The overall objective of the TAGs project is to strengthen the transfer of technical-scientific innovations from research and innovation centers to enterprises of agro-food sector in order to enhance their competitiveness through a set of services that will help them to increase productivity and improve efficiency in the use of resources.
Starting from the state of art of precision farming technologies and services at national and EU level, a set of solutions able to ensure a significant increase in farm productivity with more environment-friendly processes (e.g. reduction in water and chemical product use) will be developed. The effectiveness of the solutions will be evaluated through the implementation of two different demonstrators in due different companies in Puglia and West Greece Regions.
