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.

An Intelligent Agri-Information Dissemination Framework: An e-Government


Farmers, specifically of developing countries, face problems like soil attrition, yield losses, reduced market prices, increased pesticides costs and economic barriers. These problems prevent these cultivators from adopting modern farming strategies and hence render them vulnerable. However, these farmers can use pre-hand information to make informed decisions with respect to all agricultural operation. We propose an Agriculture Information System (Agr-IS) based on ICTs and e-government infrastructure for the benefit of rural farmers by educating them on different aspects of Sustainable Agriculture (SA). The core functionality of proposed information system is supported by an intelligent Agro-DSS which receives information for various governmental agencies and dispatches the relevant information to the lower end farmers. Agro-DSS works in collaboration with Agr-IS, various other open source software (like Asterisk server), and SOA-based e-government infrastructure for the dissemination of up-to-date agricultural information in a readily accessible and easily understood form, to farmers, agricultural researchers, and advisers. In order to improve the governmental involvement in agriculture to leverage agricultural reforms, the capabilities of SOA are exploited using SOA-based e-Government Infrastructure. It will help significantly in bridging the gap between rural farmers and governmental agencies. With a diverse biophysical and socioeconomic data and knowledge, the presented infrastructure will help reduce the uncertainty and improve decision making process by providing access to data, procedures and analytical capability.
