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.

Preliminary evaluation of the effects of carbonized chicken manure, refuse derived fuel and K fertilizer application on the growth, nodulation, yield, N and P contents of soybean and cowpea in the greenhouse
Carbonized organic materials have not traditionally been applied to grain legumes such as soybean (Glycine max L. Merrill) and cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L. Walp) although the potential for favourable agronomic responses exist because of their high contents of available P. We explored the effects of carbonized chicken manure and carbonized refuse derived fuel (RDF) from municipal organic waste with or without inorganic K fertilization on the growth, nodulation, seed yield, N and P contents of soybean and cowpea in a vinyl house pot experiment. Growth, nodulation, plant total N and P contents were evaluated at peak flowering stage of legume growth. The application of carbonized chicken manure only increased seed yield by 41 and 146% for soybean and cowpea respectively while the carbonized chicken manure with inorganic K fertilizer increased seed yield by 53 and 185% for soybean and cowpea respectively relative to the un-amended control. The application of carbonized RDF only increased seed yield by 20 and 59% for soybean and cowpea respectively while the application of carbonized RDF with inorganic K fertilizer increased seed yield by 45 and 126% for soybean and cowpea respectively relative to the absolute control. The application of both carbonized organic materials with inorganic K fertilizer increased number of nodules more than their sole application. Results suggested that the application of carbonized chicken manure and carbonized RDF improved the growth, nodulation, seed yield, N and P contents of both grain legumes due to their high content of P. The application of the carbonized organic materials with inorganic K fertilizer further increased seed yields of both grain legumes suggesting that K was limiting the response to P from the organic materials in the experimental soil.
