EcoProMIS 2.0: Ecological Productivity Management Information System (EcoProMIS) for oil palm and rice in Colombia
IATI Identifier: GB-GOV-13-GCRF-GCRF-INTPART-UKSA-GCRF-INTPART-CALL-2-UKSA_C2_07AB
EcoProMIS or Ecological Production Management Information System is an ambitious project to improve the sustainability of rice production systems in Colombia. It will create “Knowledge for Free and Decisions for a Fee” to increase productivity and profitability of crop production while limiting environmental impact and optimising the socio-economic conditions of stakeholders. Colombian farmers, including smallholders, are looking to improve productivity and stabilise incomes. This is essential to allow them to compete globally and improve their livelihoods, whilst responding to climate change and reducing environmental impact. The project also engages farmers through outreach programmes and training to develop their understanding and skills on how crop management affects productivity, income and sustainable ecosystems. EcoProMIS is creating a platform that processes big data sets collected per field, grower and location in deep knowledge of related economic, social, technical and environmental processes with the help of machine learning, crop modelling and A.I.Objectives
EcoProMIS is focussed Colombian rice and oil palm farmers and their need to improve productivity and stabilise incomes to allow them to compete globally whilst responding to climate change and producing responsibly. The project uses satellite earth observation combined with environmental and crop data to research the impact of crop and ecosystem management on biodiversity, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, social-economic indicators and productivity. The project will include farmers and smallholders collecting data and engaging in outreach programmes, so that their skills and understanding how crop management affects productivity, income and sustainable ecosystems is developed.
