agriculture industry


Working outdoors throughout the growing season is hard work. Whether it’s monitoring conditions and data logging to checking inventories of fertilizer to tracking assets, farming requires a computing solution that stands up to the toughest outdoor environments. Advanced Automation’s mobile computer solutions offer a variety of outdoor devices designed with GPS capabilities, sunlight – readable displays and integrated wireless communications to keep your farming operations running smoothly. Thermal printers designed to print on demand bar coded plant/product labels or tags are another part of a successful solution to streamline your processes.


The Horticultural and Agricultural markets are quickly changing, moving toward more automation and faster referencing techniques. Bar code labeling is an excellent way to implement these changes. Bar code labeling can be used for product identification for sales or tracking purposes. Descriptive labels can be used to save staff time, thus increasing efficiency and effectiveness that ultimately effect the bottom line.


Bar code labels can be used to identify plants being grown or sold. Various types of bar code labels are available, including graphics, for all your labeling and tagging needs. Labels can be used for hang tags, strip or loop tags, plant tags, pot labels and sticks, or barcode patches for pricing or labeling. Labels can include price, size of plants, PLU, SKU, UPC bar codes, color pictures, and/or your company logo. Labels can also include growing requirements, pricing, and plant maturation information for use in greenhouse, garden center, nursery, or retail environments.
