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.

Organic weed management: A review of the current UK farmer perspective


In organic systems, farmers, advisors, researchers, and even policy makers, often cite weeds as one of the major constraints to production. This despite the enormous amount of formal research, both conventional and organic, that has been undertaken on weed management. In addition to this a large body of informal knowledge based on farmer experience also exists. In this context this paper explores farmer perspectives on organic weed management in the UK. The results presented are from semi-structured interviews with organic farmers about their attitude to weeds, their weed management strategies including information on changes in their weed flora over time and their success and failures. The work was done as part of a larger project that is taking a participatory approach to research on organic weed management in which perceptions and attitudes are important when setting research priorities and agendas. As part of this approach, information has also been collated on where farmers turn to find information on weeds and how they would like to see research results relayed to them. Their priorities for research are also listed and the implications for weed research programmes are discussed. (c) 2006 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
