AGRICULTURE

& CROP PROTECTION

THE PROBLEM

The rapid growth in population and the consequent increase of the food demand made the agricultural market reach the size of 250.5 billion in 2020. It is estimated that between 10% and 25% of products for agriculture on the market are counterfeited.

THE RISKS

Illegally produced products for agriculture:

Are not tested, endangering human health

Can damage crops, soils and wildlife

Might negatively influence the effectiveness of treatments

Result in lower tax collection, job losses and lower investments in R&D

Threaten agrochemical industries’ name and reputation

THE SOLUTION

We created a platform to tag, track, and instantaneously authenticate agrochemical products

OUR PRODUCT TAG
Our patent pending NFC tag solution leverages encrypted tamper proof blockchain technology to track a product from producer to end user and features refilling protection and anti peeling
A TAP OF A SMARTPHONE INSTANTANEOUS CONNECTION
Our app or a direct NFC connection grants farmers instant access to product characteristics, integrity and proof of authenticity. Faster and safer than any solution based on QR code or image recognition
