Project 101074540 – LIFE21-ENV-EN-ES-Life-AIs

The Life-AIs consortium has received support from the European Union’s prestigious LIFE environmental programme ( This consortium brings together two leading technology providers, Fede -project leader- and Agerpix, together with three major producers: Castillo de Canena, Dominio Fournier and Ágroptimum.

In the Life-AIs project, Fede joins forces with Agerpix, a provider of digital agronomic services specialised in data processing and predictive models, to “see” crops by capturing images with 3D cameras and processing them with AI. The accuracy of the data generated from the valuable visual information makes it possible to monitor the state of the plantations and execute high-precision field treatments and tasks.

Life-AIs: See & Save provides information on plantation vigour, harvest forecasts and disease detection. All this valuable information facilitates high-precision plantation management based on visual information with excellent detail and temporal resolution that will translate into significant environmental and economic benefits for agricultural businesses.

Alignment of Life-AIs with environmental policies

It is estimated that, during the 54 months of the project, Life-AIs will achieve a reduction of 604 tonnes of greenhouse gases. This figure will multiply to a reduction of 3,225 tonnes per year when the technology is implemented on approximately 97,437 hectares. These reductions translate into savings of up to 43% in plant protection products, up to 20% in fertilisers, up to 31% in fuel and up to 13% in electricity annually. These environmental achievements demonstrate that Life-AIs are fully in line with the objectives of the EU Green Pact‘s Farm to Fork strategy.

Life-AIs field trials and tests

The Life-AIs consortium will demonstrate the emission reductions and savings of this innovation in vineyard, olive and pistachio plantations in Spain. To this end, trials will be conducted on 150 hectares of crops belonging to the plantations of Dominio Fournier (vineyard of the D.O. Ribera del Duero, Spain), Castillo de Canena (olive grove, Spain) and Agróptimum (pistachio, Spain).

The Life-AIs trials, which will be carried out thanks to the support of the LIFE programme, will demonstrate how this digital agronomic solution significantly reduces the environmental impact of agriculture in the high-value crop sector, ensuring quality fruit production, increasing farmers’ profitability and helping to improve agri-food security for society.
