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.

Promoting Food Security Through Improved Analytics


Food and agriculture are growing issues due to climate change, flattening yield productivity, and the link between food availability and national security. Most technology and scientific development related to improving agricultural yield has been very narrowly focused on a specific area such as sensors or imaging or genetics. In this paper, we argue that the technology to improve yields already exists and that the most important requirement is to advance the integration and analysis of multi-modal data such as meteorological, sensor, image, and genetic information in real-time in a distributed (lab to farm) manner. We examine multiple trends related to processing, storage, imaging, genomic and proteomic data, and farming technology. By analyzing the relationship of these trends we provide a set of foundational needs or focus areas beyond simple predictive algorithms that are necessary to improve yields. This paper shows that we are relatively close to being able to increase crop yields and improve food production through better use of existing technologies. (C) 2015 The Authors.
