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.

Web and mobile technologies in a prototype DSS for major field crops


Nowadays policy makers, agronomists and farmers are facing the challenge of restructuring the land use as a follow up of the newly introduced free market rules derived from recent policy revisions. In many cases, agricultural land is mainly covered by crops that are cultivated for decades and the selection of alternative cultivations seems to be a complex problem, mainly due to lack of proposals fitting market needs and farmers experience. Thus, the restructuring of the agricultural land and the formation of a well-balanced and sustainable agriculture, according to the new market demands, constitutes an important research area. The present paper proposes a Web-based decision_support System capable to support mainly the farmers in the selection procedure of the appropriate alternative crops. The system goes further and provides the information needed and supports the farmer for the whole cultivation period. Moreover, the proposed system provides services through mobile phones since their penetration shows high rates even in population groups like farmers. The analysis, design and implementation of the proposed decision_support System, as well as the evaluation, are presented and discussed. A selection of five crops (i.e. maize, soybean, sorghum, rapeseed, and cardoon). considered to be reasonable alternatives to traditional cultivars for Greek farmers, was made and related data included into the system.
