AgGateway’s Ag Retail Council is composed of companies that deliver agricultural inputs to growers. AgGateway has already enabled a number of these sectors – crop nutrition, crop protection, seed, and others – to standardize transactions and business processes. The council is focused on connecting the retail link in the ag supply chain.

Streamlining the business connection between these varied segments using eBusiness will be critical to retail operations now and in the future.


The Ag Retail Council’s mission is to be the champion for the retailer in eAgriculture.

Goals & Objectives

2017 Focus
Re-Addressing/Re-Focusing the latest pain points. During the 2016 Annual Conference, the Ag Retail Council held a working session around the latest pain points the Ag Retail segment is experiencing. The group narrowed down the list to four pain points for focus in 2017:
  1. Getting the eConnectivity message to upper management (importance of eConnectivity implementation)
  2. Adoption of technology to support a high-value proposition
  3. Challenge the council silos within AgGateway – action across councils
  4. Develop and use clear value statement that include ROI messaging/proof points
Each of the pain points will have a working group to help define and move forward with action items.
