Produce Traceability App

This new app was developed by Cal Jamerson, Produce Safety Extension Associate, K-State Research and Extension

To help small produce farmers track their produce operation from farm to buyer, a new Traceability App for Produce Growers is available.

The app allows the grower to map their fields, designate a code for each commodity grown, generate a harvest date and lot code, and create a product sticker to print out the information and adhere to the packaging. These lot codes can also be added to invoices for the buyers.

This tool will enhance the small produce growers ability to track their crops and in the case of a recall, that product can be easily tracked back to a specific field.
