NIVA published a new Policy Brief: FMIS data for CAP. In this 4th NIVA Policy Brief it is stated that the potential and interoperability of farm data has been an important topic during the project. The work done and experiences of NIVA were used to create this Policy Brief:

  • To monitor performance we need more data about farming practices, in particular data about operations performed at parcels, fertilizers & plant protection products use.
  • Farm Management Information Systems and precision farming data as possible data sources are not optimally used at the moment.
  • This data is generated  by farmers and a successful data partnership between policy makers and farming community needs to be established.
  • Given the diversity of FMIS operators data exchange standards, crop lists etc. must be agreed on to boost the wider use of data sharing.

Comments, remarks and questions regarding the Policy Brief are welcome:
