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.

Current Status of Cattle Shelters in Livestock Enterprises and Breeder Demands in Kars: I. Current Status


In this study, the overall structure of cattle livestock from all the districts of Kars was evaluated. The research data consisted of a total of 412 questionnaires of which 87 gathered from central district of Kars, 50 from Akyaka, 44 from Arpacay, 44 from Digor, 40 from Kagizman, 49 from Sarikamis , 47 from Selim, and 51 from Susuz. The study revealed that closed system shelters were the most widely used system in livestock. Among the 326 animal producers who used closed binded system barns "convenience in the management" ranked first reason (79.13%) to use this system. The other reasons-for the system were listed as "traditional" and "healthier than other systems': The study also revealed that the 26 livestock barns did not have any air ventilation and 15 barns had only one concluding insufficient air flow. A total of 43 barns surveyed did not have any chimneys and 23 had only one small size window. The reduction in the window number and size is associated with the severe winter conditions in the region. The research results indicated that hand milking is the most common method followed by portable milking machines and the usage of milking units found to be new in the region. Cleaning udder pre-milking and preservation of milk after milking are the two main deficiencies in the region compare to the standard hygiene rules and the milk is almost exclusively stored in plastic drums. As a result, Kars and its environs have been identified deficiencies and many lack in existing enterprises. Therefore, we concluded that animal husbandry in the region is hampered with underutilization mainly due to the insufficient farmer training. Hence, it is advisable to train the farmers on the ground of the animal welfare, feeding, health, hygiene.
