2015-12-17 Spain: GEA ( Generalized Methods Against Weeds in Sustainable Agriculture) STAGE 1


 
GEA ( Generalized Methods Against Weeds in Sustainable Agriculture) STAGE 1

Description of the project offered: 
Excluding environmental variables, yield losses in corn are caused mainly by competition with weeds. Weed interference is a severe problem in corn, especially in the early part of the growing season, due to slow early growth rate and wide row spacing. Weeds compete with the corn plants for resources such as light, nutrients, space, and moisture that influence the morphology and phenology of crop, reduce the yield, make harvesting difficult, and mar the quality of grains. 
Furthermore, high weed infestation increases the cost of cultivation, lowers value of land, and reduces the returns of corn producers. In order to realize the yield potential of corn,
weed management becomes indispensable. Weed species infesting the corn crop are functions of a complex interaction among soil characteristics, climate, and cultural practices. These factors vary across regions and influence the composition and number of predominant weeds of economic importance to corn production. We propose :
Identify most problematic weeds
Create a Best Practice Manual for farmers
New Genetics options to improve the qualities of the Crops against the Weed proliferation 
Monitor and control nutrients
Robotics in precision Farming
Use Cloud App
