Bio DAC has tested, validated and adopted Ibisa‘s blockchain-based solution in the scope of BlockStart:

Potato yield forecasting with usage of Minorka and satellite-derived imagery.

Why has the company decided to implement the solution: Minorka is the solution which makes it very easy to operate with multiple clients that need to request the data on a regular basis. On the other side, it’s blockchain component guarantees its traceability and limit the sources of errors. From perspective of BioDAC and its clients the global reach of the Minorka solution provides an important advantage with a good potential for profitable growth.

Added value of the solution to the company: The Minorka solution will automate the way the requests are performed and responses are received – which will be a crucial aspect while cooperating with multiple clients.

What has been done during BlockStart’s pilot stage: Minorka has been used to create initial analysis for potato yield forecasting by analysis of current and historical vegetation condition in such places. It shows that it is a good tool to create such a requests for various months and spots and it can be used effectively for yield forecasting in farming.
