Nebraska Senator Carol Blood supported a bill to explore the potential of using blockchain in agriculture.
According to the document, the distributed registry technology is planned to be used to track the origin of products: from farms to store shelves.
The author of the bill proposes to control the production conditions using the blockchain: the quality of the soil, equipment, weather and other factors. They also want to use the technology for certification of organic food products.
As part of the study, officials will consider the blockchain as an opportunity for the exchange of assets, storage of products and equipment.
Nebraska is a predominantly agricultural state, with farms and ranches covering more than 90% of the entire territory in 2019, according to government data.
Recall that in May, the managing platform for charitable organizations, HumanVenture, integrated the Free TON blockchain for issuing food cards.
Earlier, Ukraine proposed to introduce blockchain in the procedure for issuing and verifying digital certificates of immunity to COVID-19.
