Data Intensive Farm Management Project

Where Science & Agriculture Collaborate in Order to Innovate


This research was supported by a USDA-NIFA-AFRI Food Security Program Coordinated Agricultural Project, titled “Using Precision Technology in On-farm Field Trials to Enable Data-Intensive Fertilizer Management,” (Accession Number 2016-68004-24769), and also by the a USDA-NRCS Conservation Innovation Grant from the On-farm Trials Program, titled “Improving the Economic and Ecological Sustainability of US Crop Production through On-Farm Precision Experimentation” (Award Number NR213A7500013G021).

This work was supported in part by Oracle Cloud credits and related resources provided by the Oracle for Research program.

Integration with Oracle IDCS Complete!

The DIFM Ag Research Portal and Farmers Portal is now integrated with Oracle IDCS and there is self-registration for farmers and research scientists.   Both applications remain under development but the underlying scaffolding is built and being tested.

Ag Research Portal:  Is an end-user application under development designed for PI's and Stakeholders to access, review, edit migrated data residing in DIFM's Autonomous Data Warehouse in the Oracle Cloud.  

Farm Portal: Is an end-user application allowing farmers to register for OFPE Trials, upload necessary data for implementing those trials.  

Integrating user registration with IDCS and managing application & data access with IDCS satisfies essential requirements of Phase I of the software development plan.
