Networking

To date, no registered initiatives exist which aim to simultaneously activate multiple sectors and engage the entire cereal value chain.

The closest anyone has come was GrupoOperativoInnovatrigo (2018-2020 in Spain), with the participation of several members of this consortium. While GO Innovatrigo created a certification scheme in Spain, this project was focused exclusively on soft wheat and the implementation of a series of BAP to enhance production, and did not aim to directly benefit farm management through the development of innovative tools.

Some of the most relevant LIFE projects that can serve as a starting point on a comparative and constructive level for the present proposal are:

LIFE AGRICARBON

The LIFE Agricarbon project, led by AEACSV, established a series of objectives for the gradual introduction of sustainable agricultural techniques (Conservation Agriculture and Precision Agriculture) which would help to mitigate GHG emissions and adapt the agricultural system to new climate conditions resulting from global warming.

While this project shows many similarities with LIFE Innocereal EU, such as a reduction of field work, it does not engage the entire value chain from farmer to consumer, but rather focuses solely on the farmer.

LIFE MECAOLIVAR

The aim of the Mecaolivar project, led by UCO, was to design and manufacture innovative solutions that would help to reduce production costs, particularly for fruit harvesting, improve food quality and safety, and reduce environmental and occupational risks. Mecaolivar built a prototype of an herbicide bar for olive crops that was used as the model for the LIFE Innocereal EU prototype.

LIFE AGROMITIGA

LIFE Agromitiga, led by AEACSV, shares some partners with the current project. Its aim is to design strategies to mitigate climate change through carbon-smart farming, focusing solely on conservation agriculture in Spain and the development of tools to enhance the mitigating properties of soil as a carbon sink. LIFE Innocereal EU, on the other hand, is organized at the European level, and focuses specifically on digital agriculture technology, using innovative methods such as IT and NIR technology.

LIFE AGRIADAPT

We also found synergies with LIFE AgriAdapt in the use of satellite technology for climate projections, specifically, weather alerts that could help to increase resilience and mitigate the effects of climate change for livestock, herbaceous crops and permanent crops. Although LIFE Innocereal EU focuses solely on cereal crops, we feel that LIFE AgriAdapt has achieved practical and transferrable results that will be of use for the present project.

LIFE sigAGROasesor

The LIFE sigAGROasesor project has served as a technological benchmark for the present project. The programme created advanced GIS tools that provide personalised recommendations for the sustainable management of extensive crops. The aim of the project was to help farmers and farm managers to achieve the most efficient and sustainable crop yields by providing them an online platform with GIS support, where they can consult available technical knowledge, recommendations and specific advice for a given agricultural plot. The difference between this and the present project is that in the LIFE sigAGROasesor project, farmers must upload their data to the platform in order to obtain recommendations, while LIFE Innocereal EU an automated alert system based on satellite imaging to monitor conditions in the field.

LIFE CLIMAGRI

The aim of the LIFE Climagri project, led by AEACSV, is to demonstrate the viability and environmental benefits of agricultural management systems for irrigated land in the Mediterranean basin based on integrated measures to mitigate and adapt to climate change. It shares with Life Innocereal EU the aim of creating a guide to best agricultural practices based on results and findings, in order to disseminate and transfer the experience and management philosophy to other geographical areas with similar conditions, enhancing communication channels between researchers, managers, farmers and technicians.
