A research platform on future organic arable cropping (OAC) systems has been designed. The platform is based on an extended use of information and communication technologies (ICT) and adaptable cognitive automation. The overall mission of the platform is to enhance OAC systems in terms of documentation quality, process activities, and labour environment and increase the overall systems efficiency while at the same time maintain its environmental benefits such as biodiversity and reduced fossil energy consumption.
