With digitization and traceability in the seed industry, there will be full-proof evidence of the quality, which will, in turn, lead to higher prices, meaning better earnings for the farmers. PJTSAU (Professor Jayashankar Telangana State Agricultural University), in collaboration with TRST01 (Trust O One), has introduced blockchain technology in the field of agriculture (Seed traceability on Pigeonpea & Safflower) for the benefit of the farming community. This will enable farmers to get authenticated information regarding the products (Seed & Dal) they purchase from the seed-producing agencies, not to be eluded by spurious seeds available in the market.TRST01 Blockchain platform performs a complete source trace of the product from Nucleus seed to Certified seed. All the data will be recorded and stored in the blockchain. TRST01 platform generates a unique hash and integrated QR codes for the seed.
