Blockchain in Precision Ag: Blockchain’s effect on Risks Facing Precision Ag Product and Service Providers
Data authenticity and security is a top of mind issue for all precision Ag companies that handle customer data and financial information. This program provides a basic introduction to Blockchain—what it is, how it works, what it does, and why it seems destined to become the gold standard of data authentication and security in many industries. The speakers will also describe how the use of Blockchain may reduce risk in applications of data security, collection, ownership, and privacy considerations, as well as applications of Blockchain for crop, livestock and product certification purposes, and reducing disputes in contractual situations.
