ICT becomes a key driver for innovation Location-based monitoring and service delivery through GPS Internet of Things (IoT) – everything/everyone gets connected, M2M communication leading to autonomously communicating devices and virtualization of objects and processes Data explosion (Big Data), linked open data and the potential of open innovation Mobile, Cloud services and App stores – the Internet is everywhere (smart phones, embedded networked devices, etc.) with new possibilities for service delivery, augmented reality, etc. Social media – more direct and instant interaction between stakeholders potentially leading to new market opportunities and channels, co-innovation, etc.

Iterative Implementation
KodA - some examples of activities • set up of a benchmark system for farmers • set up of an improved bonus system for farmers to pay for better quality and help them to attain that quality • stimulate farmers to register data electronically • develop methods and technologies for sitespecific farming
Example business cases Crop protection • Precise (mechanical) systems for weeding (within row) • Site-specific detection and control of pests and diseases • Robot for detecting viruses in tulips Fertilization • Within-row fertilization • Variable rate fertilization with the aid of different sensor technologies (including soil-moisture sensors) • Precise application of organic fertilizer (manure) Controlled Traffic Farming • Advanced routeplanning • ISOBUS integration in RTK-GPS guidance In het Programma Precisie Landbouw (PPL) investeren landbouwbedrijfsleven en ministerie van EL&I in hulpmiddelen voor innovatieve Controlled Traffic Farming, Bemesting en Gewasbescherming
