Editor's Notes

  • Romania is a country located at the crossroads of Central, Eastern, and South-eastern Europe. It shares land borders with Bulgaria to the south, Ukraine to the north, Hungary to the west, Serbia to the southwest, and Moldova to the east and has its opening to the Black Sea. The area is of 238,391 km2 and comprises: 61.3% agricultural land (cca. 14,6 mil. ha, of which 64.2% arable land, 32.9 % meadows and natural grasslands and 2.7% plantations of trees and vineyard); 28.3% forests and other forestry vegetation lands; 10.4% the built area of the localities, waters, roads, railways and unproductive lands. From the point of view of its area, Romania is an average country in EU 27 (5.41% of the area EU27). The territory of Romania includes 5 bio-geographical regions (steppe, Black Sea, Pannonia, continental and alpine) of the 11 European bio-geographical regions. Out of the total area of the country, around 87.1% is the rural area (according to the definition from the national legislation) that comprises communes, as administrative-territorial units, together with its component villages, and on this territory 45.0% of the Romanian population lived in 2012. The allocation per geographical area is balanced: 33% plain area (up to 300 m altitude), 37% hill area (300- 1000 m) and 30% mountain area (over 1000 m altitude).
  • A functional and effective agricultural advisory system is an important element for the development of agriculture and rural areas in Romania. In the 2014-2020 programming period, the actions of advisory services and information provided by the national public agricultural advisory system play an essential role in the successful implementation of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) in general, but also in complementing the actions that National Rural Development Programme NRDP 2014-2020 supports.
  • The first question was related to the smart farming applications that the stakeholder’s are aware, and they replied by “Yes” or “No” to the following examples give in the questionnaire: the water deficit detection and control, cattle monitoring and management, crop management, weed detection and control, climate conditions monitoring, pest and diseases detection and rural property management. In the picture below is depicted the number of replies to the above mentioned question (Fig. 12).
    The second question was related to the smart farming technologies in South-East region from Romania that the stakeholder’s are aware, and they replied by “Yes” or “No” to the following examples give in the questionnaire: data or images from sensors, digital maps, Global Positioning Systems, automated systems, robotic systems, drones and software and applications for farm management. In the picture below is depicted the number of replies to the above mentioned question (Fig. 12).
  • The next question was related to the awareness about the advantages provided by using smart farming. The 90.9% of the stakeholders appreciated that can increase productivity, 60.0% considered the reducing of the environmental impact, 69.1% thought that can lead to high quality products, 72.7% appreciated that can lead to cost reduction and 83.6% in an increased profit, 60.0% considered that can improve activity planning and 85.5% appreciated that can increase labour efficiency.
    Another question was related to the awareness about the agricultural fields that need smart farming technologies in SE Region of Romania.

  • the stakeholders were asked to specify the need (to a scale from 1 to 5) to adopt smart technologies in livestock production systems.
    the stakeholders were asked to specify the need (to a scale from 1 to 5) to adopt smart technologies in crop production systems (Fig. 17).
    To continue the agriculture fields, the stakeholders were asked to specify the need (to a scale from 1 to 5) to adopt smart technologies in agricultural engineering sector.
    In the end, the stakeholders were asked to specify the need (to a scale from 1 to 5) to adopt smart technologies in agricultural economic specific field (Fig. 19). Their replies first ranked, with maximum points 5 was, in agribusiness, second place on agricultural management, third on environmental management, forth on commodity trading/markets and fifth on financial sector management.
    The last question was related to the awareness if farmers from SE Region of Romania would like to adopt smart farming technologies. As predicted, the percentage of 93 of the stakeholders that replied “yes” at this question is eloquent about the need of adopting smart farming technologies.
