One Solution,
Complete Coverage.

BioTags are a natural yeast product that act as a microscopic barcode to authenticate and trace a range of individual ingredients, crop inputs and finished products. They are mixed with or sprayed onto a product, and can withstand common agricultural manufacturing processes. Using common molecular techniques, BioTags can be identified on-site or in a lab at any point along the supply chain. Unique sequences are stored in the Trailhead™ Digital Registry, providing a secure link between a physical agrochemical product and its digital supply chain.
