Agroindustry, Europe


The LIFE GAIA Sense project’s main objective is to demonstrate an innovative, adaptable and affordable smart farming system. The aim is to reduce the consumption of natural resources and agrochemicals, while maintaining or increasing crop yields. The project will install 18 demonstration systems on farms in Greece, Portugal and Spain, covering nine crops (olive, peach, cotton, pistachio, potato, table tomato, industrial tomato, almond and kiwi fruit), under different terrain and microclimatic conditions. LIFE GAIA Sense will assess the performance of the system, for example, on soil, water and air quality; savings on water and pesticide use; greenhouse gas and other air pollutant emissions; and farmers’ incomes. The results will help the project team adapt the system for use by farmers in different regions. Although based on high-end technology, the system will be designed to be affordable for both agricultural cooperatives and individual farmers. The project team will promote the smart farming system to help ensure its adoption within the agricultural sector. By promoting more efficient resource use, the project contributes to EU policy supporting sustainable farming practices and the development of a circular economy in agriculture
