ICT GPS Traceability
AgrumSoft beguns as a scientific-technological project in 2013 on the implementation of a traceability system that allows to recognise from which plantations comes harvested coffee and under which conditions of climate and cultural management, to identify the factors that determine the quality attributes to propose the postharvest process, such as drying and roasting. This generated a broader project that led to further studies and short-term solutions considering the coffee price crisis and its social impact. Then in 2015 was co-financing by the Peruvian National Council of Science and Technology (CONCYTEC - CIENCIACTIVA Program).
Using an App installed in a Tablet each farmer responds to a questionnaire with geo-referencing four points in the parcel, obtaining a satellite map with information that allows to build a profile of the field and a QR code for each crop batch and products from the parcel. This process is called ICT-GPS Traceability where information is kept encrypted in the memory of the Tablet and then monthly is saved in the cloud using Wi-Fi in the city. Finally we obtain like a real-time information from coffee crops.
The logical matrix of the AgrumSoft App is based on four axes: 1) Genotypic: where varieties of coffee species are identified. 2) Ecosystemic: where the accompanying species and associated with coffee cultivation, such as fruit trees and forest species, are identified. 3) Environmental: Where climate changes and abiotic variables are correlated, such as temperature, humidity, rain, etc. 4) Cultural: It refers to the management of farmers such as fertilization, weed control, pest control, etc. This matrix determines the questionnaire of the App and generates a great data for the design of strategies of production and quality facilitating the adaptation to the climatic change.
