A large proportion of Asian population consume rice as a staple food however the farming practices in many countries are outdated and the yield is lower than can be achieved with digital solutions.Further the logistics environment and storage facilities are not upto the mark and there are still discrepancies in the supply chain due to opaque operations adding losses to the value chain.There is also a huge gap between the processed rice or a product made using it sold in the market and the price paid to the farmers which forces many to leave farming and look for other options.There is a lack of a legitimate identity of the farmers in many developing Asian countries which hinders the credit policy created for them under different initiatives.Saptarshi will discuss on the improvement in the Rice cultivation in Asia through blockchain with a focus on the ROI for investment in this sector.
