Peter KoomanThe potato chain is largely automated nowadays and data is collected everywhere. The farmer collects data about his crop, about the soil moisture and about the weather in order to control the cultivation as best he can. He also undertakes crop registration for himself or for third parties to show that he is a responsible farmer. The farmer then records that information in his storage facility in order to store his crop properly. The trader records data to administer the potatoes and manage his stocks, and the end user records the quality, quantity and possible ways of using a potato lot.
