RECARE

RECARE

The RECARE project has brought together a multidisciplinary team to assess the current threats to soils and to find innovative solutions to prevent further soil degradation across Europe. The soil threats addressed by this project were soil erosion by water, soil erosion by wind, decline of soil organic matter (SOM) in peat soils, decline of […]

OPTIMEK

OPTIMEK

OptiMek’s aim was to develop and demonstrate effective mechanical alternatives to current practices in weed control. The goal was to decrease the impact of weeds on plant growth and to increase yields in organic crops by 5-10%, ensuring the continued production of selected Danish crops, such as garden seeds and plant beets. As a result […]

CLOVERCAM – map your clover/grass ratio and optimize it

CLOVERCAM – map your clover/grass ratio and optimize it

CloverCam is a new and intelligent camera system that can boost the yield from clover pasture by optimizing the clover/grass ratio. A camera mounted on a mower produces a  specific field map. The results are fed into a field management program (i. e. Mark-Online, by SEGES) and can be used to optimize the addition of […]

WEEDMAPS fast and effective weed mapping

WEEDMAPS fast and effective weed mapping

WeedMaps measures the weed intensity and gives a precise overview at the field and farm level. Through the website, it is possible to get an overview of all photographed fields and sort by the average weed density. With this information, it is easy to prioritize the fields for chemical or mechanical treatments (e.g. in times […]

SmartGrass

SmartGrass

The goal and vision for the SmartGrass project is to optimize N use in grass swards for both seed and silage production. In order to achieve this goal two overall issues will be addressed in the project: (i) development of sensor technology to recognize spatial patterns of crop growth in the field, and (ii) improving […]

RowCrop

RowCrop

RowCrop has developed the scientific foundation for improved control of aggressive annual and perennial weeds in a row-cropping system. In addition, RowCrop was looking to improve the productivity of nitrogen-fixing catch crops to enhance the nitrogen supply for main crops. The project developed , evaluated and demonstrated a new method of row-cropping that takes advantage […]

INTELLIPATHS in-field navigation app

INTELLIPATHS in-field navigation app

IntelliPaths is a simple app for smart-phones or tablets which optimizes the route in the field and gives driving instructions to the operator. In addition, the field work can be monitored via the  www.myintellipaths.info website, where real-time driving efficiency and expected time of completion are displayed. Different machine profiles can be setup with IntelliPaths (tractor […]
