images magazine news 2015 pw1 2015 Belgie lThis summer, a project was started with the intriguing name iPot. Within the framework of this project, Belgapom, the Federation for the Belgian Potato Trade and Processing Industry, plans to develop a web-based geoinformation platform in the coming three years. This platform will make it possible to map out the cultivation of potatoes in Belgium. Together with the Walloon and Flemish Research Institutes VITO, CRA-W and Ulg, Belgapom wants to link plot details via precision farming to satellite and/or drone data. The purpose of the project is to evaluate the cultivation results independently in order to be able to monitor them more accurately.
