PILOT CLUSTER FIVE SUPPLY CHAIN
Full supply chain, Interoperability, Robotics.
The goal of this cluster is to run pilots across several sectors (fruit, vineyards, cattle, poultry) and to address both supply and demand sides of the supply chain. Such approach will enable validation of the interoperability of platforms and solutions used in different sectors as well as to validate interoperability of platforms used for management of on-farm and post-farm (supply chain) activities. The complete lifecycle of a product will be covered by inclusion of representatives of the recycling industry through the open call.

Pilot projects run under pilot cluster five:
Pilot 5.1 - Disease prediction and supply chain transparency for orchards/vineyards
Disease prediction and supply chain transparency for orchards/vineyards
Pest and disease appearance as well as their spread is one of the main problems in fruit and grape production. Disease control is usually based on experience instead of hard facts, although prediction models are available.
Pilot 5.2 - Farm of Things in Extensive Cattle Holdings
Farm of Things in Extensive Cattle Holdings
Current production environments for dairy and related products suffer from problems in relation to the lack of information from farms about animal well-being, crop and soil properties, inaccuracy of animal details such as animal identification and lack of transparent production processes.
Pilot 5.3 - Pollination Optimisation in Apiculture
Pollination Optimisation in Apiculture
Honeybees, mainly Apis mellifera, remain the most economically valuable pollinators of crop monocultures worldwide. Yields of some fruit, seed and nut crops decrease by more than 90% without these pollinators (Klein, 2007).
Pilot 5.4 - Transparent Supply Chain in the Poultry Industry
Transparent Supply Chain in the Poultry Industry
The supply chain in the poultry industry is well developed with several stakeholders involved. However, there is a lack of information about chicken wellbeing, medical treatment, feeding patterns etc.
