Farm-to-Fork Supply Chain Tracking using Blockchain (Faculty Lead: Ambareen Siraj, Student: Kendall Land)
Current systems for tracking agricultural products from their origination to consumption rely on separate actors and enterprise architectures. This makes any kind of tracing of concerns back to their sources very cumbersome and challenging. It also raises concerns for potential security risks such as data integrity and accountability. This is why our research is proposing a way to implement blockchain to reliably process agricultural data in a decentralized manner and use IoT devices for automated data capture and tracking. Our blockchain based approach offers a manageable semi-automated solution to track and trace agricultural products to ensure integrity and accountability of stakeholders.
