Agriculture has had codes and been coded from its origins. It exists because of its coding. Before MacArthur developed the dairy industry in Australia, photosynthesis, the real basis of the industry was already coded. Elizabeth did not now about it, or brother William, the first Australian scientist.
The DNA code determines both plants and animals. It is the capacity in one small object to encapsulate all the knowledge necessary to regenerate all the elements necessary to reconstitute the living being. Remarkable. DNA could be used to store all the ordinary agricultural information needed. Currently it can store 215 petabytes of data on a single gram of DNA!!!
RevolutionAg aims to capture all the knowledge necessary to describe an agricultural product on a code. Just an ordinary printed code. But this is not just to let farmers know how to reproduce the product. It is to allow consumers to intelligently see the know how behind the product, the face belonging to hands that crafted the product and especially to prove authenticity, the social license of the farmer to farm to societies standards.
Did you know this is already being done for fresh produce into the stores in Shanghai? Ask them about it.
