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.

A Crop/Weed Field Image Dataset for the Evaluation of Computer Vision Based Precision Agriculture Tasks


In this paper we propose a benchmark dataset for crop/weed discrimination, single plant phenotyping and other open computer vision tasks in precision agriculture. The dataset comprises 60 images with annotations and is available online (http://github.com/cwfid). All images were acquired with the autonomous field robot Bonirob in an organic carrot farm while the carrot plants were in early true leaf growth stage. Intra-and inter-row weeds were present, weed and crop were approximately of the same size and grew close together. For every dataset image we supply a ground truth vegetation segmentation mask and manual annotation of the plant type (crop vs. weed). We provide initial results for the phenotyping problem of crop/weed classification and propose evaluation methods to allow comparison of different approaches. By opening this dataset to the community we want to stimulate research in this area where the current lack of public datasets is one of the barriers for progress.
