Colombia to use blockchain for agriculture improvement

Colombia wants to use blockchain to improve Colombia to use blockchain for agriculture improvement. The three workshops will be launched for agriculture: Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, and the Internet Of Things. The objective of the project is to increase the productivity and sustainability of the agricultural sector.

Colombia will launch blockchain network courses for the agricultural sector to increase understanding of this technology and add opportunities to improve productivity. Farmers, producers, and any member of the agro community can register for the workshop.

Under the name ” Agro 4.0 “, the project seeks the agricultural industry to integrate emerging technologies to strengthen sustainability. It was created by the Ministry of Information and Communication Technologies (MinTIC) in conjunction with the Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (C4IR).

In the world, these tools are generating great changes in all sectors. Now we seek that the Colombian countryside appropriates them and benefits from their implementation.

Iván Durán, Vice Minister of Digital Transformation.

The initiative maintains that, by implementing a blockchain system, the agricultural sector will have more efficiencies and precisely points out that it will be able to record data in an automated way that will help “to make the right decisions to reduce costs and time.” Although, at the moment, it is unknown if the plan is to integrate this technology for the supply chain or for the production itself.

The Agro 4.0 project is of utmost importance for the Colombian economy

Erez Zaionce, the director of C4IR, mentioned that the agricultural sector and 4.0 technologies have a relevant weight for the country’s economy. Their union is vital to get the most out of both. Therefore, they will not only offer blockchain workshops. They will also train in two more areas: artificial intelligence and the internet of things.

The implementation of this type of digitization in the agricultural sector will allow the development of automated processes without human participation. In this way, the initiative promises that the industry will be able to produce more efficiently, which will be recorded in the second phase of this project when the results of the workshops are validated.

After going through the first teaching stage, the authorities will work with ten national farmers to put what they have learned into practice. The objective is to validate the benefits of the technologies in the industry and identify particular gaps in the process.

Zaionce confesses that facilitating the appropriation and dissemination of 4.0 technologies, such as blockchain, represents a challenge. It will be necessary to “promote learning processes, knowledge management, staging of innovations and good management practices.”

Colombia is not the only country that tries to integrate technology into agriculture to improve its economy. Recently, in the United States, a provider of agricultural funds applied to the Securities and Exchange Commission to launch a bitcoin ETF.
