The Collective Awareness PlatformS for Environmentally-sound Land management based on data technoLogies and Agrobiodiversity (CAPSELLA) provide open data ICT solutions for all food-, field- and seed-related actors in agrobiodiversity in a bottom-up, participatory approach. Following this participatory approach, CAPSELLA is involved in several pilot activities in the food, field, and seed sector.
One such pilot activity is the ‘Soil Health Monitoring Tool’, which is currently being co-designed with farmers from Greece and Italy. The web-app will interlink modelling of experimental data with participatory assessments by farmers to forecast the effect of fertilisation on soil health and the sustainability of production.
The aim of the application is to address the following needs of farmers:
The application will be composed of four main components:
