The UKSA-backed ACCORD aims to improve the management of crops by providing geo-targeted information to coffee farmers in Rwanda and Kenya. Source: FAO ACCORD provides proactive, geo-targeted crop management information to improve the livelihoods and incomes of smallholder coffee farmers in Rwanda and Kenya. The crop management advice, which is delivered via a mobile app, is derived from satellite Earth observation (EO) imagery with highly localised and accurate weather data and pest and disease alert models. ACCORD uses a combination of optical satellites, such as Sentinel and the DMC3/TripleSat constellation, to ensure the correct resolution of data is being acquired and balanced with cost-effectiveness. The information provided by ACCORD helps to make significant improvements to coffee crop quality and yield, as automated pest and disease warnings enable farmers to take both preventative measures and more accurate reactive measures when dealing with coffee pests and diseases. These improvements in crop management will help to secure higher prices allowing farmers to achieve higher incomes and improve the quality of life for their families.

In parallel, new test systems, procedures, and services will be conceived to support the overall development and to set up test reports and label-testing, which are important to the end-users in their purchasing decisions. The primary target users of agriloc are large-scale arable farmers, growing mainly small grains typically in crop rotations with corn and speciality crops (such as potatoes and sugar beet) in highly mechanised production processes. Two further market segments considered are livestock farmers (dairy or cattle) who have a sufficiently large farm to also grow their own feed (arable part of their operation) and contractors who run operations very similar to large arable farmers. The technology to be developed will also be of interest to speciality farmers who grow row crops (such as vegetables and fruits) and are often characterised by significantly smaller farm sizes and a lot of manual labour. Although the individual production systems can look very different, they all have common goals. The main driver for these users is the need to achieve a higher yield per acre and better crop quality. This implies an exact seed placement that allows the plant to optimally develop and this is enabled by a highly accurate, permanently available navigation and control. Secondary goals of these users include increased efficiency, reduced cost (e.g. of fuel, seeds, fertiliser and labour) and maximising uptime of machines. The pilot service demonstrations are planned in Germany. In future, agriloc services are to be provided over the whole of Europe. The intended solution consists of three main complementary parts, with each partner being responsible for one part. The guidance solution, enabled by GNSS and developed by John Deere, will be implemented in the steering system of the vehicle. The reliable connectivity solution, an Intelligent Switching Modem using a combination of terrestrial and satellite telecommunications and developed by Telespazio VEGA, will ensure that the guidance solution always has access to the real-time kinematic (RTK) data required. The test solution, developed by DLG, has a double function. During the development phase, it will be used for independent testing of the guidance, navigation and connectivity solutions and later for the test reports and label-testing, which are important to the end-users to make their purchasing decisions.

UAV and Satellite Imagery are analysed to validate certification requirements as e.g. area of farmed land versus “nature” or size of fields and plausibility of harvesting amounts. The service mainly targets farms who are Naturland certified and eco food traders who buy products from these farmers before the products are sold in the German retail market. However, the service might be of interest for all actors involved in the supply chain of natural and bio food wanting to ensure the right ecological farming with a high degree of nature conservation at the start of the supply chain and subsequently to have the right farmed eco product in the supermarket shelf. The service uses GNSS, Sentinel-1 & -2 Imagery, Plejades (50 cm resolution) and images acquired from commercially available, low-cost UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) systems. The methods compete with onsite measurements done by certifier engineers, i.e. processes which are expensive, time consuming and often difficult to realize in a statistical relevant way.

The ESA-supported BIOSCOPE project uses EO and satellite navigation (GNSS and EGNOS) to help farm managers monitor their crops and efficiently use fertiliser and crop protection agents. Source: FAO Farm managers need efficient and objective means to monitor their crops, to evaluate the outcome of field operations and plan how much and where to apply fertiliser and crop protection agents. For monitoring crop status, farmers can use high resolution images at specific times during the growth season. Bioscope will set up a reliable service of vegetation monitoring based on the integrated use of satellites and Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS). The objective of this project is to start up a fast, flexible, timely and reliable service that delivers relevant information with an advice to the farmer. For this purpose, BIOSCOPE chooses an appropriate mix of satellite and drone image acquisitions, to best meet the customer's requirements (e.g. timing, and resolution) based on satellite availability and weather condition. Thereby the service will foster a wider use of satellite imagery with a key role for data from the Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission. The BIOSCOPE service provides the complete chain from the satellite to the machinery that performs the task in the field. The remote sensing information is integrated in the standard agricultural processes as well as the standard agricultural software, guaranteeing ease of use for the farmer. Using standard data protocols to deliver the data from the BIOSCOPE service to the farm management systems will guarantee a significant level of acceptance among the farming community. BIOSCOPE makes use of Earth observation for the service itself and satellite navigation (GNSS) and EGNOS for auto guidance of the drone and registration of the position where images are taken. This information is also of great importance for geo-referencing and further processing of the data. Satellite Navigation is also used to deploy the services outputs (e.g. task maps) in the field.

