Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The workshop reported in this book was held in order to review the state-of-the-art of agricultural telematics in the Member States of the European Community and to review the areas of development most critical to its adoption by the farming community. The objective was to provide the basis for recommendations for coordinated actions to assist the development of agricultural telematics in the European Community. A widespread lack of uptake by the agricultural industry is reported, except in France where videotex is widely used as a result of the Mimitel programme. More opportunities for user training and a more sharply focussed marketing effort are required to overcome this problem. There is a need for development, preferably in consultation with users, to provide more powerful systems and better quality software. The development and use of expert systems in this area is seen to have great potential.
