AgGateway Asia: Leaders from all sectors of Japanese agriculture recently met in Tokyo to discuss the possibility of establishing AgGateway Japan. At a meeting of potential founding members, some of the global companies proposed expanding the geographic scope to include China, South Korea and countries in Southeast Asia. The group agreed. Support for AgGateway in general and for the proposed Asia geographic scope was expressed at a larger meeting of about 80 participants later in the day. Overall the series of meetings and dinners could not have gone better. The group is planning the next steps to legally establish the organization.
AgGateway Europe: Leaders in European agriculture recently met in Amsterdam where F4F Agriculture hosted an AgGateway Europe meeting. There were about 60 people present, exceeding expectations. The morning session included presentations by F4F, AgriFirm, BayWa, and DKE. In the afternoon, three workshops were conducted in parallel. One group discussed interoperability challenges, identifying a lack of harmonized reference data being a key one. Another group considered the challenges of authentication and authorization as it relates to providing access to agricultural data. The third group continued work on access to reference data. Overall the sessions were productive, and the group is eager to keep working.
