Precision Agriculture – AgGateway has several important initiatives under way in precision ag, with the participation of more than 100 companies involved with the Precision Ag Council. Major links include:

  • ADAPT toolkit  – The Agricultural Data Application Programming Toolkit (ADAPT) will eliminate the major pain points to broad use of precision agriculture data by easily enabling interoperability between different software and hardware applications. AgGateway's ADAPT Committee is now coordinating with software companies on plug-ins needed for ADAPT's adoption. The ADAPT framework is comprised of an Agricultural Application Data Model, a common API (Application Programming Interface), and a combination of open source and proprietary data conversion plugins. See also this wiki link.
  • SPADE – The Standardized Precision Ag Data Exchange (SPADE) Project is continuing work to establish a framework of standards to simplify mixed-fleet field operations, regulatory compliance, crop insurance reporting, tractability, sustainability assessment and field or crop-scale revenue management.
  • PAIL– The goal of the Precision Ag Irrigation Language (PAIL) Project is to provide an industry-wide format that will enable the exchange and use of data to and from irrigation management systems, which are currently stored in a variety of proprietary formats.

Sales Reporting Format (Ag Retail) – The AgGateway Sales Reporting File Format is a tab delimited text file format that can be used for sales reporting. It is targeted for use by parties that are unable to implement the preferred method of reporting sales electronically — AgGateway XML Product Movement Report (PMR) messages sent over a B2B connection (e.g., ebMS/ebXML, AS/2, web services).

Seed Connectivity – The Seed Connectivity page provides documentation to be used as a guideline for those wising to connect with their trading partners electronically.
