AgGateway’s open-source ADAPT software enables agriculture-data interoperability, helping ag retailers, agronomists and growers better manage data and apply it to make improvements in their operations.
All three AgGateway regions are working with ADAPT:
Images from satellites, airplanes and drones can be used to detect
drought, pest damage and other field characteristics. But much of the aerial imagery produced today lacks sufficient metadata to enable users to get the most value out of the imagery they receive. AgGateway’s Aerial Imagery Project (PICS) is defining metadata standards. The specification is in its final review by the working group.
AgGateway’s irrigation work (PAIL) is helping growers evaluate weather,
soil and crop data, to make more informed decisions for smarter energy and water use.
The first two parts of the project have been approved by ASABE (ANSI ASC) as a U.S.
national standard and were submitted to ISO to become a global de jure standard. The
third part is in final review by the AgGateway working group.
AgGateway’s Traceability Working Group has identified numerous points in the supply chain to improve digital connections for traceability. Current sub-groups include Seeding & Crop Protection, and Provenance (which includes grain traceability). The teams have documented processes and have begun to identify data requirements.
Timely and effective soil, tissue, nematode and water testing are key
agricultural success factors.
An AgGateway team in Europe will support machinery manufacturers in implementing data sharing in the potato production chain. The
goal is to support precision farming in the growing, harvesting and storing of potatoes through implementation of machine-to-machine data exchange standards.
Farmers will benefit from easier exchange of data between milking and feeding equipment as an AgGateway team in Europe develops a standard interface for this exchange, in alignment with the initiative of the International Committee for Animal Recording (ICAR).
AgGateway teams in Europe would like to develop a standard interface to exchange data with process computers used in pork and poultry production, such as climate computers and systems for feeding, weighing and counting. The goal is to support sensor-based monitoring of animal and plant production. The work will also enable compliance with the food industry’s demands for transparency.
