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.

Modeling Precision Agriculture Device for Palm Oil Industry


The complexity of the palm oil industry, from planting, growth, harvest to the mill processing, has contributed significantly to its meager productivity. Weather, terrain, manual labor, palm oil species, age, pest and soil are some of the variables that large plantation companies have to endure, resulting in productivity fluctuations of about 22%. This paper reported the human factors considerations underlying the design and development of precision agriculture (PA) device for use in palm oil industry. The device is aimed to improve efficiency of triggering system at the pollination stage, whereby wireless sensor device and its decision_support system can help to identify the most productive time for the pollination process. A fully pollinated flowcr will produce more fruits and a higher grade breed will fetch higher quality oil. A holistic user-centered design approach is employed in the design of the sensor, wireless transmission system as well as the data management system. The system is also designed so that they are operable indoor as well as outdoor and easily interpreted by professional agronomist and farmer. While the productivity improvement is not yet realized, the Human Factors approach of user-centric design guided by Ergonomics Quality in Design ( EQUID) process has enabled a comprehensive design methodology to create a device and system for palm oil industry that is effective in application, efficient and easily operated.
