For companies that process agricultural products, it is common to maintain relationships with multiple growers. Harvested product is purchased from each grower, and over the course of a growing season, a single processor will accept receipts from all the growers with which purchasing agreements have been established. For the purposes of traceability, information such as the specific ranch, field, and/or block for a given grower is recorded with every receipt of product.
