The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.
This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services.

One of the industries of national economy that provides consumers with agricultural commodities for food is agriculture. A significant role in producing crops on farms is played by chosen soil tillage technologies. Practitioners use three kinds of technologies: ploughing, low-till as well as no-till (direct drilling). Choosing the most appropriate technology, farms can optimise their expenses on fuel and equipment, as well as consequently gain higher yields. The present research was conducted on one of largest crop farms in Latvia. The research aim is determine the economic gains from using various soil cultivation technologies at "Jozi" Ltd. The paper presents research findings on the technologies used on the farm as well as describes the key indicators of economic gains, determining the gains after a group of technologies was changed. Qualitative and quantitative methods were used in the present research. Data were obtained from the farm's accounting system. Presently, the farm uses all the three technologies for field works in its sown area in equal proportions, and the choice of technologies is mainly determined by weather conditions, as well as the crop in crop rotation. The expenses on equipment and tractors are very different if the farm changes its crop rotation and applies another combination of technologies. The results show that changes in the soil after the rotation of crops will be mainly taken into account in direct sowing and in low-till technology; the cost difference is significant. Comparing the new tillage technology group with the currently used one, the largest cost for the farm is generated by ploughing technology; thereby ploughing technology is no longer viable. Compared with the cost of the new technology, which makes up EUR 214854, the cost gap is EUR 230 045.
