Standards have an important role in helping to address challenges in sustainable agriculture. The IEEE has a portfolio of standards, programs and resources to help advance food security, food safety, food traceability and climate-smart agriculture practices.


Featured Standards

IEEE P2418.3™ Standard for the Framework of Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) Use in Agriculture
This standard provides a common framework for distributed ledger technology (DLT) usage, implementation, and interaction in agriculture. 


IEEE P2992™ Recommended Practice for Data Expression, Exchange, and Processing in Smart Agriculture
This standard defines recommended practices for designing smart agriculture data focusing on the data format, data tags, their naming rules, and data transfers to show the unified practices of data expression, exchange, and processing.

IEEE P21451-1-6™ Standard for a Smart Transducer Interface for Sensors, Actuators, and Devices - Message Queue Telemetry Transport (MQTT) for Networked Device Communication
This standard defines a method for transporting IEEE 1451™ messages over a network using Message Queue Telemetry Transport (MQTT) to establish a lightweight, simplified protocol structure to handle IEEE 1451™ communications.
