“To fully reap the benefits of digital agriculture, the exchange of data between the different partners in the agri-food chain must be done in a fair, transparent, and reliable way. Farmers and businesses still need more “trust” to fully share their data and thereby create collective and individual benefits.

It is essential to incorporate and experiment with trust and transparency mechanisms, and also to proactively address some barriers and fears of farmers and farm management systems regarding the use of data. To address these barriers, and provide farmers with a platform where information is easily managed transparently and fairly, we propose to experiment with two technologies – IdVerification and Smart Contracts within DjustConnect, and through two experiments: 1. authentication and 2. data transactions. Using AI technology and biometric recognition (IdPlizz platform) in DjustConnect, the platform will have an unforgeable login method. By implementing and experimenting with this feature, we ensure that farmers know who is using their information. By implementing smart contracts on DjustConnect, we create an electronic auction system and automate data exchanges.”
