Agronomists, salespeople and even young farmers today are skilled and accustomed to computer and hand-held technologies for entertainment, communication and learning. SPAN is a serious games platform that will use a virtual world environment to simulate a farm and train all professionals across the value chain on the economic and environmental benefits of precision agriculture (PA). Lack of knowledge on the benefits of PA is among the key barriers for the adoption of advanced ICT technologies for site-specific management in European farming. The training on basic technological, agronomic and economic underlying principles behind PA technologies can increase participant interest and make the training process more enjoyable, memorable and effective.
