October 20, Fineko/abc.az. The Agricultural Services Agency under the Ministry of Agriculture has introduced blockchain technology for the first time in the country.

ABC.AZ was informed at the MoA that within the framework of targeted measures taken in connection with the development of the non-oil sector in the country, along with other areas, the development of seed production, which is one of the strategically important production branches of agriculture, ensuring the needs of producers of high-quality seeds at the expense of domestic production, was identified as one of the priorities, and in this direction the Agency is taking the necessary measures.

In order to prevent the entry into trade and the use of low-quality planting material of unknown origin, as well as seeds of plants not registered in the state register, the Agency carries out uniform labeling and certification in accordance with international standards.
