拜耳参与由BlockApps开发的农业可追溯性区块链

2020-11-20 15:22

 

区块链供应商BlockApps与拜耳作物科学(Bayer Crop Science)合作开发了TraceHarvest网络,这是一个食品追溯平台,可以从购买种子开始跟踪农作物。拜耳在过去两年中一直是美国和巴西网络的活跃用户。


这种基于以太坊的解决方案通过在播种前跟踪种子而区别于其他农业供应链区块链。这包括它们来自哪里以及在哪里购买的。


人工跟踪农业部门的数据成本高、效率低,使企业在供应链中面临更大的违规风险,特别是在涉及国际贸易的情况下。农民要遵守许多规定,例如杀虫剂对环境的影响、他们是否可以使用转基因种子和可持续的耕作方式。


TraceHarvest旨在优化农民和商业运作,通过追踪生产是否符合国际法规,使他们能够更快、安全地将产品推向市场。该网络面向所有供应链参与者,如制造商、分销商和技术供应商。


“在生产中使用TraceHarvest使我们能够提高运营效率,创造价值,并在整个食品供应和价值链中具有更大的可见度、透明度和遵从性,”拜耳作物科学公司(Bayer Crop Science)数字战略和增长主管迈克尔•帕雷莱斯(Michael Pareles)表示。


BlockApps声称该网络具有高度的可伸缩性,允许成员在同一个平台上添加业务流程、用例和技术集成。


BlockAppps展望未来,该平台可以用于碳补偿信用和食品安全召回。此外,它声称网络上的数据共享可以用来推动和奖励整个供应链的可持续实践。


同时拜耳与蚂蚁集团合作,在亚洲食品行业提供区块链解决方案。美国农业部正在探索使用区块链来追踪有机农业的法规遵从性。

 

Blockchain provider BlockApps collaborated with Bayer Crop Science to develop its TraceHarvest Network, a food traceability platform that tracks crops from purchasing the seed. Bayer has been an active user of the network for the past two years in the U.S. and Brazil. 

The Ethereum-based solution differentiates itself from other agricultural supply chain blockchains by tracking seeds prior to planting. That includes where they are from and where they were bought. 

Manual tracking of data in the agriculture sector is costly and inefficient, putting businesses at greater risk of compliance violations in the supply chain, especially with international trading involved. Farmers are subject to numerous compliance requirements such as the impact of pesticides on the environment, whether they can use genetically modified seeds and sustainable farming practices. 

TraceHarvest aims to optimize farmers and business operations by enabling them to bring products to markets faster and safely through tracing compliance in production with international regulations. The network is open to all supply chain participants such as manufacturers, distributors and technology providers.

“Using TraceHarvest in production has allowed us to drive operational efficiencies, create value and have greater visibility, transparency and compliance throughout the entire food supply and value chain,” said Michael Pareles, Digital Strategy and Growth Lead at Bayer Crop Science.

BlockApps claims the network is highly scalable and allows members to add business processes, use cases and tech integrations onto the same platform. 

Going forward, BlockAppps envisions the platform could be used for carbon offsetting crediting and food safety recalls. Furthermore, it claims that data sharing on the network can be used to drive and reward sustainable practices throughout the supply chain. 

Meanwhile, Bayer has a partnership with Ant Group for blockchain solutions in the Asian food industry. The U.S. Department of Agriculture is exploring the use of blockchain for tracing regulatory compliance for organic agriculture.
