Blockchains in agriculture survey


March 3, 2019
By OSCIA

The University of Guelph is conducting a survey to gather information on how and why farmers may use blockchains on the farm. Your participation is very valuable to the university and is greatly appreciated.

Blockchains are digital ledgers that can be used to record information about how, when and where food was grown and processed.

Blockchains enable the digitization, automation and tracking of food production, all of which influence farmers’ profit margins. The adoption of blockchains could benefit farmers as the demands for better traceability and greater supply chain transparency by importers, retailers and consumers push for the implementation of blockchains in agriculture.
