The final ERMES Open Day was held in Mortara on 14/12/2016, and was dedicated to illustrating the main ERMES concepts, results and achievements concerning the Local Rice Service to current and potential end-users and general public.
The meeting was attended by more than 40 people, including farmers and representatives of companies involved in agronomic support to farms as well as in Remote Sensing for agricultural applications. During the meeting, ERMES personnel illustrated the main results of the project, focusing on ERMES local products and their use in 2015 and 2016 to support agro practices.
In addition, two Italian and one Greek ERMES end-users presented the work conducted in their farms to support fertilization exploiting the ERMES Seaonal and Constant Pattern maps. These presentations were very interesting for the public, since they allowed to appreciate how the product and services developed within ERMES were used in 2015 and 2016 in real-life situations.
The meeting was successfull, and elicited interesting questions concerning the possible continuation of ERMES activities and the economical benefit of the use of ERMES tools andservices.
