The role of RFID in improving the monitoring of the agricultural products cold chain is demonstrated and a review of the literature throughout 2004-2018 citing the challenges of this technology’s practical implementation in temperature monitoring of perishables is conducted.

RFID Sensing Technologies for Smart Agriculture

The paper aims to identify the uniqueness of RFID sensing technology in solving agriculture issues and its limitations, and surveys its applications to the four areas of agriculture: plant growing environment, soil conditions, plant growth, and the quality of the harvests.

A Review of RFID Sensors, the New Frontier of Internet of Things

A review of technological solutions for RFID sensing and their current or envisioned applications is presented, and RFID sensors are critically compared by separating them into chipped and chipless configurations.

A critical review of sustainable radio frequency identification (rfid)-based livestock monitoring and managemnet systems: towards quality products and practices

These technologies could be integrated with other technologies such as wireless sensor network, cloud computing and other related technologies to make the process of identifying, tracing, tracking and monitoring individual livestock become more intelligent and productive.

This paper aims to explore how Radio Frequency Identification can be utilized on dairy farms to enhance total farm management and to extend the use of RFID onto their farms so as to provide additional benefits for themselves through subsequent enhancements in farm management practices.

Traceability System For Agricultural Productsbased on Rfid and Mobile Technology

The integrated traceability system for agricultural products was developed, based on innovative technology of RFID and mobile computing, and it collaborated with traceability systems and they can be applied for process control and risk management in agriculture.

A Passive UHF RFID Tag for Poultry Traceability

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) has been inc reasingly implemented in various industries over the recent years. These include the use of RFID in, for example, logistics, healthcares and

Operation of RFID in Cold Environment

Currently in the European Union RFID (Radio Frequency Electronic Identification) is being taken into practice for all production animals. However, in Northern European countries livestock are often

Application of RFID technologies in the temperature mapping of the pineapple supply chain

The results showed that RFID temperature tags are analogous with regards to accuracy to the conventional methods, but have a superior performance because they allow quick instrumentation and data recovery, and the possibility of accessing the sensor program and data at any point of the supply chain without line of sight.

RFID tags for identifying and verifying agrochemicals in food traceability systems

RFID tags are proposed as the most appropriate storage systems to trace the use of agrochemicals and a prototype system to record and transfer data in a traceability system is developed, including hardware and software aspects.

Development of monitoring applications for refrigerated perishable goods transportation

Perishable food products are at risk of suffering various damages along the cold chain. The parties involved should control and monitor the conditions of goods in order to ensure their quality for

A Temperature-Managed Traceability System Using RFID Tags with Embedded Temperature Sensors

A solution to the above problem that uses "RFID tags with embedded temperature sensors" and the 'Temperature-Managed Traceability Starter Kit' that contributes to effective risk management by easily enabling consistent temperature management throughout transportation processes is introduced.
