Report on cost structure and economic profitability of selected precision farming systems

This paper analyzes the economic profitability of selected Precision Farming (PF) technologies — site-specific management of weed, lime and nitrogen — Auto Guidance and Controlled Traffic Farming at farm scale.

A multi-perspective report on application of advanced farm information systems – economics, usability and acceptability

Precision farming and the GPS-system have been prevalent in Europe for about 10-20 years. The early adopters started with yield monitoring and mapping and continued with variable rate application of lime and nitrogen. Later on autoguidance and controlled traffic farming have been adopted among farmers in mainly America, Australia and Europe.

Socioeconomic impact of widespread adoption of precision farming and controlled traffic systems

This report examines the socioeconomic impact from implementing different precision farming and controlled traffic systems in arable farming for different crops including:  wheat, maize, sugar beet and rape seed among Danish farmers. 

Technology assessment of PF and information management systems in open natural environments:Farmer’s use of time for management

The objective of this study is to assess farmer’s adoption of Farm Management Information Systems and its impact on labour time. It is specified how farmers use their office hours on the farm and how different farm characteristics affect the time spend at the office. The farm and farmers characteristics in focus are age and education of the farmer as well as type and size of the farms. The report is based on a multinational survey that was carried out in autumn 2009 with 4 countries, Denmark, Germany, Greece and Finland and presented in deliverable 5.2.

Environmental impact with environmental indicators - with precision farming and controlled traffic systems

This report examines the environmental impact from implementing different precision farming systems in arable farming for different crops, wheat, maize, sugar beet and rape seed.  

 

Initial costs structure and factor productivity-Potential savings/benefits from better precision farming and information managem

This paper describes the initial costs structure and potential benefits and savings from different precision farming technologies and farm information management systems (FIMS) in arable farming. Focus is on the potential costs and benefits at the farm level of different intelligent and information-intensive systems used in the production of commonly grown crops. So far most of these commercial and pre-commercial systems have been applied in cereal production, but for some of these systems they may be adapted for use in other cropping systems.  

 

Initial technology assessment of farmers’ perception of information‐intensive farming systems and legal requirements

This paper presents descriptive results of a survey conducted about the application of management information systems in agriculture and the role of precision farming. The survey has been carried out in autumn 2009 in following countries: Greece, Germany, Finland and Denmark with 75, 74, 78 and 182 respondents respectively.

System description of proposed Farm Management Information System (FMIS)

The outcome of this work package includes a description of a farm management information system which allows more intelligent decisions about the use of different input sources, treatments and information management systems (incl. precision farming systems) for a number of crop rotation systems. To achieve this, it was decided to assess the cost structure and potential benefit for these crop rotation systems for different technologies. Focus is on commonly produced crops in different European regions including wheat, rape seed, sugar beets, maize and other cereals, cotton or other crops.
