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.

A framework of information technology-based agriculture information dissemination system to improve crop productivity


The Indian farming community is facing a multitude of problems to maximize crop productivity. In spite of successful research on new agricultural practices concerning crop cultivation, majority of the farmers are not getting upper-bound yield due to several reasons. One of them is that expert/scientific advice regarding crop cultivation is not reaching the farming community in a timely manner. It is true that India possesses valuable agricultural knowledge and expertise. However, a wide information gap exists between research and practice. Indian farmers need timely expert advice to make them more productive and competitive. In this article, we have made an effort to present a solution to bridge the information gap by exploiting advances in information technology. We propose the framework for a cost-effective agricultural information dissemination system (AgrIDS), to disseminate expert agricultural knowledge to the farming community in order to improve crop productivity. AgrIDS is a scalable system which can be incrementally developed and extended to cover all the farmers (crops) of India in a cost-effective manner. It enables the farmer to cultivate a crop with expertise, as that of an, agricultural expert, by disseminating both crop and location-specific expert advice in a personalized and timely manner. With AgrIDS, the lag period between research efforts and practice can be reduced significantly. Finally, the proposed system assumes great importance due to the trend of globalization, as it aims to provide expert advice which is crucial to the Indian farmer to harvest different kinds of crop varieties based on the demand in the world market.
