WHY BLOCKCHAIN FOR AGRICULTURE?

Digital agriculture promises to optimize yields for farmers, but what happens after the crops leave the farm?
Running the supply chain on a blockchain offers the following opportunities in agri-business:
 

  • Increase transparency in product traceability to reduce waste and ensure consumers get food at peak freshness
  • Improve data accuracy, security and consistency across the supply chain with blockchain’s distributed ledger technology
  • Enable data immutability to increase trust for all parties involved
