By AgGateway’s Conference Committee
It’s time to register for the Mid-Year Meeting, just weeks away at Prairie Meadows in Altoona, Iowa, outside of Des Moines. The meeting will provide valuable insights and networking to better enable the industry's transition to digital agriculture. Much of the meeting consists of open working group sessions where teams discuss ways to more efficiently exchange information in agriculture to maximize efficiency and productivity.
This year’s general session speaker is Jim Krogmeier, professor of electrical and computer engineering at Purdue University, who will discuss blockchain technology and its potential impact on agriculture. Other highlights include the first face-to-face meeting of AgGateway’s new Traceability Working Group, a luncheon for first-time attendees, a “Quick Connect” session featuring face-to-face meetings between trading partners implementing electronic connections, and multiple networking events.
“We anticipate a great meeting this year, with continued work on interoperability in precision agriculture, traceability in a variety of ag operations, efficiencies for the specialty chemical sector, and much more,” said AgGateway President and CEO Wendy Smith. “We invite companies to learn and participate. There are huge benefits to the efficient and accurate exchange of information all along the agricultural and specialty chemical supply chains.”
AgGateway has again set modest registration fees to encourage maximum participation in the collaborative discussions and projects. Registration is just $175 for both members and non-members. The special hotel rate at Prairie Meadows available until May 22 is $109/night.
