Washington, D.C., December 19, 2018 – AgGateway has announced its 2019 leadership, including the directors of its Strategic Board and Operational Management Board, and leaders of its councils and committees. The non-profit organization fosters collaboration among its 200 member companies, and with global standards organizations and industry partners, to improve how agricultural information can be used to maximize efficiency and productivity.
“The scope and depth of what AgGateway teams are working on continues to be impressive and impactful. With this new slate of leaders, 2019 promises to be a strong year for digital ag solutions,” said AgGateway President and CEO Wendy Smith. “These individuals and their companies are demonstrating their leadership in promoting and enabling the industry’s transition to digital agriculture.”
AgGateway has also released its 2018 Annual Report, which summarizes recent achievements in streamlining how information moves through the supply chain.
“This year the organization released new standards in precision irrigation, remote sensing, and specialty chemical sales reporting – to name just a few,” said Smith. “We saw increased adoption of the ADAPT framework for interoperability in field operations; an energetic, organization-wide approach to challenges of traceability; increasing application of standard identifiers to grease the skids of seamless data exchange; and “Quick Connect” sessions to boost implementation among ag retailers, manufacturers and distributors.”
In addition, AgGateway announced that its 2019 Mid-Year Meeting will be held June 10-13 at Prairie Meadows in Altoona, Iowa; and its 2019 Annual Conference will be held November 4-6 at the Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans, LA.
