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.

Pineapple farmers' access to and use of information have great income generation potentials for farmers, expansion of local industries and foreign exchange earnings for Nigeria. This study, thus investigated farmers' information sources and usage. Interview schedule was used to collect data from 119 respondents which constituted 27% of all pineapple farmers in the study area. Results show respondents were mostly male (60%), married (66%), with one form of education or another (X = 3.09, SD = 1.46), and aged 28 years and above (71%). Relationships exist between respondents' selected personal characteristics and information sources and usage, years of farming and farming activities challenges. Pineapple farmers will source and use information from easily available and accessible sources such as radio and newspaper. Improving the knowledge base of farmers will facilitate information sharing amongst them. Research and extension should therefore develop contents in both radio and newspapers that will expand farmers' knowledge base and practical skills for improved pineapple production.
