GREEN NEWS: Farmbox Project Event selected for EU Green Week 2023


Our event of Farmbox Project has been selected as part of the official agenda of EU Green Week 2023 (3-11 June) !

The farming sector is facing new challenges due to climate change, and the FarmBox project is working to address this issue by improving Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) skills for students and farmers. As part of its Sustainability Plan, and in the framework of the EU Green Week 2023 (3-11 June 2023), FarmBox project will host an online event. 

The event “Innovative technologies to accompany skills for the green transition: FarmBox project,” will be hosted by Uptoearth’s Metaverse. It will provide an opportunity to discuss the relevance of CSA skills for the green transition and how the project’s results, including a MOOC and an Online Simulator, can contribute to training farmers and students.

Furthermore, participants will have the opportunity to discuss the role of disruptive technologies in this context and explore the company’s Metaverse.

The event is part of the annual opportunity to raise awareness, promote, and discuss European environmental policy during the EU Green Week, which will be focused on skills for sustainable, resilient, and socially fair communities in celebration of the European Year of Skills.

Stay tuned for the detailed agenda and instructions on how to connect!

The new C.O.R.E. project has kicked-off!

“Carbon Organic Resilient Ethereal – CORE” is an ESA kick-Start funded project and it has officially started on October the 7th, 2022. 

During the Kick-off meeting, the ESA and UptoEarth representatives, had the chance to discuss about the main structure of the Kick-Start program, with its goals, the required documentation and set deadlines. Moreover, different typologies of projects funded by ESA were introduced, to start planning future steps for the project sustainability, after its lifetime. 

C.O.R.E. main purpose is to create a SCENARIO (Soil Carbon protEctioN And RestoratIOn) Index mapping the global soil carbon potential and able to simulate future scenarios describing the real value of agricultural land.

Based on the algorithms developed in recent years and on the FARMBOX Simulator, an innovative and accurate methodology using satellite data to define the true four-year carbon value of agricultural land, will be developed and applied.

Basically, the entire C.O.R.E. project will map a range of information in agricultural production on local and global trends. In contrast to traditional monitoring maps, C.O.R.E. mapping methodology for carbon projects in agricultural areas considers three key data:  

  • the “HIDDEN” Soil Organic Carbon represents the past of the soil;   
  • the Organic Carbon represents the present, which is defined as occurring between 5 years before and 5 years after the project’s beginning;   
  • the Resilient Carbon represents the carbon simulated in the future, from 5 years after the beginning of the project.  

The SCENARIO index clarifies, identifies and evaluates the property and value of soil carbon in agricultural land through a scale of values ranging from 0 to 100, where soils with intermediate values have good carbon base and strong growth potential, and represent therefore a good opportunity for the carbon market. The index will be used by companies working in food processing, crop protection, seed production and agricultural equipment, as well as carbon platforms, trading companies, financial institutions and researchers.

Through the continuous improvement of our proprietary machine learning algorithms since 2018, we create cutting-edge datasets that help companies make more accurate data-driven decisions.

By providing customers with a single figure to estimate the amount of total soil organic carbon that has been lost, it allows both a possible present estimate of carbon and a potential carbon gain for the future. This method offers a timeline-based perspective of the soil while analysing the present, past, and future.

Climate Smart Agricultural Simulator

The Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) Simulator is one of the Erasmus+ FARMBOX (“The farmer’s toolbox for climate change mitigation”) project’ main result and soon it will be launched by the Consortium.

UptoEarth is the leading Partner responsible for designing this training and learning tool in a flexible and user-friendly way that will improve trainers and learners’ confidence with agritech, as well as will provide learners and farmers with a forecasting and management tool to experience project-based learning.

The online Simulator is a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) embedded in a web portal and applying a workflow based on algorithms.  It offers simulation-based education through alternative scenarios on farmland managing, by describing current management practices and alternative future management scenarios

The CSA Simulator provides simplified and immediate use of “forecast” indications related to the progress of the Soil Organic Carbon (SOC) and Soil Inorganic Carbon (SIC) according to the agricultural practices adopted and attributable to the Climate Smart Agriculture approach.
