About us

Who we are

Main objectives of UFMD funding activities to improve the following three targets:

Practical orientation
Improve the lack of practical orientation in study programs to support the employability of graduates by 
a better understanding of farm management.

Student-centered
Collection of farm data as part of the study process with lecturers providing insight into the production process and assessment of the results.
Teachers accompany students for the data collection on farms and for establishing sound gross margins.

Farm data
The establishment and use of reliable, comparable farm data leads to a proper understanding of farm business and production issues.
This digital agriculture will take us from agriculture, relying on experience and intuition to sustainable agriculture optimized with data.

We collect data “on the field” using the special Regio-Max tool developed by HSWT.

How can we cooperate

With the partner model

The purpose of the UFMD partner network is to support the shared principles based on UFMD's Statement of Purpose:

1. Farm data to be available, accessible, usable and unrestricted

2. Partners aim to build high-level policy and HEI and private sector support for open data

3. Encourage collaboration and cooperation across existing agriculture and open data activities and stakeholders to solve long-standing regional and national problems.

Information for farmers:
- Develop an open data policy for your farm
- Use available modified published farm data
- Host students for placements/practical seminars

Information for partners:
- Join a working group
- Organize a UFMD seminar in your region/institution
- Share the information about UFMD between students of your HEI

Data protection – your data belong to you.