It enables end users to collect and collate crop and soil data from a wide range of data sources including the utilisation of space assets like Earth Observation (EO) and Satellite Navigation (GNSS). FarmingTruth combines high resolution soil information with satellite-derived crop information in an integrated precision farming service. The inherited spatial and temporal variation of soil properties and nutrients is critical for determining variable rate strategies for crop production, but is typically derived from soil samples collected at insufficient resolution (typically 1 soil samples per 1-3 hectare). This leads to limited characterisation of within-field soil variability, thus often results in poor crop and land management. The proposed system addresses this in two ways; 1) utilising a new and innovative on-line soil sensor to collect geo-referenced, high sampling resolution data on key soil properties, 2) integration of soil data with other information such as satellite imagery of crop growth and development, weather data, topography and yield maps, to develop algorithms to determine rules for variable rate applications. These can then be implemented within the soil and crop information system. The vision for the final commercial system would be a web-based portal that would allow end users (farmers, growers, etc) to manage data upload and storage, then to select appropriate "rules" for their specific location and chosen crop using science-based decisions. The resulting treatment maps would then be uploaded to precision-agriculture compatible implements for application of inputs.

The FruitLook data helps a farmer to identify the most representative location in his block for such a system, and how to extrapolate the soil moisture information in this particular point. A number of companies in South Africa offer airborne vegetation index mapping to identify sampling areas prior to harvest. Aerial photography has a higher spatial resolution than the FruitLook data, but the high costs do not allow weekly acquisitions. The combination with FruitLook allows a farmer to have weekly updates on the spatial changes on his farm, while maintaining a detailed understanding of the spatial variations visible in the aerial photography. The FruitLook service package provides crop information on a weekly basis disseminated through the data portal www.FruitLook.co.za. It allows users to register so they only need to download information on the blocks they are interested in. Weekly updates on 8 parameters provide a comprehensive understanding of the spatial and temporal changes in a block. To create the parameter data, the system requires no inputs of the farmer.

In current agricultural practice, vehicle drivers need to plan their own path over a field. This can either be done manually by the drivers, based on their own experience, or by drawing lines using a guidance system. The first objective of the project is for the planning system to calculate and optimise the path through the field. The second innovation aimed at is to develop a system able to guide the transport units to a machine that is working at a precise location in a field. The third aim is to solve the problem that tractor drivers seldom know the field exactly. For this the system guides the drivers to the intended field and makes sure they are working in the right field. The guidance is done by an innovative street-and-track navigation system that is able to calculate routes on field tracks to bridge the last mile between the street and the field. The drivers of the transport units can continuously be informed by the system about which field the machine is working in and when it is moving to the next field. Consequently, the transport unit will always drive to the correct field.

Growing plants for food in space and on other planets will be necessary for exploration of our Universe. Stems and leaves grow towards the light and against gravity, while roots follow gravity. What role does gravity play in this process and what can we learn from growing plants in weightlessness? Which unknown aspects of plants will be discovered by this kind of research? Research in space focuses on the Arabidopsis thaliana plant, a model plant used as a reference for biologists. It has already been shown that plants 'feel' gravity at a cellular level, mainly in cells located at the tip of the root. Experiments on the International Space Station are investigating how this process works, from the primary step of sensing gravity to investigating how the whole plant responds. One of the experiments flown on the Space Station, GRAVI-1, looked at the smallest level of gravity a plant can sense. The results imply that plant's sense of gravity is amplified, because they react to very-low gravity levels.

