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.

Results from Survey Instruments Used to Assess Technology Adoption for Tree Fruit Production


Advances in horticultural production technology are often hindered by slow grower adoption Low adoption rates are largely the product of skepticism, which can lead to weaknesses in the commercialization process and affect future research and product development To better understand industry concerns and design effective outreach methods, an information technology survey was designed as part of the U S Department of Agriculture Specialty Crop Research Initiative project titled Comprehensive Automation for Specialty Crops (CASC) This study outlines the survey results from 111 participants at tree fruit meetings in the Pacific northwestern and eastern United States in 2009 Many of the misgivings about new automated technologies, such as equipment cost And reliability of harvest assist, sensor systems, and fully automated harvest machinery, were consistent across the country Subtle differences appeared between the eastern U S and Pacific north western U S responses, including justifiable equipment price points and irrigation and pest concerns, these are likely attributable to regional differences in climate, operation size and cue, and marketing strategies These survey data will help the project team better address grower concerns and uncertainty on a regional and national level, there by improving adoption speed and rates after CASC developed technologies are rolled out
