Technology has been applied in agriculture as a tool to reduce labour effects and improve labour efficiency. However, they also provide valuable information that provides both the farmer and other users with a better understanding of other assets provided by a farm. In this document, the different technologies applied in the agricultural sector are analysed, differentiating them between compliance technologies and monitoring of agri-environmental public goods (AECPGs) based on scientific publications, reports from relevant entities, meetings with key stakeholders and actions carried out in the CONSOLE project and in other Research and Innovation projects.
For this, the CONSOLE project partners have provided relevant information on the actions carried out in their case studies as well as national and / or local developments. Subsequently, the information received has been classified and categorized according to the type of technology used.
This document reflects the variety of technologies available in the sector that allows and favors the development of new contractual relationships that increase or promote AECPGs following the objectives set by the new CAP Farm to Fork, Green Deal and the objectives of sustainable development of FAO.
However, to favor the implementation of the technology and therefore the development of new contractual relationships, an incentive from the responsible parties can be crucial to achieve the objectives set for Horizon 2030.
For that, this document reflects the perception from key actors to analyze current technologies and their feasibility to be implemented under different contractual relationships and AECPGs promoted.
