Ensure the freshest products for consumers, while supporting enhanced regulatory compliance, traceability, and inventory management from seed to sale.

How RFID Is Used in Agriculture

Agricultural industries have been managing their inventory using the same manual processes for the past 30+ years. However, today’s produce and cannabis growers and retailers need to adopt more efficient and effective methods to ensure traceability, track perishability, and comply with regulations. Overall, inventory control has been an ongoing challenge for agricultural producers and distributors, with inaccurate inventory leading to significant waste, dissatisfied customers, and lost revenue.

Item-level RFID is solving these and other challenges in the agriculture industry while also helping growers use technology to improve their production and distribution processes. For example, SML’s item-level software platform enables farmers to track products by their date and location of origin. This technology can also be used to record additional data such as weight, climate conditions, and much more. And, when regulatory compliance is everything, item-level RFID solutions can significantly lessen this burden by automating processes and ensuring accuracy from harvest to sales.
