Our Efforts in Agricultural Business

Daiwa Computer is engaged in various efforts aimed at establishing “i-農業®” (i-Nogyo), our effort to connect agriculture with IT.

1.Our Efforts in Production

1)  We acquired agricultural production facilities in Fukuroi City, Shizuoka. (Built a 2,148 m² greenhouse on 8,800 m² of farmland; 2,557 m² of which are consigned to Kondo Farm)
2)  Melons and tomatoes are grown by hydroponic culture, which uses no soil.
3)  We are working on improving the tomato harvest using our proprietary Total Environment Control, which controls the supply of nutrient mix according to the state of growth.

2.Our Efforts in Distribution

EPCIS: Promotion of advanced utilization of RFID
(Efforts regarding traceability of agricultural products using RFID (IC tags))
The EPCIS system allows customers to check agricultural orders that they made on an EC site with regards to their management state in the distribution process.
Customers can check the state of growth of their purchased produce and when they are good to eat directly from the QR code.

1)   Building a distribution traceability system
  • Manpower for goods acceptance operation is reduced by the use of IC tags (RFID)
  • Environmental changes during the distribution process are recorded on the RFID
  • Consumers check the information recorded on the RFID over the Internet
2)   Putting into practice a new model for agricultural EC
Daiwa Computer linked the e-Commerce system, IC tag-based traceability, and social media (participatory exchange), realizing traceability at multiple logistical bases in and outside of Japan. Customers can retrieve information on their purchased produce, including the growth status.

EPCIS Cloud Network

Inspection work situation

A system that can confirm the nurturing situation etc.

3)  Validation is also performed with shipping overseas (Hong Kong)

Location confirmation using EPCIS

Thanks to EPCIS, we can see that the melons have been transported to Hong Kong.

3.Our Efforts for MIC’s Project to Promote ICT Town Development

Utilization of a distribution traceability system using RFID
Daiwa Computer conducted a demonstration experiment for using this RFID system as a distribution traceability system under normal circumstances and using it as a relief aid supply function in times of disaster.
* This project was adopted as a “Project to construct commerce infrastructure for sextic industry equipped with the function of providing relief supplies in times of disaster” in the open recruitment for the “FY2012 Project to Promote ICT Town Development,” a demonstration project program of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC).

4.Our Efforts in Agricultural Systems

Daiwa Computer developed systems based on the know-how gained from the corporate farm.

1)   Farm management system (Japanese only)
This system allows operators to record agricultural operations via smartphones using NFC tags and realizes traceability at the point of production.
2)   Integrated environment control system (Japanese only)
This system controls equipment so that the protected horticulture environment facilitates photosynthesis.
3)   Order management system (Japanese only)
This system allows operators to manage incoming orders and inventory at agricultural corporations with barcodes, etc.
4)   Shipping adjustment system (Japanese only)
This system allows operators at JA and other organization to make shipping requests to producer organizations from their tablets.
