Project Title

OpenOrganicFarm - public online tool for vegetable growing

Project description

People who are interested in starting vegetable farming often do not have sufficient agronomic knowledge or tools to further professionalize their work. As a result, most of them do not start their own market garden or community-supported agriculture or already existing businesses are given up. The aim of the project is to develop a publicly accessible online tool that will make it easier for gardeners and those interested in starting vegetable farming. The model is the concept of market gardening. At the beginning, an agronomic knowledge database with data on bio-intensive vegetable cultivation will be created. This is supplemented by a video series with explanations on vegetable cultivation. In the second step, a decision support tool is to be developed with the help of artificial intelligence (knowledge-based methods, knowledge graph), which links the data with each other. Economic conclusions with recommendations and planning steps for an individual, small-scale bio-intensive vegetable farm will then be delivered.
