e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services.

Labour productivity in agriculture - value known or unknown?


The authors devote this contribution to selected questions of labour productivity in agriculture. They result from the indisputable role of this economic indicator (and its monitoring) on both the microeconomic and macroeconomic level, and also in relation to its impact on performance, competitiveness, etc. Labour is defined in classical theory as one of the primary factors of production, together with land and capital. The increasing importance of secondary factors has been highlighted by some authors, including information, technology, and the results of science and research. However, it is only labour which can be considered as the factor which connects all the other factors and exploits them -it would not be functional without it. Labour productivity (LP) is indeed one of the partial indicators of overall productivity, but it still stands at the forefront in both theory and practice. Regarding Czech agriculture, from the analysis (using the current method of LP monitoring) it was clearly shown that productivity of Czech agriculture has considerable reserves. It is alarming to see the low value of the Gross Value Added (GVA), suggesting considerably higher cost inputs. Furthermore, according to Eurostat data, over the period of nine years, GVA has increased in the prices of agricultural producers by only 5% (2012/2004), and the GVA in current prices even decreased by 15% (2012/2004). The result is the low level of labour productivity in comparison with economically developed EU countries (45.2% of labour productivity achieved in Austria -2012).
