I would like to introduce the number of books and articles, which are collecting information, which could be also useful for the African community. This book is not very new, but it has till now large number of readers. I hope again to find the time and prepare an update of this book, I hope also with the number of African contributors.
What is the aim of this book? Why we have decided to put together contribution from different authors? We don’t want only to describe the status of current development and research in ICT for Agriculture, Food and Environment. We would like to analyse the period of last 10 years in terms of the results achieved in the research area, implementation in practice and success of the implementation. The book analyses the technological progress during this period and the progress in the application area. What are the current challenges having an influence on ICT for agriculture and the environment? What is the current status of research and what are the future trends? The book is based on two pillars: • Results of current research in the Czech Centre for Science and Society, WirelessInfo and • our members; • Articles of invited authors from around the world. The book was accomplished thanks to the support of the AgriXchange, COIN IP, VlitNod, LernSens and Habitats projects with the use of results of previous projects including Rural Wins, A Bard, Aforo, Ami@NEtFood. Other projects supporting single articles are mentioned in these articles. The book is divided into five chapters: • Where we are – overview of previous activities and description of the state of the art • Challenges for future ICT for agriculture • Where we go • Vision of the future • Conclusion The book and materials should help to build and publicly discuss the Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) of agriXchange. The draft of agriXchange SRA is part of this book.
