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.

P2P Key-Value Storage Synchronization Workflow for Agronomic Data Management


The use of mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, smart watches and notebooks in the agriculture sector is gaining significant popularity. Through mobile technologies, farmers are aided to quickly and easily communicate, advertise goods and services, as well as accessing agronomic data in soft-real time. Though mobile devices are a good source of agronomic information access and dissemination, the overdependence on wireless communication protocols for communication is a bit of a challenge. Due to the mobility of farmers, the wireless networks can experience bandwidth fluctuations and that can hamper data transfer and management in mobile-server (cloud) ecosystems. To address this issue, previous works propose mobile data storage to support information access in an offline mode. However, the question of how to efficiently management the data state on the mobile is under-studied. In this work, we proposed a mobile cloud architecture that enables farmers to manage data transfer and storage of agronomic data on their mobile devices in the face of the network challenges. Three different P2P Key-Value Storage methodologies are presented which are: 1) Bloom Filters algorithm, 2) whole state data transfer, and 3) exchange of delta (updates) only. The whole state data transfer is only recommended when there is stable wireless connection.
