One of the key reasons for track and trace is to ensure the product is produced legally and adheres to state and federal laws. It is possible for a crop to test above the legal THC limit of 0.3%, which then classifies as cannabis and must be destroyed.
A certificate of analysis (COA) is granted through lab testing before a crop is harvested to ensure the THC levels are low enough. People in the supply chain want to also know a crop has the COA to prove it was legally grown and it is needed with s a manifest to safely ship across state lines.

Another important reason that tracing is beneficial is to ensure the crop was grown in the USA, which has higher cultivation standards than in some other countries. All this information can be attached to each crop grown using the Efixii blockchain. Using the blockchain network of virtual ledgers this industry can securely store and distribute data along the entire supply chain for all to view and verify.
Tracking a crop from seed to harvest can also ensure the farmer produces a consistent product and consistent supply for the biomass buyer. Using tools such as AI, growers can eliminate some of the biggest challenges in hemp cultivation to improve yield. In production, AI automatically integrates, reads, and transforms data recorded from automated systems. Growers can then use this data in optimizing their various processes. It can also automatically modify growth conditions to better-suited levels for crops to not only grow but thrive.
