or commercial platforms)
  20. 20. Requirements Intelligence Analyse and merge heterogeneous sensor data and feed the processed information into: – state-of-the-art agronomic and economic models for decision support systems – early warning and event management systems – simulation and predictive systems – reporting tools for legal and societal compliance Derive best practices* from the collected data and make them available on a platform * especially to increase resource efficiency and sustainability performance
  21. 21. Requirements Governance Comply with potential ethical/regulatory issues, notably related to autonomous processes Ownership of data, privacy and liability aspects Ensure security and trust Provide business models for viable exploitation of the IoT-based solutions
  22. 22. Presentation structure Introduction Key challenges of the farming domain Possible IoT application areas Requirements IoT in agri-food domain Concluding remarks
  23. 23. Some concluding remarks Multi stakeholder approach – demand-driven ecosystem of users, developers and researchers Consortium should reflect the diversity of the agri- food domain –Users across the value chain –Involvement of SMEs –Arable farming, livestock farming and horticulture –Organic and conventional Leverage existing communities and systems – e.g. FIWARE, FIspace, EBBITS, ICT-Agri – based on open technologies and architectures
