DEMETER expanding the pilots in Montenegro

Researchers from University of Donja Gorica (UDG) and DunavNET (DNET) expanded the vineyard pilots in Montenegro by installing IoT equipment in the Vinarija Cetkovic winery near Podgorica. The equipment includes a weather station, soil moisture sensors and pheromone traps with a camera. All of the measurements were collected with the AgroNET platform.

The vineyard is around 10000 square meters with over 3500 vines. The vineyard is only few kilometers away from University of Donja Gorica, which makes it a good “show room” for the DEMETER project and smart viticulture solutions.

This setup focuses on expanding the Montenegrin pilots for farm management in vineyards and orchards, providing pest and disease management tools to optimise pesticide usage and increase crop quality. Furthermore, pesticide usage data is collected and stored to enable a future transparent supply chain.