The amount of supplied water is dependent on weather conditions, time of a year, crop type and soil type. One of the main factors affecting the level of hydration is the quantity of water evaporating from a certain area covered with vegetation. The level of this evaporation can vary within the wide limits during the growing season. The Hortisat service provides objective and easy to use information about moisture conditions within the indicated field, which allows to adjust irrigation time and quantity of water to real needs of a plant, and to optimally use irrigation systems and water resources, which translates into financial savings. Every crop field can be divided into distinct zones of relatively uniform combination of factors that affect crop yields. Farming practices show that the variety of soil types within a single agricultural field implies different agro technical treatments and different levels of fertilisers’ input required by plants. Therefore, in order to get the maximum income from crop yields, the provision of agronomic inputs should be properly planned and balanced, depending on the condition of vegetation in different areas of the field.

By investigating critical risk use cases concerning technological hazards in Belgium and food security in Senegal, the study aims to demonstrate that a “global” approach brings significant benefits, compared to traditional segmented approaches that impede the construction of viable business models. The Study has selected two different risk scenarios in two continents. The first scenario concerns Belgium, where, for centuries, industrial activities have developed in the middle of a dense population, raising critical concern about the risks for the citizens, e.g. accidents in a factory, ground instability caused by ancient mining and quarry activities. The second scenario addresses the tremendous challenge that low agricultural productivity and risks on the yield (weather, pest, losses) put, in Senegalese municipalities, on the local authorities, who often lack of reliable local information for anticipation and decision-making. Targeted users’ communities: local authorities (municipalities), the regional and national institutions in charge of risk prevention, mitigation and intervention, and the first responders of the Civil Security services. The stakeholders involved in the production (e.g. industrial enterprises and engineering companies in Belgium, farmers and suppliers of inputs for agriculture in Senegal) and in the services (e.g. experts, financial institutions) are also targeted as they are consumers of added-value services generating potentially significant revenues.

The project covered the development of a framework within which several complementary data sources could be integrated with existing farm management solutions. KORE also prepared the exploitation of free data from the Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission. This was accomplished by adding an Earth observation imagery data stream into the “EssentialsMap” service. Large variations in a field were detected automatically, prompting the agronomist to survey the field with a micro-RPAS. The resulting high resolution maps were used to give targeted crop advice or to produce variable rate applications of crop inputs including fertilisers. The KORE demonstration focused on agronomists so that the service could be refined with feedback from experts. A high-powered processing framework was vital to the development of KORE as a fully operational service. Access to large EO datasets was needed, together with bulk processing and integration with the existing web-based commercial application.

Standards also protect market access for fishermen and allow differentiation of their products through quality, responsible and sustainable fishing practices. Currently, fishermen are either using paper-based manuals, to satisfy current demands of the various national and international standards, or are not conforming to any standard whatsoever. The outcomes of this project facilitate the application of standards to the fishing industry. The objectives of the project were to provide opportunities to capture and input real time data while vessels are fishing and to introduce more vessels to these standards (e.g. HACCP, BIM, etc.) through the service. The objectives of implementing the key user requirements were to reduce paperwork, reduce costs, and make the system accessible on any PC, tablet or mobile device in a simple, user friendly system. The tasks were designed to make standards more accessible to a wide variety of commercial fishermen working in a challenging environment. Processor requirements regarding supplier controls, and information on vessels landing to them, were also addressed. The MarIA project included all key categories of vessels operating in Irish and European waters, as well the involvement of the fish processing, regulatory and fisheries development sectors. The system produced by the MarIA project allows commercial fishermen to demonstrate these practices in real time and underpin the quality attributes of seafood they land. This protects and enhances the market position of these products in relation to other protein classes, ensuring greater transparency and traceability to the consumer, whilst reducing paperwork and delays for the fishermen and producers.

To meet the demands of a changing world in the 21st century, and to save lives, water and money, the water management processes need to be improved significantly. An obstacle for improved water management is the lack of data on water availability. Water resources management can only be effective with good quality and appropriate data available. Therefore the consortium, led by HydroLogic BV from Amersfoort took the challenge to investigate and define services for improved monitoring, forecasting and control of water availability under the project acronym OWASIS-NL. During the study, two services were identified that help water managers to get the right information in the right time to the right person to support the right water management decisions: -Soil Water Storage Capacity Monitoring and Forecasting Service: provides water managers with historic, current and forecasted information on the soil water storage capacity. Based on this information the risk of drought and flooding can be reduced and decisions can be taken on the distribution of water. -Water Auditing Service: This service provides the end user with an overview that shows the water use from irrigation and compares this to the water allocation. Based on this information the user can monitor water use in large areas and can take measures to prevent excessive water use by farmers.

