Collecting and processing of wild-growing products is a process which cannot be controlled. They are not planted, irrigated, fertilized, sprayed and selected. The quality and quantity of the yield depends on the meteorological conditions and the peculiarities of the landscape. The industry of wild–growing products has little vertical integration, making it difficult to analyse data related to yearly yields. The solution we propose gives the wild-growing products value chain advantages that will increase its competitiveness, profit and sustainability. We will give a tool to the value chain (collectors-resellers-processors-merchants) to improve the management. In return they will share information about collected and processed type of products, quantities, qualities, geographical area.

Small farms have always been a pillar of European agriculture, but the value chain in the agricultural sector is highly imbalanced in favor of middlemen, hence penalizing small farmers, which are typically lacking or have poor visibility and/or commercial capabilities.
However, the increasing market demand of fresh, healthy, environmentally-sustainable and socially fair locally-grown foods represents a huge opportunity for millions of small farms. In this context, the AgriFoodFinder* project will help to close the gap between farmers and consumers trough a FIWARE-based App to match the offer and demand of food products that will help small farmers to innovate their direct sale systems (farmers markets, farm sales, etc.), promote their products and capitalize their proximity to end consumers.

Agricultural Portal for the Support of Preferential Purchase and Cost Effective Sale (AgriPortal)
The main objective of the portal is to facilitate cross-country preferential purchase and cost-effective sales in various agricultural sectors. Using the portal farmers and farms (of smaller size) could mitigate their purchase disadvantages inflicted upon by the negotiation power of buyers of large-volume agricultural products. The portal will enable small and medium sized farms to join forces and make large quantity purchases thus obtaining discounts. The system will also facilitate the sale of purchased but remaining, not used products. Registered farmers and producers (even distributors) could sell their remaining products through the system operating as a classified advertisement portal

AGRISHARES is an online marketplace (‘sharing economy’) for agricultural machinery, equipment and services. When unused resources are shared their value increases, for businesses, individuals and entire community. Local agriculture has so far been missing out on this approach successfully implemented in many other domains.
A farmer or an organisation is paying for the benefit from using a product without needing to own/buy the product outright (tractor, combine, etc.). On the other side owners rent out something they are not using and increase the profit. AGRISHARES matches renters’ needs and owners’ spare resources, optimising efficiency and reducing costs for both sides, thus creating a win-win solution. Additional assistance is provided though scheduling and record keeping tools, renting price calculator and a review system.

The biomass market is in continuous expansion. For example, only German biomass industry has an annual turnover of € 9,1 billion (according to EU Biomass Association). 11,5% of EU wood biomass is produced by microsized, 19,9% by small and 27% by medium companies and rest 41,7% by big companies. Also, there exist 12 million farmers in EU of which 7 out of 10 are under 65 years old.
The BIOMAS project will introduce the mechanisms that will open up the biomass market to small-medium European biomass stakeholders and strengthen their market position.
Through the BIOMAS platform and mobile app, biomass suppliers will be encouraged to enter the biomass market offering their biomass products that otherwise will remain unexploited due to lack of sufficient support and consultation or lack of appropriate means of transport. Using BIOMAS, they can cooperate with other biomass suppliers or biomass providers offering advanced biomass services. On the other side, biomass consumers will be free to buy and combine offers from multiple biomass suppliers, thus promoting competition.
The big picture is that BIOMAS will create a new market without intermediate resellers.
In particular, biomass suppliers/service providers will benefit from economies of scale since they will offer their biomass products/services on a European wide basis. Also, it will promote cooperation and competition. Biomass suppliers will easier establish collaborations and provide more advanced services competing with well-established actors in the biomass market. On the other side, BIOMAS will make life easier and cheaper for biomass consumers. They can find best-priced offers. Also, they can check the availability and location of biomass products and predict how prices decrease or rise over the year.

V-AgriFleet proposal refers to the development of an innovative agricultural fleet management application which has as a central functional feature the voice-driven provision and receiving of real-time information. The application is a decentralised fleet management tool with equal share of information among the fleet units, which operates in heterogeneous fleets independently of the machines’ brand names and specifications, and disengage operators from the manually interaction with the system by giving him the ability for a complete communication with the system (for both giving or requesting information) by his/her own voice. This application overcomes the drawbacks of existing fleet management solutions which are highly depended on the machinery brand names (and thus not applicable to heterogeneous fleets), completely centralised (providing information only to the central decision maker) and require the manual interaction of the operator with the tool’s interface which cost in time and concentration to another parallel task.
The proposed application incorporates the following FIWARE enablers: Complex Event Processing (CEP); Identity Management (KeyRock); and the Backend Device Management (IDAS). V-AgriFleet application marketing and merchandise efforts will be directed to the following target group of customers: farmers of cereals, industrial crops, and forage crops; contractors of agricultural machinery; and farmers associations that share agricultural machinery.

Virtual Cooperative is a WEB application, designed to help farms and conventional cooperatives to unite and join their forces in purchasing and selling goods. The whole concept is based on the ‘bulletin boards’. Users, which are farmers, vendors and public users are assigned with appropriate widgets which enables them to create ads, to filter among different ads and to communicate with desired users/groups.
Farms, as the central users of Virtual Cooperative, are creating virtual communities where they discuss their products and needs, and then finally joined in a larger group with the same interest they are posting an ad for purchasing materials and services of selling produced goods. Communities can be created around certain topic, at user specified geographies. Public users and vendors are able to see the ads on the ‘bulletin board’, to filter the desired ones, to get the notification if the ad with desired topics is published and to respond to them.
The benefits of the application are:

  • Farmers are uniting themselves, exchanging information, acting as a bigger user on the market strengthening their position.
  • Vendors are having a direct communication with users, having the opportunity to explain benefits of their product.
  • Public users and retailers are finally being able to choose the farm products which satisfies their requirements in the best way and to share information between each other by rating the farms.

In Europe, there is more than 3 million hectares of vineyards. The European Union is the world’s leader in wine production, with almost half of the global vine-growing area, in Hungary there is more than 69 000 hectares. The viticulture is an expensive and sensitive business, the Precision Viticulture (PV) can be the solution to their problems in the future.
VINEYE will make PV happen. We have a vision about an online platform which offers the on demand analysis of aerial images of vineyards made by drones for viticulture specialists. The aerial images are taken with cameras (RGB, NIR, multispectral, etc.).
We plan to identify vineyard management zones applying different vineyard management proposals based on our analysis. Our business model focuses on our core competence: to develop "wine-grower-friendly" application and services.
