AgGateway's Ag Industry Identification System (AGIIS) directory is a database system that houses agricultural eBusiness reference data for industry subscribers. We've recently expanded access to AGIIS so that non-subscribers can access unique identifiers, with the goal of enabling and expanding eBusiness in agriculture. [For information on accessing and exploring AGIIS, see the resources in the right column.]
The AGIIS directory provides a repository for industry common data elements and serves as the fundamental building block for efficient electronic interactions between agricultural companies. Today, AGIIS contains 5.2 million uniquely identified entities and almost 160,000 agricultural products ranging from crop protection chemicals, seed and fertilizer.
AGIIS is a “living” directory that is constantly being updated and enhanced. AGIIS features a Web interface that allows AGIIS subscribers to easily add and maintain products. With updated XML and CSV bulk file formats and new web services, users can now add and update large datasets.
Other enhancements include security features so that AGIIS subscribers can precisely specify which users can access their product information. Subscribers can manage security settings at a company and product level to fit any number of security needs and preferences.

We will provide a brief overview of the tools and documentation available to you and will focus on reading and writing .NET code to utilize the AGIIS Directory. Whether you want to consume web services or utilize the bulk process – we will talk all about it and share cool tips & tricks along the way.
