In Peru, the Agraria.pe portal has reported that agricultural exports from that country in 2022 reached 628 million dollars, which represents 5.6% more than in 2021. They also consider that these figures will continue to increase in the coming years, and add that this partly due to the implementation of blockchain technology in the field.
Agriculture has long been one of the most important economic sectors in the country. Food production is a fundamental activity for the Peruvian economy, but also for guarantee the food security of the population and the conservation of natural resources. In this context, the adoption of innovative technologies has been key to improving the productivity and sustainability of agriculture. One of these technologies is the blockchain.
Blockchain is a technology that enables the creation of a secure and transparent data record. In agriculture, this can be especially useful to guarantee the traceability of food, which means that the origin, quality and production process of the products can be traced. This can not only help consumers make informed decisions about the food they buy, but also can help producers improve their production processes and increase their profitability.
In Peru, organic farming with blockchain traceability has become an increasingly popular practice. According to an article published on the same portal Agraria.pe, several Peruvian companies have begun to use blockchain technology to register and verify the production of organic food. These records include information about the type of crop, geographic location, type of soil used, and history of pesticides and fertilizers used.
In addition, blockchain technology allows producers to prove the authenticity of their products, which allows them to obtain better prices in the market.
This is largely due to the growing demand for organic food., which are sold at higher prices than conventional foods. In addition, blockchain traceability has allowed Peruvian producers to demonstrate the quality and authenticity of their products, which has allowed them to increase their participation in the international market.
The most recent project launched in Peru is related to grapes. Review the portal that in “Azpitia, a valley south of Lima, a group of innovative farmers of Pisco grapes have started their new 100% organic grape cultivation process that will become a new 100% organic pisco with blockchain traceability, this pisco commercially speaking would start a new product differentiated from the others, but at the same time it has other environmental benefits that will further enhance its value with an unexpected result, the responsible use of organic fertilizers and pesticides, which are those that come from natural sources, They have begun the recovery of the bee population in said area that was almost extinct. This process is documented, the use and conservation of nature makes the blockchain the total immutable registrar and notary of this process, a guardian of guarantees and the results that are transparent to the final client their real attribute as organic”.
For Peruvian farmers, it is important to value the blockchain traceability process and its ability to change old paradigms, production and commercial processes. The blockchain has not only allowed producers to prove the authenticity of their products, but also it has also improved transparency and trust in the food supply chain.
