AgGateway members that participate in or support the production, distribution or use of crop protection products are eligible to join this council. The council focuses on promotion of eBusiness within the segment by fostering implementation of eBusiness connections, growing membership, collaborating with other agricultural segments and representing crop protection requirements within the AgGateway standards bodies. 

In the past few years this council has achieved notable success: 75% of industry order-to-invoice and sales reporting transactions between manufacturers and distributors are now executed electronically utilizing the AgGateway Open Standards.


The Crop Protection Council will lead and promote the value of information exchange and its efficiencies to drive business value within the sector, by identifying initiatives and opportunities, and leveraging technologies.

Goals & Objectives

  1. Demonstrate the value of information exchange and efficient business processes. 
  2. Maintain active critical mass with the crop protection segment. 
  3. Identify pain points and potential initiatives that could be piloted by a small group of companies for quicker & repeatable implementation or increase the efficiencies of business processes. 
  4. Assess and leverage the technologies to address data challenges with the crop protection industry.
Current activities
  1. Review business rules which were put in place with the original Crop Protection Connectivity Project over 10 years ago. This activity will allow us to adapt to changed business processes and remind companies how the messages are intended to be used. It is especially important as we continue to have new connections, sometimes with newer message versions, and we need to be able to provide guidance to these companies. 
  2. Update council strategic plan for 2017-2018. 
  3. Evaluate current business processes for pain points which the council could help address.
