Transition To A Data-Driven Agriculture
for a new Dutch & Japanese Potato Circular Value Chain

Projecttitel: Transition To A Data-Driven Agriculture (TTADDA) - for a new Dutch & Japanese Potato Circular Value Chain
Projectnummer: LWV19250
Missie: Sleuteltechnologieën
MMIP: ST1 - Smart Technologies in Agri-Horti-Water-Food
Looptijd: 2020 – 2023
Projectleider:  Rick van de Zedde

The transition to a high tech-driven, circular agriculture is the key target of this research project. The project will deliver new sensor applications and AI tools that will realize a productivity boost via a data-driven potato production system within the framework of circular agriculture. In a promising international partnership, we will bring together plant science and novel sensor technology with AI and robotics to optimize the potato chain. 
The results of applied use cases will be disseminated with a wide/ global audience to convince breeders, farmers and processing companies how they can benefit from these high-tech developments, boosting sustainability and food security. 
The focus of the project lies on digitization of the production process of potatoes with multiple sensors, fusing the data collected with autonomous vehicles & drones. High tech sensors and knowledge from IMEC will strengthen this PPP via the OnePlanet initiative. With FAIR based well-structured data management systems we’ll open the floor for advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools. 
We will work on improved variety screening technologies, accurate potato yield prediction, improved crop care, development of a potato data passport and the improved quality of stored potatoes.
