By Ben Craker, Portfolio Manager
Some very productive working sessions at the AgGateway North American Mid-Year Meeting created momentum for progress in the months ahead, and many of the working groups are at or near completion on the deliverables identified in their charter. Several groups are putting on the final touches and preparing to hand things over to the Digital Resource Center.
This also means they are looking ahead to the next set of Working Groups to address issues that were identified as out of scope, or to take on new problems that were uncovered while the Working Groups were developing their resources.
As we wind down the current efforts and charter new working groups, be on the lookout for additional meetups and calls for participation in the coming months. This structure in AgGateway is meant to keep volunteer commitments of time and talent reasonable and to drive progress by focusing on smart deliverables within each project charter.
To address bigger, more interconnected issues we do have the three subcommittees (Agrisemantics, Data Linking, and the new Field Boundaries) that focus on providing more general direction and prioritization in different areas.
Below are some highlights from Working Groups and Meetups:
As always, if you have any questions on a specific working group or subcommittee feel free to contact the Portfolio Manager Ben Craker.
