By placing RFID tags onto agricultural products’ packages, farmers can determine the health condition of the product, making it convenient for processing companies to concurrently add information on the tag, such as enterprise codes, the processing date, batch processing, and package weight.

How RFID Technology Is Used in Agriculture


Items that are barcoded can easily be upgraded to a RFID system. RFID offers many improvements over the barcode.  An RFID tag can hold much more data about an item than a barcode. Also, RFID tags are not susceptible to damages that often happen to barcode labels, like tearing and smudging.

RFID labels are used in inventory management, asset tracking, controlling access to restricted areas, ID Badging, and supply chain management.


There are many uses for RFID technology in agriculture. Bales of hay can be tagged, capturing the date harvested, the field where it was harvested, the temperature, weight, moisture level and the nutritional information to be captured and stored. RFID has many potentials that busy farmers are seeking. RFID is non-contact. It has a high identification rate, mass memory, secure access, and can be integrated into an existing system without difficulty.

 

Data collection in greenhouses is also doable with specialized RFID tags and readers, which are designed for warm and humid conditions. 

The employment of RFID makes it possible to monitor the chain of perishable food and the expansion of new applications in fields like environmental monitoring, irrigation, specialty crops and farm machinery.

 
The Taiwanese fruit producers are using a RFID solution to track the receipt and processing of its fresh fruit at its facility. By using passive ultrahigh frequency RFID tags attached to plastic crates, the company can monitor every phase that the fruit goes through, and the conditions within the coolers before the fruit is transported to stores throughout Taiwan, China, Japan and Korea.

By placing RFID tags onto agricultural products’ packages, farmers can determine the health condition of the product, making it convenient for processing companies to concurrently add information on the tag, such as enterprise codes, the processing date, batch processing, and package weight. 

The farmers can track their goods via a computer network. Produce can be examined through a tag, quickly moving the inspection along. By reading the information stored on a RFID tag, a decision could be made whether a temperature shift will do harm to a fresh agricultural product or not.

 

RFID can also be used to monitor climate conditions during transportation. 

RFID can be employed to detect unauthorized openings of shipments during transportation, storage, distribution and sales.  Before agricultural products enter a warehouse, the data stored on the RFID tag can be transmitted to a computer. The computer will release warehousing instructions as to the suitable rack and slots. 


A plant’s health management RFID can be used to check on a plant’s health though plant health inspection and certification, as well as agrochemical management. It can also help to cut down on the proliferation of plant pathogens. RFID is been inserted in many plants for different purposes. It is used in cactus to avoid theft, in citrus trees and cypress to monitor disease, and in grapevines for traceability and cloning selection.

RFID is used to evaluate the quality of apples by monitoring gases produced by apples such as ethylene. RFID tags integrated with gas sensors (O2 and CO2) is used for checking the freshness of broccoli. Semi-passive RFID is used for the calculation of the shelf life of lettuce, which is transported in refrigerated reefers, and for tracking the quality and shelf life of tomatoes.


AssetWorx! is capable to collect, filter, store and analyze the collected data. Growers can use state-of-the-art methods to deliver multiple crops a year by meticulously tracking growing conditions, such as light level, humidity, temperature and soil chemistry.

 

Using the right RFID Software, such as AssetWorx! can afford growers the ability to track these variables to supply real-time notification of changes and yield analytics to control and improve growing techniques.
