EUXDAT offers both development and operational environments for agriculture-oriented service providers on top of a large set of data from satellites, UAV, in-situ sensors, meteorological data, land-use and soil. Concerning satellite data, Sentinel products are hosted and provided by Mundi DIAS on top of which EUXDAT e-Infrastructure is built.  When you develop a processing service […]

Dr. Marcela DOUBKOVÁ (Pessl Instruments GmbH) Management Zone maps are the first prerequisite for practicing precision farming and are defined as regions within the farmer’s field with similar yield potential. Treating regions with different yield potential differently during operations such as seeding, application of nutrition and protection or during irrigation was demonstrated to save resources, […]

In the previous blog post, there was a short description of an Agroclimatic factor of interest: Frost-free period, frost dates. In this very post, we focus on the calculation itself, which is run by Jupyter notebook on the EUXDAT e-infrastructure. The minimum daily temperatures are a necessary variable for determining frost dates. The daily minimum […]

The EUXDAT platform was initially designed as an e-Infrastructure supporting decisions in agriculture, with the main focus on the private sector. During the project execution we recognised that there is a large potential also for public services and that EUXDAT as a large scale infrastructure has also a potential to help to solve a number […]

One of the essential applications of remote sensing technologies in the agricultural sector is on plant protection. The various applications and management practices necessary for any type of crop can be greatly enhanced when supported by remote sensing. Some widely used examples follow: Satellite spectral imaging is widely used for detection of plant damage by […]

A short description of an Agroclimatic factor of interest: Frost-free period, frost dates The agricultural season is primarily determined by the period of suitable temperatures for growing crops. Temperatures above zero are a necessary condition for crop growth. Frost has a devastating effect on crops in general. In light frost (between 0°C and -1/-2°C) the […]
