Nowadays precision farming has become a necessary tool for sustainable development of agriculture. On this subject, geospatial information is fundamental in order to support advanced technologies for targeted crop improvement.

In this context, the Conference aims to explore new frontiers of agricultural computerization. The attention is focused on Geographical Information Systems and their linked applications, created to support future agricultural practices.

There will be showed national and international case studies, in order to allow operators and stakeholders to know the recent progresses on precision farming technologies. Advantages and future development perspectives will be highlighted. A particular attention will be payed to the brand new DSS. This system, created by Assoprol Umbria, has been improved for the fight against the Olive fruit fly (Bactrocera oleae). DSS represents an important join-venture between public and private sector. Moreover it represents an important instrument to support decisions in line with European legislation and policies. Indeed, new orientations of European policies are focused on improving agricultural innovation through the diffusion of Information and Communications Technology (ICT).

Libelium is the Spanish company which has developed the sensor platform Waspmote Plug and Sense. TeamDev has chosen Libelium and its Waspmote platform in order to collect targeted, accurate weather information focused on single plots. This information is fundamental to support the agricultural sector management.

Waspmote Plug & Sense collects sensors data about soil and leaves moisture, as well as temperature, precipitations, atmospheric pressure and so on. This platform keeps continuously under control the environment in which crop grows. Moreover it offers a multiplicity of channels for real-time connections to the Agricolus suite. Among these channels there is 3G and the brand new LoRaWAN.

Libelium has proved to be a reliable and competent partner whose commitment is to find innovative solutions.
