Keeping Ag Real – Part 2: What do Harry Connick Jr., Klout Scores & Kelly Clarkson have in common? @NatashaNicholes


This is part 2 of a great conversation with lifestyle blogger, Natasha Nicholes. We dive in talking about how she has grown an old, dirty lot on the south side of Chicago into a beautiful learning tool. She discusses Harry Connick Jr.’s involvement and her goals for the future. We take a shot at explaining Klout Scores and finish up with her interview with Kelly Clarkson, just another mom with four kids.

Believe it or not, there is still more from our interview! We’ll be talking about an upcoming event Natasha’s daughter will be spearheading. Watch for its release before the end of January.

As always, thanks for joining Keeping Ag Real!

Ontario AgCast – Jes Oelschlagal


For all our talk about letting consumers see how their food is produced, there’s one part of the process that has remained hidden from public view. A third generation butcher, Jes Oelschlagal wants to change that and help educate people on why the job of ending an animals life is noble and important. I think it’s safe to say we don’t pull ant punches with this one.  Check out the True Transparency Project for more info.

Future of Agriculture – How Tokens are Used to Decentralize the Agricultural S


Tomaz Levak and Ziga Drev are the founders of OriginTrail, a service that developed the first purpose-built protocol blockchain-based supply chains. Their protocol aims to bring trust into the supply chain without the need for a middleman brokering trust. The OriginTrail platform was created to bring blockchain tech to supply chains in an interoperable, scalable, and decentralized manner.

 

In this episode, Tomaz and Ziga discuss their product and how it can solve many of the problems encountered with the current supply chain structure. They explain how their product works, the companies they are testing it on, and how it can impact the agricultural sector in the near future. They also share some of the ways you can become involved in their product, such as by being an investor.

 

“Blockchain is a technology that allows you to get rid of this middleman that is brokering trust.”– Ziga Drev

Future of Agriculture – Applications for Blockchain in Agriculture – Part 2


In part 1 of our Blockchain series, I discussed the concept of Blockchain and how it can impact the agricultural industry. I highlighted reputable resources, possible points where Blockchain can positively change, and how it can build trust in all market participants from beginning to end. I also compared Blockchain to BitCoin, emphasizing on their similarities, and why it is the next big thing in the agricultural industry. I also discussed the advantages farmers will reap from it and how a Blockchain system can affect our current supply chain.

 

In this episode, I’ll explain other potential applications of Blockchain as well as some of its current limitations and scenarios where applying a Blockchain system helps improve the system for everyone involved in terms accountability and data accuracy. I’ll also explain how Blockchain can help farmers focus on farming instead of other time-consuming transactions.

 

“Enough people need to adopt Blockchain, to where it could be an effective use to the supply chain.”– Tim Hammerich

Future of Agriculture – Applications for Blockchain in Agriculture – Part 1


Innovations in the agricultural industry come in many forms. From technological advances to improving farming practices, the world is slowly but surely guaranteeing safe and sustainable food sources for generations to come. But, what if we take that a step further? What if we have a system in place that enables traceability, security, improves food safety and gets everyone involved in making sure food quality is top notch? That is what the concept of Blockchain seeks to implement.

 

In this episode, Tim discusses the concept of Blockchain and why it’s one of the most ambitious, yet sensible approaches when it comes to advancing the agricultural industry. He lays down the facts, his sources, and why it’s not so different to how Bitcoin operates. He also explains how a typical Blockchain approach would work with our current supply chain.

 

“Blockchain is a series of technologies that can build trust in our supply chain.”– Tim Hammerich

  • What is Blockchain and how can it affect agricultural businesses?
  • What information does it provide farmers?
  • Can you trust Blockchain with sensitive data?
  • The similarities between BitCoin and Blockchain
