DECISION SUPPORT TOOL

A guiding tool focussed on data collection and practical approaches to challenging situations farmers face. 

PrAEctiCe will develop a decision support tool (DST)to help farmers in their agroecological transition. An evolved decision-making process will enable local communities to address threats like climate change, food insecurity and biodiversity loss.

3 Phased Decision Support Tool:

Pre-project phase

Using existing validated technology relevant in environmentally sustainable development for data input.

Phase 1

The core developments will consist of customising and optimising data collection, while also developing dedicated instruments available to the public for system prototype demonstration.

Phase 2

The focus will be on developing high-level data fusion services to support the evaluation of farming practices; supplementary data processing mechanisms will also be developed, while dedicated artificial intelligence models will be tuned to meet the requirements within the living labs.

The transition to agroecology encompasses five levels:

PrAEctiCe will mainly focus on the first three, aiming at supporting smallholder farmers to get started on agroecological practices and helping those who have already begun to implement their activity. 

Level 1

increase the efficiency of recognising industrial inputs, mapping out and collecting data on agroecological techniques.

Level 2

substitute old practices and inputs with new farming practices, classified and recognised, and with the classification of environmental events (water usage, degradation, etc.)

Level 3

redesign the agroecology system, realising simulations and predictions of socio-economic and environmental impacts of the previously examined farming practices.

The 4th and 5th levels will address the consumer perspective, addressing the efficiency of the system’s performance and analytics.

PrAEctiCe project is funded by the HORIZON Europe programme under Grant Agreement number 101084248
