CommentaryIf there’s a sector, um, ripe for blockchain, it’s agriculture. Get this: By using the blockchain, Walmart was able to track the fresh produce it sells to its source of origin in two seconds, down from six days.

Using advanced analytics, Pavo helps farmers grow higher quality, higher yielding crops, and connects them directly, via blockchain, to customers, like Walmart. Pavo promises you’ll know more about the food on your table.
