In this edition of our interview series, we catch up with Diego Guidotti from Agricolus. Diego is the leader of the Pilot Cluster 3 within DEMETER.
The cluster supports farmers in protecting the health and the quality of production, focusing on several fruit and vegetables crops in several European countries. Two pilots are crop oriented: olive and corn pilots will focus on a pest affecting a set of tree crops and one pilot will focus on Precision Farming for a set of Mediterranean tree crops. The pilots will involve the integration of several technologies: existing farming digital platforms, IoT sensor networks, model and Decision Support Systems, Remote Sensing Data, advanced data analysis tools.
Diego gives an overview of the pilot cluster and discusses in more detail the pilot that he is leading focused on Decision Support System to support olive growers.
