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.

Data model for a decision_support in comprehensive nutrient management in the United States


decision_support Systems (DSSs) have been developed to aid planners in achieving a 'suitable plan' from a complex decision space. AFOPro is one such DSS, developed in the present work, for comprehensive nutrient management in the United States. More specifically, AFOPro is a response to the need to track nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) in commercial fertilizer and in the livestock manure generated by the Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs), applied as nutrient source in agricultural fields in the United States. This system may be used by the planner to make allocation decisions optimum for an agricultural field to meet the crop needs, while minimizing the possible impacts on the watersheds. AFOPro consists of two essential modules - (1) AFOPro Core, the nutrient management decision module, (2) AFOPro Web, the web module for updating the knowledge base. AFOPro is flexible, transparent and interactive and supported 21 states of the United States as of February 2005. The number of users of this system has grown to more than 350 nationwide since its first release in May 2003. (C) 2005 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
