|To improve their practices, farmers can experiment with new management strategies on their own fields. This can be in close collaboration with researchers and companies. Crop sensing with drones or other platforms, provides a powerful tool to collect reliable data of these farmer led experiments. The Interreg 2 Seas -project INNO-VEG supports this innovation, especially in the field vegetable and potato sectors, by providing guidelines and advice. These are based on our experiences and data collected within the project.|
In this closing event we will offer a bird's eye view on the project outputs, lessons learned and future perspectives. Meet the INNO-VEG network in real life and participate in our lunch with international networking opportunities.
After lunch, you can optionally participate in a drone workshop by OpsDrone. The project aims to lower the barrier to roll out drone services for the agri-food industry. During the workshop, we estimate the biomass of fresh leeks per hectare, based on multi-spectral data collected by drones or satellites. This information can serve as a basis for precision fertilisation. We also discuss a cost-benefit analysis that compares drone images with satellite images.
