Dynamic Systems, Inc., Redmond, Wash., announced an end-to-end traceability system for aquaponic, aeroponic and hydroponic growers using the SIMBA line of barcode tracking and labeling solutions.

This system gives processors the ability to record, label and track products faster and more accurately while including numerous data points.

SIMBA uses an automated process to track the produce through each growth stage. It runs on tablets or touchscreen computers in the growing area, and collects multiple points of data, including produce type, nutrients added, start and end time at each stage, harvest date and time and so on. 

SIMBA prints product labels at any pack line with all pertinent information, including a GS-1 code. The system can store unlimited label formats, and switches from one to another with the press of a button. 

At the time of shipping, the van loading feature tracks each carton or pallet onto a specific van. A bill of lading is then produced automatically, which eliminates disputes with the customer regarding what was actually shipped.
