Precision Ag Council Launches SPADE3

The Precision Ag Council has launched the third phase of its successful Standardized Precision Ag Data Exchange (SPADE) Project, which will expand on existing work related to automated data exchange in modern farm operations, to focus on crop scouting, crop nutrition, wireless asset and vehicle data exchange, and automation of commodity data for rail and truck transport. The project, which is a collaboration of 24 AgGateway member companies and precision ag experts, will continue to provide improved efficiency and time savings for growers. Interested participants are still welcome to join. Read more


SPADE Project Shares Its Vision for Data Flow

The Standardized Precision Ag Data Exchange (SPADE) Project is asking companies involved in precision agriculture to commit to sourcing reference data in a way that makes it machine-readable, and to host an API (application programming interface) or source the data through a partner. This has multiple benefits to companies involved in precision ag. The SPADE team has developed a new flyer that explains the vision for data flow, including a helpful diagram. You’ll find the flyer here.


AgGlossary Draws Industry Interest 

The AgGlossary, launched last fall, has attracted more than 8,000 visits in the short time it’s been live. The glossary – at AgGlossary.org – is a one-stop location for agriculture terms, definitions, acronyms, key words and synonyms. It’s publicly available for us by all segments of agriculture. Visit AgGlossary.org, or check out the new fact sheet. 


Check Us Out on Social Media 

In keeping with the spirit of the AgGateway mission for eConnectivity, the association’s Communications Committee has made a commitment to communicate via social platforms. You can now follow AgGateway on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and Google+ .


AgGateway and CRISTAL To Merge Crop Protection Standards 

AgGateway and the CRISTAL Product Traceability team of CropLife International are merging their bar code guidelines, also known as traceability standards, a move that will allow crop protection companies with global operations to enhance data exchange in managing product traceability, inventory control, regulatory compliance and quality control.

Seed Connectivity (SC-II)
A total of 22 companies are involved with the SC-II project. See SC-II Project page.


Crop Nutrient Connectivity (CNC-II)
The CNC-II project builds on considerable success achieved through previous work, including eConnectivity for contracts, ordering, shipping and invoicing, which is complete among several distributors and manufacturers. Ten companies are now involved in Phase II. See the CNC-II Project page.

 

Precision Ag Irrigation Leadership (PAIL)
AgGateway’s Precision Ag Council and the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance are co-sponsoring this cross-industry project that will help growers better manage water and energy use by integrating weather, soil, crop and other data from various hardware and software programs.  See the PAIL Project page.


Standardized Precision Ag Data Exchange (SPADE)
SPADE is addressing the problem of moving data from machine systems to farm management information systems (FMIS) and to other FMIS, so the farmer and ag retailer can improve decision-making and improve productivity.  See the SPADE Project page.  Access the new AgGateway Extensions to ISO 11783 Part 10 here. This is documentation that fills a critical gap in providing data exchange between diverse devices and systems used by farmers for seeding operations.


Crop Protection Canada Connectivity (CPCC)
With 10 companies participating, this project targeted at the crop protection business in Canada is slated to run through December 2015. See the CPCC Project page.

Initiatives
Tonnage Reporting (TRP)

The Paperless Tonnage Reporting Initiative is working toward full, nationwide implementation of paperless reporting. The project is a collaborative effort of the Association of American Plant Food Control Officials (AAPFCO), The Fertilizer Institute (TFI), the Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) and AgGateway. 

See www.FertTon.com

Auto Identification Data Capture (AIDC)
AIDC includes technologies such as bar codes, Radio Frequency Identification, magnetic strips, and smart cards. Given its benefits, a new task force is working to define what type of AIDC project AgGateway members desire (e.g., guidelines, implementation, etc.), creating a charter for that project, and getting approval by the various councils interested. See the AIDC page.
