Biocircular tackles major issues in inefficient and unsustainable farming practices leading to inappropriate application of resources such as artificial fertilisers, non-optimised value chains in the production system, and insufficient data handling and processing. This is accomplished through the incorporation of smart farming and smart processing processes into an integrated system for the optimal management of a middle-sized farm and the minimization of its carbon footprint. To date, the gaps have not been addressed as farmers lack low cost and effective technologies and methods available to them to manage the complexities of whole farm resources and more specifically to transform data into knowledge suitable for decision making; to monitor and interpret important indicators such as soil readiness, nutrient efficiency, product quality and animal welfare which are all interrelated and requires multidisciplinary expertise. Biocircular addresses these gaps by bringing together novel ICT and cross-border multidisciplinary expertise in precision farming and develops economically viable advanced smart technologies and software integrating multiple levels of farm decision making.
