Alliance for Internet of Things Innovation (AIOTI) | WG06 – Smart Farming and Food Security
As part of its ongoing move to simplify and modernise the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), the European Commission is adopting new rules that will for the first time expressly allow a range of modern technologies to be used when carrying out checks for area-based CAP payments. This includes the possibility to completely replace physical checks on farms with a system of automated checks based on analysis of satellite-based data in combination with Internet of Things (IoT) and other digital technologies.
The present paper addresses this topic from the perspective of technical feasibility. An overview of the most relevant experiences, recently finished or ongoing, is provided, as a good basis on which further implementations in Europe can be built. Key considerations and recommendations for the future are finally presented.
