The Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, Phil Hogan, and the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Luis Planas, met in La Rioja on Monday February 4th to take part in the conference “Internationalisation Strategy of La Rioja, The New CAP”.  They also had the opportunity to see a sample of the projects being carried out in the community with funding from innovative cooperation aid of the Rural Development Programme (RDP) 2014-2020.

Leon Arnedo, C.E.O. of Engineering and Innovation, presented two of the projects in which his company Encore participates as an innovative partner (Oidio and Nitrocon). The aim of these grants, which have been introduced as a novelty in this period of the RDP, is to encourage synergies so that several people, whether individuals or legal entities, work together to achieve a common goal.

AFarCloud. Aggregate Farming in the Cloud Saturday October 13th, 2018

AFarCloud addresses the urgent need for a holistic and systematic approach. It will provide a distributed platform for autonomous farming, which will allow the integration and cooperation of Cyber Physical Systems in real-time for increased agriculture efficiency, productivity, animal health, food quality and reduced farm labour costs. This platform will be integrated with farm management software and will support monitoring and decision-making, based on big data and real time data mining techniques.

AFarCloud also aims to make farming robots accessible to more users by enabling farming vehicles to work in a cooperative mesh, opening up new applications and ensuring re-usability, as various standard vehicles can combine their capabilities in order to boost farming efficiency.
