The INNO-VEG project aims to increase the speed and uptake of innovation in the field vegetable and potato sectors by i) defining and implementing a new approach for delivering cost-effective research, ii) establishing a cross border innovation network which will create the framework conditions for innovation to facilitate uptake of the new approach.
The network aims to facilitate innovation between the precision farming/sensor technology industry, research organisations and the field vegetable and potato crop sectors across the UK, France, Belgium and the Netherlands. The network was launched in October 2019 and is free to join. We invite anyone with an interest in field vegetable or potato production, crop sensing or precision farming to register to join.Read more
The innovation hub is a forum for members to engage with other members in the INNO-VEG network. The online forums focus on smart farming in the field vegetable and potato sectors. Members can post questions or updates and can view and comment on posts from other members. The forums include translation between English, French and Dutch to help discussion between members from different countries.Read more
Last week, some great examples of on farm experimentation with innovative techniques were discussed during our smart farming information event. In this news item you can read the most important conclusions.
New guidance published on using crop sensing data to assess the performance of field vegetable and potato crops in farm experiments.
Use of crop sensors to assess field vegetable and potato crops
Inagro will use drone mounted sensors to collect multispectral images from experiments on carrots, leeks, spinach and potatoes
Experiments have been set up in onions, carrots, potatoes, leeks, spinach and vining peas
We invite anyone with an interest in field vegetable or potato production, crop sensing or precision farming to join the network
