AgGateway’s Ag Retail Council is composed of companies that deliver agricultural inputs to growers. AgGateway has already enabled a number of these sectors – crop nutrition, crop protection, seed, and others – to standardize transactions and business processes. The council is focused on connecting the retail link in the ag supply chain.

Streamlining the business connection between these varied segments using eBusiness will be critical to retail operations now and in the future.


The Ag Retail Council’s mission is to be the champion for the retailer in eAgriculture.
