Internet of Food and Farm 2020
The Internet of Food & Farm 2020 (IoF2020) project investigates and fosters a large-scale implementation of Internet of Things (IoT) in the European farming and food sector. With a €30 million budget co-funded by the European Union, the project has the potential to bring a paradigm shift in this domain, by drastically improving productivity and sustainability. It will demonstrate the added value of smart webs of connected objects, that are context-sensitive and can be identified, sensed and controlled remotely in the agri-food sector. The project has started on January 1st 2017 and will run for four years.
Donau Soja is delighted to contribute to this project by running in 2017 and 2018 a case study on the use of precision farming technology to optimise soybean production. A careful soil data collection and interpretation will improve the application of farm practices such as sowing or herbicide application which will in turn improve farm economics and reduce pressure of farming on environment.
