AgGateway Global Network Overview

AgGateway Global Network (AGN), was founded in 2015 by global-minded AgGateway members as a separate, affiliate organization to expand the use of eConnectivity and the collaborative efforts that AgGateway began in North America to other regions of the world.

Through AGN, regional organizations will share and contribute to the AgGateway Open Standards and Implementation Guidelines, and will work to promote, enable and expand eBusiness in agriculture globally. One regional organization – AgGateway Europe – has already been established, and efforts are under way for affiliate organizations in Latin America, Asia and other regions.
