The overall objective of AgriBIT is to delivers a range of customisable and modular solutions suitable for various types of agricultural uses and brands of crops through six defined objectives:
  • Market and needs analysis
  • Higher precision location services
  • Affordable, European source, high precision Galileo and EGNOSS GNSS receiver
  • Bundle of PA services for farmers and farm advisors
  • Strategy for services uptake
  • Open service-oriented platform

Pilots

AgriBIT includes an "20"-month piloting phase in peach production (Greece), tomato fields (Portugal) and vineyards (Italy), whose goal is not only to evaluate the adaptation of its services to user needs, but also create impact in key agricultural sectors.

Greek Pilot
Peach orchards

The pilot in Greece focuses on the full management of peach orchards, benefiting from the capability to overcome the limitation of EO and UAV data which cannot provide accurate results in orchards crops due to tree canopy shape.

Portuguese Pilot
Tomatoes

The pilot in Portugal focuses on the detailed management of diseases, speeding up the detection of diseases earlier during the growth period and delivering the ability to apply corrective measures earlier than without the use of GNSS services, i.e. before the harvest.