The sector has been under increasing public scrutiny and pressure whereas the rapid expansion of planted area to meet the growing demand can have significant environmental and social impact. Much of the criticism has focused on the establishment of oil palm plantations at the expense of high conservation value areas and high carbon-stock lands (e.g. intact forests and peat land). In response to this, efforts are underway on the certification of environmental sustainability of palm oil production, reporting of carbon footprints, and efforts to increase productivity of existing plantations, among others. Challenges remain in demonstrating compliance as well as credible carbon stock assessment. Moreover, the fragmented character of production areas, with a large number of smallholders distributed over large areas, often presents problems for ground audits as well as for a cost-effective assessment of productivity and fertiliser needs The PalmOilVision service aimed to strengthen corporate environmental sustainability and carbon footprint reporting, and to increase production efficiency in the palm oil sector.

This technological challenge was addressed by the University of Guelph and the University Autonoma of Barcelona, resulting in the deployment of a prototype HPC at the MELiSSA Pilot Plant in Barcelona. Lessons learned were then applied in the subsequent food characterisation and cultivar selection phases in collaboration with the University of Ghent to develop the next-generation controlled environment chamber and to advance the technologies required for food production in space. The Precision Plant Growth Chambers project addressed a major societal concern, namely the production of food in increasingly harsh environments given climate change. Technologies required for human space exploration yield significant benefits for terrestrial applications and commercialisation opportunities. This is especially true for HPC initiatives designed to produce food in the harsh environment of space. Similar harsh environments exist on Earth, such as the Canadian North and the deserts of the Middle East. A number of technology spin-offs based on controlled environment production strategies developed for space have been demonstrated and are currently proposed at the pilot scale in both the Northwest Territories of Canada and in the deserts of Kuwait. A more direct application of the precision growth chambers designed to address the technical challenges of high density food production is that of phenotype testing in the context of a plant breeding programme. Conventional field trials for various crops such as corn, soybeans, canola, and wheat rely on extensive (at least 2 years) testing to confirm the efficacy of the attributes for which the crop is bred (e.g. drought tolerance). Precision chambers can reduce this to a few days or weeks, and also result in a more reliable assessment of the phenotype as the testing takes place under strictly controlled environmental conditions. This significantly accelerates a breeding programme and reduces its costs. The design criteria for the precision growth chamber for phenotype testing applications were licensed to Syngenta on a limited project basis. MELiSSA expertise Because of its specific expertise, the Controlled Environment Systems Research Facility at the University of Guelph was responsible for the initial design criteria and deployment of the prototype HPC in collaboration with the University Autonoma of Barcelona. Subsequent food characterisation and cultivar selection studies in collaboration with the University of Ghent and the University of Bern resulted in the fine tuning of horticultural management practices for a variety of MELiSSA candidate crops.

The Salt Water service combines images from ESA's ENVISAT and the Copernicus Sentinel satellites with local in situ monitoring to improve the monitoring of surface water quality. The objective of the Saltwater project is to establish a sustainable service for monitoring and alerting water quality anomalies for aquaculture. The study aims to develop and demonstrate services to the market place for surface water quality monitoring. The service combines the data interpretation of satellite imaging and local field monitoring. Satellite imagery can provide more information for aquaculture companies about the water quality, such as incoming phytoplankton blooms that can cause damage to the fish stocks. The current practices involve water sampling in remote and harsh locations after which the samples have to be analysed under a microscope to determine the phytoplankton density and composition. This is a time consuming activity and requires specific knowledge for the employees doing the microscopical analysis. The Saltwater service also provides two types of in situ monitoring instruments. These instruments are based on the same type of sensors used in satellites, which makes them complementary. The in situ measurements are used to develop and validate the algorithms for detecting phytoplankton. These sophisticated algorithms are applied to historical and recent satellite imagery. The data is provided through a web portal that displays satellite imagery as maps and in situ measurements as time series.

The service consists of two main components: (i) an EO-based automated application for detection and monitoring of habitats affected by invasive species (esp. giant hogweed, Sosnowsky’s hogweed, Asian knotweed, Czech knotweed); and (ii) a mobile application that enables a GNSS-based and easy in-situ mapping of such habitats. he service is intended to indicate areas where alien species occur, to enable the monitoring of changes in range and distribution of such areas, as well as to provide information on effectiveness of invasive species control treatments. Four main groups have been identified as potential users: environmental institutions, communes and local administrations, agricultural entities, and water catchment management institutions. The service uses EO and GNSS: the multispectral Earth Observation data will be applied as an input for algorithms detecting invasive alien plants’ species and the developed application for smartphones will use GNSS to locate infested habitats.

AgSpace Agriculture has been processing and selling NDVI (Normalised Differentiation Vegetation Index), chlorophyll and soil brightness imagery to over 3,000 UK farmers. Optical imagery has proven popular and there are many examples of how variable rate applications benefit both the farmer financially and the environment. However, the one major disadvantage of multispectral imagery is its inability to function in cloud or at night and its inability to create a crop index that has meaningful growth stage information. The objectives of this service were to demonstrate the advantages of using both optical and radar satellite technologies to provide information on the general crop growth stages and detailed in-field variation required by farmers. Crop Growth Index data was provided via the existing precision farming toolbox, the CGI components were validated, a system capable of operating outside the UK was developed and the overall uptake of precision farming services was increased.

DryGro, based on EO and satellite communications services, aims to produce inexpensive, high-protein animal feed input using 99% less water than conventional agriculture.​ Source: FAO The objective is to develop and demonstrate a new satellite-enabled technology to produce an inexpensive, high-protein animal feed input called lemna. This uses 99% less water than soy production and is produced an order of magnitude faster. The pilot involves developing 6 lemna growing units in Kenya to validate the use of space technology and economics for production: Earth observation is used to anticipate changes in ambient conditions of the growing units, monitor leaks, protect infrastructure (from natural elements, wildlife and thieves) and assist in site detection. Satellite communication is used to provide secure connectivity, as farms are located in remote regions. The team are targeting the global animal feed industry with specific focus on industrial farmers and animal feed producers in arid regions, who currently purchase imported animal feed inputs.

Navtronics, a Belgium ESA Business Incubation Centre start-up company, is tailoring intelligent guidance for agricultural machinery using advanced satnav. As any other industry, the agriculture sector is always looking for ways to raise productivity and reduce labour cost through new technologies. One is the use of high-end Real Time Kinematic (RTK) satellite navigation to steer and control tractors and implements. RTK satnav increases the precision of positional data derived from the Galileo, GPS and Glonass navigation satellite constellations. By using the ‘phase’ information of the signal’s carrier wave, rather than just the satnav signal content, and combining this with a reference station for realtime corrections, Navtronics’ systems can provide up to centimetre-level accuracy. This accuracy far exceeds manual steering, resulting in better use of available land and higher productivity from human and machine. By ‘automating’ farm machinery, even unskilled drivers can achieve near-perfect results. The precision also avoids the double spraying of pesticides or even eliminates the need for pesticides altogether through mechanical weeding on organic farms – clearly better for the environment. The Navtronics BVBA development of hard- and software solutions for automated agricultural guidance systems is being done with the support of ESA Technology Transfer Programme’s Business Incubation Centre Flanders. The company is a spin-off from SBG Precision Farming in the Netherlands.

Yet, accurate measurement of precipitation over the relevant space and time scales remains a challenge. Soil moisture can be seen as the trace of the precipitation and, consequently, can be useful for providing a way to estimate rainfall accumulation or at least a new constrain to rainfall algorithms. In this context, the objective of the ‘SMOS+RAINFALL’ project is to ingest satellite soil moisture information derived from ASCAT, SMOS and SMAP into the latest state-of-the-art satellite precipitation products like those derived from the Global Precipitation Measurement mission (GPM) to enhance rainfall observation accuracy over land.

