Agriculture Working Group Meeting

ChairsTakuji Kiura [kiura AT]

Currently, Agriculture Working Group focuses on creating, managing, sharing, and analyzing big data in Agriculture. AgWG must bridge researchers in APAN and other groups, GODAN, W3C, OGC, etc. those keen to develop international standers in Agriculture. Unfortunately, we miss countries, leading big data and data sciences in Agriculture in past APAN meetings. In this session we would like to discuss collaboration other groups and how to encourage less appear members and new member to attend APAN.

    [ynwan AT]
    With the aid of today’s ICT technologies, quality agriculture to properly produce products is not only monitoring the land and climate characteristics, but also to enhance the production methods to achieve environmental friendly production, providing high-quality and high market value products. Quality agriculture in Taiwan involves agricultural production, aquaculture, animal husbandry, and recreational agriculture projects, which all have their unique features. Some of the typical projects will be introduced in this presentation. For examples, utilize field sensors to measure the environment, soil and physiological parameters and network controller to automatic and remotely adjustment facilities and the environments to suit crop growth conditions. Smart sensor network system provides a better environment for livestock welfare, monitor individual animal health, produce animal feed formulation, which achieve optimal feeding and management. The traceability of transnational foodstuff has become an important issue of worldwide concern. An agricultural product traceability system has been established to provide consumers quality agriculture products with transparent production processes and inspections. Agricultural 4.0 projects has been proposed and some of which are started from this year trying to integrate sensing technologies, intelligent devices, Ag-IoT and big data analysis technologies to construct wisdom agricultural marketing and digital agricultural service systems, which the scope and content also will be introduced.
