Pergamino Data Science at Service of Coffee Farmers
PERGAMINO is a groundbreaking project developed by Digital Acceleration Partners in collaboration with the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) and the PROCAGICA Program. The project aims to provide practical tools and resources for Central American coffee institutions to help them combat the effects of climate change and coffee rust disease.
The platform uses advanced data science models, including climate data forecast modeling and machine learning for coffee rust, to provide institutions with actionable insights and information. By collecting and analyzing data from a range of sources, PERGAMINO can help institutions make more informed decisions about their farming practices and adapt to changing weather patterns and other environmental factors.
Some of the key tools and resources available on the PERGAMINO platform include:
- Climate data forecast modeling: The platform uses sophisticated models to forecast weather patterns and other environmental factors that can affect coffee production. Institutions can use this information to make decisions about planting, harvesting, and other farming practices.
- Machine learning for coffee rust: Coffee rust is a serious disease that can have devastating effects on coffee crops. The platform uses machine learning algorithms to detect and predict outbreaks of coffee rust, allowing institutions to take preventative measures before the disease spreads.
- Practical tools and resources: In addition to data science models, the PERGAMINO platform also provides a range of practical tools and resources to help institutions manage their coffee farms more effectively. These include soil and water management tools, pest and disease management resources, and training materials for farmers and other stakeholders.
Overall, the PERGAMINO platform represents a major step forward in the fight against climate change and coffee rust disease. By providing institutions with advanced data science tools and practical resources, it can help to safeguard the future of the Central American coffee industry and ensure that farmers can continue to thrive in a changing world.
