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.

Agrochemicals - factors restricting the quality of water


The goal of this labour is systematize the research about the effects that modern agricultural production has on water resources in the EU countries and in the Republic of Serbia. Two parameters were observed: nitrate level released during the process of agricultural production and the way it affects water quality. During the first part of the research data from relevant institutions, related to the levels of consumption of agrochemicals during the period of industrionalization of agricultural production in the EU countries as well as in the Republic of Serbia, were gathered and systematized and key directives which regulate impacts of agriculture on water resources are also cited. Using the Reports of the European Comission about the Implementation of the Nitrates Directive from the period 2000-2003. and 2004-2007, the authors tried, presenting data tables, to point to certain results which were accomplished by implementing the directives that deal with water protection. The conclusion was reached that between the two reporting periods the nitrate level was reduced in water which had below 10 mg NO3/l, but the share of measuring spots was increased where nitrate concentrations above 50 mg/l were detected in EU 15. The second part of the work presents laboratory analysis results of water sample taken from agricultural area in the vicinity of Pancevo from 2010. The results show that although Pancevo belongs to the region of more intensive agricultural production in the Republic of Serbia, the concentrations of nitrates, nitrites and ammonium in the mentioned sample are far below the maximum allowed concentrations issued by Books of Regulations. Changes in concentrations will be observed during the following period.
