What is Plaas?

Limited Proof of Extinction

About

Plaas Application is a mobile web application and platform that enables individual farmers or co-operatives to manage their daily farming productions and stocks on the blockchain system using various blockchain technologies.

A mobile web app formatted for smartphones , computers and tablets, and accessed through the computer or mobile device’s web browser. Since web apps are browser-based, they’re intended to be platform and device independent, the application is capable to run on any web-enabled smartphone, computer or tablet.

Plaas token is a protocol whose blockchain runs on a proof called Limited Proof-of-Extinction, where blocks are created by miners that are validating data. Plaas protocol provides a data storage and validation service via a network of independent validators that does not rely on a single coordinator, where: (1) clients pay to retrieve data, (2) Farmers earn tokens by offering data (3) Validation Miners earn tokens by validating data.

Features

What The App Does

The world is changing and becoming more of a global digital village and the way of managing and storing data is also advancing. A technology such as the blockchain has brought disruptive methods to keeping data, managing and tracing transactions and offering technologies of proof. Application features include the following aspects:

Branding

Tracking and tracing origins of animals or fowl: buyers of a product or animal can be able to rely on immutable ledger accounts showing full details of the product they want to buy or sell.

Smart contracts

Records will be kept on the ethereum blockchain thereby providing farmers with daily records of who they sold the product to and who bought the product and which breed of seed or breed of animal is doing well and which is not.

Data

Capture information in real-time (plaas wireless sensors to be intergrated in participating fields for easy monitoring of growth and harvest of crops. Use of Animal Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) developed using blockchain.

Governance and Verifications

Governance and transparence throughout the growth of crops and animals. Verify product and sales through the use of the plaas ERC20 tokens.

Livestock and Cultivation

According to current forecasts, world agricultural production will have to increase by 70% by 2050 to meet the food demands of a world population of over 9 billion. The good news is that there is no need to invent anything new to respond to this challenge; instead, we need to realize the productive potential of family farming as stated in FAMILY FARMING: FEEDING THE WORLD, CARING FOR THE EARTH. Blog By Conchi Quintana from Dimensions March/April 2014

Farmers Cycle On Plaas

Each stock entry on the chain contains stock data and when successfully added, the node will reward the farmer with Plaas tokens. The farmer can redeem these tokens from the open market.

Where did pigs come from?

A study of pig mtDNA sequences by Greger Larson and colleagues in Science establishes that domesticated pigs originated in multiple geographic locations from different ancient wild boar populations. The study shows that wild boars have a strong mtDNA association with their geographic locations, with an apparent origin in Island Southeast Asia. The authors contrast this with other domesticated animals, whose wild relatives do not give as good an opportunity for testing the origin of domesticated forms. Details

History of Sheep

Sheep are an important part of the economy of North Africa, Europe, and West Asia even today. They were much more important long ago. People wore clothes made out of wool from the sheep, and they drank milk from the sheep and ate its cheese and its meat (lamb is the meat of baby sheep; mutton is meat from grown-up sheep, which is tougher and harder to chew). People wove tapestries for the walls, and knotted carpets for the floors, and warm blankets for winter, all out of sheeps' wool. Details

Livestock statistics

Livestock and its inputs are a growing economic sector. The livelihood and income effects of the livestock economy are huge. More than a billion people keep livestock, 60% of rural households do so. It’s a major income source of the poor and especially of women in developing countries. The dairy industry in particular, plays a strong role for the livelihood of poor people. The livestock capital as part of the overall agricultural capital amounts to more than a quarter. Land valued at market prices is about half. Livestock capital is therefore a very important element of the overall capital stock of world agriculture.
Meat production is growing fast, especially in the countries of East and Southeast Asia. The growth rates are exponential. Latin America, the Caribbean, and Brazil also play an important role and show a very significant growth in meat production. Milk production did not grow quite so fast. It is mainly India, which drives that global supply upward. Details

Banana production

It is estimated that world banana production increased by 30 percent over the 1990s, mainly as a result of rising Cavendish output. The total value of international banana trade ranges between US$ 4.5 and 5 billion per year. Plantains are mainly produced in Africa and Latin America, while other types of cooking bananas are grown in Africa and Asia. Latin America is the leading region for Cavendish production, followed by Asia. The bulk of other dessert bananas are cultivated in Latin America and Asia. The world’s leading producer of Cavendish bananas is India, followed by Ecuador, China, Colombia and Costa Rica. These 5 countries together account for over half of global Cavendish output
Bananas are of great importance to small-scale farmers in the developing countries of the tropics and sub-tropics. The crop can be grown in a range of environments and production systems, and provides a nutritious staple food and a significant source of revenue all year round. Growing populations in many of the countries where bananas provide a vital food source mean that productivity increases are essential. However, such increases in production must be brought about in the face of growing pest and disease pressure, and constantly changing environmental and economic conditions. In order to accelerate efforts in producing improved varieties of Musa, the International Network for the Improvement of Banana and Plantain (INIBAP) was instrumental in the formation of PROMUSA, the Global Programme for Musa Improvement, in 1997.

Carrots production

The Carrot is an economically important horticultural crop that has gained popularity since world War Two (ended 1945) due to increased awareness of its nutritional value. Orange carrots are highly revered as “good for the eyes” due to their high content of hydrocarbon carotenoids, a class of phytochemicals that are often precursors to vitamin A. α- and β-Carotene predominate in orange carrots.
Types of Carrots - there are two distinct categories of carrot in the modern world, the Cultivated Carrot (domesticated) and the Wild Carrot. The cultivated carrot is the second most popular vegetable in the world after the potato. When you read the nutrition pages you will see and agree why it should be number one. The health benefits of carrots are well established and cover a wide range in human health conditions. In general, carrots are important for healthy eyes, skin, hair, growth, and immune systems. They can lower cholesterol, prevent heart attacks, and help reduce the risk of certain types of cancers. Carrots are packed with nutrients. Details

Importance of Apricots

Apricots are those beautifully orange colored fruits full of beta-carotene and fiber that are one of the first signs of summer. Although dried and canned apricots are available year-round, fresh apricots with a plentiful supply of vitamin C and are in season in North America from May through August. Any fresh fruit you see during the winter months have been imported from either South America or New Zealand.
Relatives to peaches, apricots are small, golden orange fruits, with velvety skin and flesh, not too juicy but definitely smooth and sweet. Some describe their flavor as almost musky, with a faint tartness that lies somewhere between a peach and a plum. Details
