DIONE: an integrated EO-based toolbox for modernising CAP area-based compliance checks and assessing respective environmental impact

The EU-funded DIONE project (HORIZON 2014-2020) offers a unique fusion of innovative technologies that improve the workflow of agricultural monitoring. DIONE project is developing a direct payment controlling toolbox for paying agencies to abide by the modernized CAP (Common Agricultural Policy) regulations, involving novel techniques that will improve the capabilities of satellite technology while integrating various data sources (drones, soil sensors, and mobile applications). At the same time, a system developed on a regional or national scale will evaluate the monitored parameters to form evidence-based conclusions regarding eventual environmental impacts on an entire region.