Agriculture is a very special market as all professionals are in principle entrepreneurs. Increased awareness, exchange between regional initiatives, stimulated bottom-up innovation and expressed user requirements provide ground for science and technology R&D to strive for excellence. Precision Agriculture in the ‘European Way’ is different from American or Australian precision agriculture. The former is more aiming at costs- and input-reduction. In this way Precision Agriculture is a key enabler of a more sustainable agriculture – meaning economical viable, socially acceptable and environmental friendly. By improving the adoption of GNSS-based applications and services in the broad diversity of European farmers, innovations that could also be competitive in other strong agricultural economies as Brazil, India, or China, are created. UNIFARM focuses on the requirements and needs of the majority of farmers, today and in the next ten years, aiming at bridging the gap between early adopters and the majority. This forum’s goal is to coordinate and support existing European local initiatives and create a platform of knowledge sharing and innovation stimulation across Europe (and beyond if needed).

The knowledge of the distribution, the extent of irrigated areas and the amount of water used by irrigation is needed for different purposes: 1) modelling irrigation water requirements at the global scale, 2) assessing irrigated food production, 3) quantifying the impact of irrigation on climate, river discharge and groundwater depletion. Notwithstanding its recognized importance, to obtain high-quality information about the actual irrigated areas worldwide is nontrivial and the problem is much more pronounced in terms of the quantification of the water actually used for irrigation. In this context, the objective of the WACMOS-MED project is to understand the potential of satellite soil moisture data in detecting and quantifying irrigation at global scale.

The product primarily uses data from free-to-access Sentinels and other space agency satellite missions. It can help key users in government or other stakeholders relevant to water management or draught and floods monitoring in understanding water availability. Comparisons of satellite-derived water extents over time can show areas of diminishing open water with variations of water height for larger water bodies. Microwave EO data has the benefit of not being affected by cloud, and when combined with other data sources provides an invaluable and practical way to monitor water sources over wide areas and in countries where similar information is often sparse.    Agriculture, Drought, Early warning, Floods, Water ManagementTitle - URLDigital Platform ServicesOngoingPixalytics Ltd. https://www.pixalytics.com/Monday, 14 December, 2020 - 08:17viewAfrica, Latin America and the Caribbean

Rwanda’s high-quality coffee is one of the country’s most important crops. More than half of Rwanda’s export earnings rely on coffee and tea, with coffee exports alone worth more than $60 million. However, changes in rainfall can devastate crops by promoting ‘coffee rust’. In Guatemala, 70% of the plants were affected in 2013 and the damage could be even more serious this year. The life cycle of the disease is up to ten years – but experts can bring the plants back to a healthy condition in two to three years. That is exactly the targeted support provided by WeatherSafe. They developed an app that provides recommendations to coffee farmers based on local weather conditions.” Using ‘big data architecture’ researched by ESA to handle datasets so large that they are difficult to process using traditional applications, WeatherSafe developed that initial concept into a set of products for different players in the coffee chain: farmers, processors, exporters and government agricultural departments. These hyper-local forecasts can alert farmers to rain changes and any diseases that might occur. With the support of ESA’s Business Incubation Centre in Harwell, UK, and the Agency's Technology Transfer Programme, the company has developed three products generated by software that compiles multiple data sources. For example, satellite data are complemented by specific expertise from universities and research organisations, and data directly retrieved locally from the targeted farms. The WeatherSafe Coffee Farmer Edition app takes advantage of the strong mobile phone networks in many developing countries. It delivers up-to-date, highly targeted and critical information and advice straight into the hands of the farmers. Thanks to the outstanding quality of its coffee and the size of the country, Rwanda is perfect for applying this technology. The hyper-local forecast can be tailored to each farmer to help them make the best decisions at the right time for their specific location and environmental conditions. Increasing the crop yields will help coffee farming in Rwanda to become more sustainable, enabling them to move from subsistence farming, where crops are grown for survival, to more profitable and sustainable business farming.

The technical key idea is to upscale from the investigation of local areas via high resolution aerial images to larger areas via satellite data. The service can provide large scale objective data which might be used as a common ground for discussions between opposing parties regarding questions of accountability for considerable economic damages, for the development of a suitable wildlife management or effective hunting regimen, to protect animals put at risk by wild boar, and potentially as a supportive measure in the prevention of economically disastrous outbreaks of epidemics in livestock. The service targets farmers, traffic authorities and insurance companies, hunters, and nature conservationists.
