Thai rice project explores RFID

Paddy_Plant.jpgThailand’s Hom Mali project is testing the use of RFID applications in its rice production supply chain. The Software Industry Promotion Agency (SIPA) has created a prototype system which tracks the flow of rice in the Roi-Kaen Sarn cluster area of the country.

The system tracks the flow of rice from the Khon Kaen Bank of Agricultural Cooperatives, where the rice is grown, to the cooperatives’ community mill. Rice trucks will be tagged at the time of loading and then scanned when it reaches the mill, to confirm the receipt of the rice and its point of origin. The tags will include additional information such as weight loads and truck numbers. For the pilot project, 500 tags will be used.

SIPA representatives hope the pilot project, which is expected to conclude in September, will develop into a system that enables local farmers to better compete in the global market. In an effort to further boost the regional economy, the project also encourages local software companies to adopt domestic supply-chain management software instead of importing it from abroad.

The system’s prototype will also be tested on other local agricultural products such as tapioca.

  1. Search Engines Parser is enormously fast, 100% automatic search engine results extractor you were dreaming about for many times.

You can specify which search engine(s) to use and what kind of data to parse. Search Engines Parser can output results to screen, export to MySQL database and write to CSV file.

  2. When you’re in a not good position and have no cash to get out from that point, you would have to receive the mortgage loans. Because that would help you unquestionably. I get bank loan every year and feel myself good because of this.

  3. Have no enough cash to buy a car? Worry no more, because it is real to take the loan to resolve such kind of problems. Hence take a financial loan to buy everything you want.
