While industrialized countries produce crops at high yields using precision agriculture and high-tech greenhouses, low- or mid-tech growers world-wide have limited knowledge and grow under marginal conditions (f.i. drought), having lower yields. Our long-term goal is to let growers world-wide have access to high-tech tools and expertise in order to achieve a sustainable higher production making them more competitive. The Internet of Things (sensors) and the smart phone can bring “expert knowledge” within reach of such farms. Big Data processing and Deep-Learning can disclose aggregated knowledge from science and real-time cloud data in order to advise farmers on how to optimize crop management. A cloud-based advisory service gives rapid and on-site access to all data needed for integrated plant production. In the PPP we will develop simple, customised to farmer group knowledge levels, and affordable hard- and software tools for farmer use based on innovative high-tech concepts, aggregated cropping knowledge in cloud-based databases, and advisory services based on deep learning and models for crop, water and fertiliser and pest management. Target groups are (emerging) mid- and low-tech growers having access to internet and who jointly contribute data and information, as well as advisors and companies that may develop new business models for a remote service.
