PACE Executive Forum

Thank you for taking the time to visit with us at the 2022 PACE Executive Forum. We hope you learned a little bit more about the work we do at AgGateway, and how our current and planned work on standards and systems are developed to enable seamless data connectivity across the crop production channel from manufacturer to retailer through to the farm.

The networking and discussion here at the PACE Executive Forum encompassed the vast opportunities and challenges we face as we look ahead to 2023 and beyond. When leading manufacturers and organizations work together to develop and bring technology advances to market that improve efficiency, sustainability, and profitability, we all benefit. However, the vast potential of these innovations can only be fully realized when systems are seamlessly interoperable. This is the focus of AgGateway, a global, non-profit organization that identifies and works through solutions for agriculture’s most significant connectivity pain points.

We do this in conjunction with our more than 200 member organizations, who provide capital and volunteers from within their own companies to work collectively and develop solutions. This is difficult and time-consuming work, but essential if our businesses are expected to effectively compete and thrive in the years ahead. Seamless digital connectivity allows manufacturers, retailers, and farmers to operate at peak efficiency, to understand more about the land, soil, and water they utilize, and to meet the data requirements of emerging and evolving sustainability and carbon programs.

Below, you’ll find links to information that will provide a clearer picture of what we do at AgGateway. If you’d like to hear more or would like to schedule a call to discuss our work and future plans in more detail, please reach out to Portfolio Manager Ben Craker via email using this link.

1. Process Efficiency: A Core Mission

Creating efficiency and improving the value of innovation is what digital connectivity is all about, and at the core of AgGateway’s mission. This brief video provides more insight on how this fits into Modern Agriculture:

2. Targeted Initiatives

AgGateway listens carefully to the industry and its member companies, and gains consensus around the most important issues facing the agriculture value chain. From irrigation efficiency and in-field product identification to soil test standardization, AgGateway drives digital connectivity by bringing together companies to tackle problems in a neutral, non-competitive environment.

3. Case Studies 

AgGateway has made a significant difference all along the agriculture value chain, with connectivity projects that have improved business processes and farming practices. Employing current and emerging AgGateway tools, farmers and their trusted partners are better able to provide safe, abundant, and sustainably produced food for American consumers.
