Stay Compliant with Plant ID Codes That Stick

A reliable inventory tracking system is key to remaining compliant and on the right side of the law. 

You need to account for every plant in your facility, and the individual barcoding of plants has been the go-to method for most growers. 

Just make sure that your efforts aren't washed away by using an inferior method of plant identification. 

Paper barcode labels attached to the plant are subject to moisture and light degradation.

Go for RFID tags or barcodes printed directly onto plastic wristbands attached to the plant.

Avoid labels that stick directly to the pot; they can wash off or get mixed up during transplant.

An efficient labeling system that "sticks" is sure to keep both you and the regulators happy.
