On November 28 and 29, the 23rd MARS Conference took place in Gormanston, Ireland (https://ec.europa.eu/jrc/en/event/conference/23rd-mars-conference). During those two intense days, the future of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) was discussed by European public authorities, industry representatives, the European Commission (EC) and the Joint Research Center (JRC).
The focus was on the new monitoring approach for CAP controls, which will revolutionize the way agricultural subsidy controls are done in the EU. We were honored to be able to present our experiences with a pilot project on monitoring, which was realised together with the Bavarian State Ministry for Agriculture and Forestry. In our presentation, we demonstrated how artificial intelligence can be used to automatically extract information on crop diversification on field-level from optical Sentinel 2 satellite images and consequently reduce the need for on-the-spot checks.
We are already working on more monitoring projects. Get in touch for further information and to see how we can work together!
