M18 meeting

The M18 meeting was held in Vienna, and was hosted by SME partner RICHTER RASEN SRO. During this general meeting both technical as well as exploitation and dissemination issues were discussed. The next 2 milestones to be reached, as per DoW, are MS2 (Final data and statistical analysis on turf measurement) and MS5 (SodSat software). Both of these milestones will be reached by M19 (i.e. August 2015). Partners discussed the dissemination activities that are planned for the coming months. The poster has been uploaded on the project website, together with the second issue of the newsletter. The third issue will be issued by Ateknea by the end of August. Mr Agius presented the technical work finished so far, and demonstrated the features of the weather stations that where shipped to Mr Alexander Richter (RICHTER) and Mr Johnny Trandem (OST). Both Systems were assembled and fully tested for a week prior to shipping to Richter and Ost. On the other hand Dr Berjaga and Dr Pons from EDMA presented the work finished so far on the user interface and expert system. Finally Dr Lulli from Turfe will be carrying out a reflectance test on the farms of end user SMEs Plantec, Richter and Ost. Acquisition of satellite images will then be ordered upon confirmation of coordinates from end-user SMEs. This test will be repeated also in September. Dr Lulli also briefed the consortium about current and planned dissemination activities, specifically the publication of technical articles on trade magazines in the coming months.
