Characterizing strategic patterns of farms with knowledge-based temporal abstraction: the case of suckler sheep farms



Characterizing strategic patterns of farms with knowledge-based temporal abstraction: the case of suckler sheep farms



AI Applications 10(3): 41-55



Because farm management is a complex task, agricultural extension agents need a methodological framework to improve their diagnosis of problems. Understanding the functioning of a farm is a necessary step to a better diagnosis. A model was built to characterize grazing management on suckler sheep farms. This model is based on the knowledge of experts in agronomy, animal science, and pastoral farming systems.
