The objective of this innovation project is to offer a ‘in situ’ soil analysis service and in real time, for greater agility in decision making, as well as establishing that it is common among farmers the use of data provided by the analytics carried out since this will impact directly on an improvement on their plots at the environmental level and, consequently, an improvement in quantity and quality in the production of its crops. To do this, a prototype for real -time data -based data based on the near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) will be built, which is a rapid and not destructive method for the prediction of a multitude of parameters in samples of various origins, applied in this case down. It is definitely that the device is able to apply the spectroscopy technique in the nearby infrared (NIRS) as a tool in the recommendations for the subscriber of forage crops by technicians and cooperating agents that advise the farms in order to to improve prediction models already obtained and develop new models in soil and slurry matrices.

Projects of the operational groups of the European Innovation Partnership (EIP), co-financed with the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) in the framework of the Rural Development Programme (RDP) of Galicia 2014-2020.
