Connecting Agri & Food works together with ICT companies to develop applications for precision livestock farming. Our focus is on converting big data into the right information to be able to take targeted action and monitor data.
Connecting Agri & Food works together with ICT companies to automatically process data in and around livestock farms. Our focus is on converting large amounts of big data measured in real time with sensors into concise information, and then translating this into the right action. For example, we automatically convert real-time sensor data which sends data every ten minutes into weekly summary text messages. To this end, we work together with Eindhoven University of Technology, which previously developed this technique for ICT applications in human health care. We are also working on key figures indicating the climate of the barn and to see if the measured values are within the desired bandwidths for a certain period.
We expect that sensor technology and big data in agriculture will become very popular in the coming decades. That is why we continously develop our data analysis methods, in collaboration with ICT companies. Would you like to know more about what we can do for you, or are you an IT specialist and would you like to discuss the possibilities for a collaboration?

Connecting Agri & Food has invested a lot in building up expertise recent years, in order to map the environmental quality reliably and accurately. As announced in the final report of the Advisory Board on Nitrogen Problems of the Dutch Remkes Committee, livestock farms must gain insight into the ammonia emissions around the company. The aim is to arrive at numerical substantiation on the basis of measurements in and around the company. In addition, advice is given about an air quality measuring network, in addition to measuring systems with sensors in the stables. This concerns ammonia and in its entirety also nitrate, phosphate, particulate matter, odor and methane. Connecting Agri & Food contributes to the evaluation of the most suitable sensors for measuring particulate matter and the most important odor components. We do this for various clients. We are also involved in pilots, commissioned by municipalities and provinces, in which farmers and citizens discuss the measurement results together.
