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.

A short animation explaining some of the concepts developed in WP4 and how they may be applied to assist farmers is available on YouTube in English and German. The English version is also shown below:
