Abstract

Thailand mainly relies on agriculture and more than 57% of thai people are in agricultural businesses which contribute significantly to the gdp of the country. However, most thai farmers are still poor compare to those who are in other occupations because of several problems such as informal debt, illegal loan, undersell, middlemen, product flood, etc. We choose to focus on the middleman issue because we think that a solution can be found easily by using information technology. We create the “e-direct agricultural trading” system based on auction pricing system to reduce the intermediate person, ensure fair pricing of agricultural products for food producers and buyers, and consolidate various products, buyers and sellers together in one single market.

E-dat is an online agricultural trading system based on standard and multi-item auction which allows participants to bid or sell agricultural goods and services. The standard auction is an ascending bid auction and a winner is a person who offers the high bid in a period of time. Another method is multi-item auction, which is an ascending bid auction and allows multiple sellers to form a group in order to auction product efficiently. There are several winners who offer sufficiently high prices, and they will take the amount of products equal to their demand. This scheme would increase the selling power of the farmers as though they are in a cooperative organization.
