Agriculture has undergone continous developments in recent years due to the increasing demand for more environmentally friendly and efficient farming methods. One of these developments is smart farming, i.e. the use of digital technologies in agriculture. It includes the automation of work processes (e.g. by robots, drones), machine learning, sensor technology and the networking of devices and vehicles. As a result, smart farming will fundamentaly change agriculture and it is already increasing the need to adapt regulatory processes for the authorisation of agrochemicals.
Our current projects are
- Drone-based data recording from bird’s eye perspective
- Improved monitoring and observation studies of farmland species
- Publication: Precision farming and current EU pesticide regulation – how does it fit together?
- Publication: Precision application and soil organisms – a pilot study (currently in process)
- RIFCON Meeting at SETAC Europe (Copenhagen, 2022): Precision farming and terrestrial ecotoxicology – an open debate
- Presentation at Fresenius ECOTOX Conference (Düsseldorf, 2022): Precision farming and environmental pesticide regulation in the EU
- Presentation at CropLife Europe Conference (Brussels, 2023): Precision agriculture means precision risk assessment
- Chairing Session at SETAC Europe (Dublin, 2023): Precision Application – A Way to Reduce Environmental Risk?
- Presentation at SETAC Europe (Dublin, 2023): Precision application and soil organisms – matter of scatter or just chatter?
- Poster at SETAC Europe (Dublin, 2023): Spatially explicit population models support impact assessment of precision application – a common vole example
