The H2020-MSCA-IF project MCAPEFA is conducting at Remote Sensing Laboratory of the University of Trento. The main goal of EU-funded MCAPEFA project is improving the adoption of precision agriculture in small farms. Small farms share 67% of all farms in the EU, and small farmers need to adopt digital technology to get efficient and resource-friendly sustainable farming. However, the current uptake of this technology is relatively low, mainly due to the high initial cost of the necessary equipment. This research will overcome the financial barrier with the development of a new affordable multispectral camera and accompanying software and services. This infrastructure will for improve adoption of precision farming, which is crucial for maximizing production and quality, the efficiency of nitrogen use and minimizing environmental pollution, especially due to nitrate contamination of drinking water and aquatic ecosystems.

Marko Barjaktarovic, PhD
Marko Barjaktarovic is Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions Postdoctoral Fellow at the Remote Sensing in the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science, University of Trento, with research in the acquisition and analysis of multispectral images. He received his Ph.D. degrees from School of Electrical Engineering, University of Belgrade in 2012, where he is an associate professor. In the field of electrical engineering, he has published 1 book and 36 scientific publications. His teaching and researching areas include sensors technology for measuring non-electrical quantities, real-time image processing especially for machine vision systems, medical image processing, neural networks for MRI image classification. He was included in developing procedures for: diagnosis of damage in the Hand-arm vibration disease; fusion visible image and scintigram for precise topographic localization of tumor.
