Agriculture

Labeling and coding systems provided by Griffin-Rutgers are well suited for the agricultural industry.  The labeling of seeds and grains has a number of unique challenges which can make choosing the right labeling system a time-consuming task.

Current day seed labels serve as carriers for regulatory information, custom seed variety and seed treatment information, lot codes/dates and GHS compliance. We know it is absolutely critical that all regulatory seed and treatment information is secure and reliable, which protects seed companies, farmers and consumers.

There are various ways that seeds and grains are packaged. One of which is packaging for individual sales to consumers; for instance, plants and vegetables. The coding and labeling for these types of packets is different from bulk seed packaging, as they are tagged, instead of printed on the bag.
