Conceptual Approach for an Extension to a Mushroom Farm Distributed Process Control System: IoT and Blockchain

Collecting, storing, integrating and transforming data, together with the problem of security and privacy, are topics that present great challenges for society. The needs of the industry in general and agri-food in particular in the mushroom pro-duction sector, due to their specificities, requires the adoption of emerging tech-nologies to make them more productive and more competitive in this global mar-ket. In this type of industry it is important, and essential, the control of the envi-ronmental variables of the production areas and the way they are presented, be-cause the information associated with these variables would provide an important complement to the established production control system. In this paper we pro-pose a conceptual approach for an extension to a mushroom farm distributed pro-cess control system with IoT and blockchain integration that not only allows to collect distributed data on the environmental indicators inherent to the mushrooms production, but also complement the already existent production control system, which is extremely important for the overall success of the farm management in-formation system used by the group managers.
