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.

An infrastructure for the development of distributed service-oriented information systems for precision agriculture


Precision agriculture (PA) involves using electronic technology to collect a large amount of data in the field for use in site-specific crop management. Major issues in the implementation of PA include interpreting the huge amount of data collected, understanding the causes of variability, and being able to propose sound strategies for field variability management. To help address these issues, a software infrastructure is proposed. It adopts concepts from software engineering with the aim of providing a basis for the development of information systems for PA based on open platforms, and on data communication and software interoperability standards. The infrastructure has two main components and a reference architecture for the development of distributed service-oriented systems. This paper presents and discusses the infrastructure and its components and presents a prototype application named yield data filtering, which filters yield monitor data and was developed as a proof of concept.
