Members of the Seed Council had a productive meeting in Arden Hills, Minn., last month, making significant progress toward goals of additional seed processes and messaging to help alleviate specific pain points identified by the council. Thanks to WinField United for hosting!
More than 30 people from 18 different companies participated in the two-day meeting. The group discussed four new processes, and new messages and documentation were created for:
The group also worked on documentation for the four processes, including:
In terms of next steps, the plan is to create flow diagrams for each process and complete the documentation by April 15. The documentation would subsequently be reviewed by AgGateway’s Standards & Guidelines Committee – the goal is to have it for their review by early May, seeking approval by mid-May, with public review in early summer and publication of the new messages by July.
Thanks to everyone who participated! If you’d like more information on the group’s activities, join the Seed Council on their next call or contact Member Services at Member.Services@AgGateway.org.
