Grenzüberschreitendes Netzwerk THE FARM OF THE FUTURE - A VISION FOR TOMORROW Walter H. MAYER PROGIS Software GmbH, Villach (AT) ABSTRACT <> WORKSHOP 3Keywords: Agriculture, advisory systems, chain members, farm, group management,holistic approach, integration, land, logistics, management, precision farming.Contents: In the future European farmers will have to effectively manage information on and off theirfarms to improve economic viability and to reduce environmental impact. All three levels, in whichagricultural activities need to be harmonized with economical and environmental constraints, requireintegrated ICT adoption: (i) improvement of farm efficiency; (ii) integration of public goods provided by farming into management strategies; (iii) addressing of the region-farm interaction in relation to the environmental and cultural diversity of Europe’s agriculture. In addition, the communication between agriculture and other sectors needs improvement.Crop products for the value added chains must show their provenance through a transparent andcertified management strategy and farmers receiving subsidies are requested to respect theenvironment through compliance of standards. To this end, an integration of information systems is needed to advise managers of formalinstructions, recommended guidelines and implications resulting from different scenarios at the pointof decision making during the crop cycle. This will help directly with making better decisions as themanager will be helped to be compliant at the point and time of decision making. In EU-Project FUTUREFARM the appropriate tools and technologies will be conceptuallydesigned, prototypes developed and evaluated under practical conditions. Precision Farming as wellas Robotics are very data intensive and provide a wealth of information that helps to improve cropmanagement and documentation. Based on these technologies a new Farm Information ManagementSystems (FMIS) will be developed. As most relevant farm data will be readily available in the proposed information system, ormay be automatically integrated using standardised services and documentation in the form ofinstructions to operators, the certification of crop production process and cross compliance ofstandards can be generated more easily than with present systems.
