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. If you have any comment or feedback on the bibliometric study, please use the online form.

Lessons From Addressing Challenges in an Agricultural Extension Scheme Using Mobile Apps


Organizations that give out loans to farmers are interested in seeing the farmers farms do well, so farmers can reap a bountiful harvest and repay their loans. In the case under consideration, the organization employs agriculture extension officers who should visit farmers at seven times at key stages during a farming cycle. The city based administrators of the scheme have no way of ensuring that extension officers actually visit the farmers at the appointed times and time intervals. Further, the farmers claims of poor harvests cannot be verified, leading to loan defaults. This project makes use of a multi-language mobile and web application to address these and other challenges faced by the industry in an innovative way. The mobile application can work offline and synchronizes with a cloud database when connectivity is available. The application has been deployed for more than one year. The design of the application, results and lessons from the deployment are presented.
