Benefits of Agriculture Blockchain Development & Integration
Transparency and Trust
Most companies are habitual to trusting authorization or accessing services via intermediaries. The integration of blockchain transforms these habits: P2P infrastructure, public and private cryptographic keys, compulsory identity verification, and transaction security, guaranteeing faith between network associates.
Consumers believe more in farmers and distributors when they are available with full-proof details of their food origin, quality, and complete supply chain details from farm to the supermarket. They can receive all this information through blockchain-based applications.
No to Intermediaries
The transactions and trade in a blockchain network directly occur between two nodes, eliminating the need for intermediates. The eliminated role of banks, financial institutions, attorneys, and many 3rd-party websites can save a lot of time and money.
A vast range of food delivery options and varieties can be accessed while dealing directly with the farmers, which ultimately helps the end-users. Sometimes, the intermediates commit false to the farmers and distributors, eventually affecting the end-users and the retailers' reputation. Blockchain brings a full-stop to all such issues and supports proper and quality-rich deliverables to the end-users.
Records are Permanent
The records stored in a decentralized ledger are permanent, i.e., once recoded, impossible to erase or modify. The blockchain records are tamper-proof, allowing even strangers to trade with trust without any risks of privacy hacks and transaction failures. Once any data is processed to the blockchain ledger, it is verified by all the network members, and then following the consensus mechanism, they are added to the ledger.
Once the data is recorded over the decentralized ledger, they are permanent; it implies that no one plays with the records; they are completely immutable and impossible to theft.
Detecting Fraud and Malfunction
Adopting blockchain ensures an entirely secure IT infrastructure removes the possible loopholes preventing unauthorized personals from entering your secured network. Administrators can track the entire food supply chain across its various phases, and if any fraud or malfunction is tempted for any reason, it can be detected instantly. It ensures the products are shipped securely from one end to the other.
Improving Food Safety & Quality
The agro-food system is extensive and widely distributed, which is full of scams and unauthorized interferences. The food supply chain needs to be managed with advanced technology solutions ensuring good food quality, proper quantity, and a hygienic supply chain. The blockchain-enabled agri-food system is organized in a more secure and standardized way to support farmers, distributors, and retailers along with the assurance to deliver superior quality products.
Using the decentralized food supply chain, emerging issues can be detected on a real-time basis. In case any food is found unfit to consume, its source, distributors, and associated details can be identified immediately in the decentralized network and controlled directly to stop any foodborne disease outbreak.
