In our industry, you may hear the terms “seed-to-sale,” “traceability,” and “track-and-trace” used interchangeably. But while the terms are similar, they refer to two distinct system types. In this article we’ll explore what both seed-to-sale and traceability involve, the differences between them, and why each is important.
