Development of Short-term Evapotranspiration Forecasting Model using Time Series Method to Support The Precision Agriculture Management in Tropics

Open field tropical horticulture production is highly affected by the uncontrollable environment. Consequently, farmer manages their farming activity so as to adapt the environment, such as an appropriate planting schedule, plant maintenance, and daily irrigation. Nowadays, climate change intensifies unpredictable weather and unstable climate distribution. The precision farming approach was introduced by the utilization of … Read more

Example of Latex page

[latexpage] At first, we sample $f(x)$ in the $N$ ($N$ is odd) equidistant points around $x^*$: \[ f_k = f(x_k),\: x_k = x^*+kh,\: k=-\frac{N-1}{2},\dots,\frac{N-1}{2} \] where $h$ is some step. Then we interpolate points $\{(x_k,f_k)\}$ by polynomial \begin{equation} \label{eq:poly} P_{N-1}(x)=\sum_{j=0}^{N-1}{a_jx^j} \end{equation} Its coefficients $\{a_j\}$ are found as a solution of system of linear equations: \begin{equation} \label{eq:sys} \left\{ … Read more

Research on Agricultural Informatics – Utilization of ICT to Improve The Agricultural Production System in Tropical Country

Environmental conditions is important factor affects the agricultural production system. In four seasons country like Japan, weather condition during cultivation can be fully controlled by utilization of greenhouse and environmental management. Microclimate manipulator can be managed automatically based on environmental evaluation. However, in tropical country like Indonesia, utilization of automatic control on greenhouse for agricultural … Read more

seminar note:Agriculture and Integrated Production (IP) in Europe: The Almeria Case

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]inter 2012. Today i had opportunity to join special seminar in IT-Agriculture, held by Laboratory of Farm Management, my neighbor laboratory. The keynote speaker is Prof. Fernando Bievenido frrom Departement of Computer Language and Science, University of Almeria, Spain. He will explain his research entitled “Agriculture and Integrated Production(IP) in Europe: The Almeria’s Case”. In this note, I just try retell what I catch from his interesting topics.

Cooperation between all the agent was really the key point of implementation Integrated Production(IP)
