“The annual conference is the best opportunity of the year to see – and take part in – connectivity activities that are changing the way producers and their trading partners will do business in the years ahead, from making order-to-invoice processes more powerful and cost efficient, to advances in precision agriculture," said AgGateway President and CEO Wendy Smith. “It’s an ideal forum to bring colleagues and trading partners to learn about the substantial benefits ag companies are gaining through eConnectivity.”

The program is especially geared to ag retailers, distributors, manufacturers of ag inputs (e.g., seed, crop nutrition, crop protection), and software and data service providers, as well as professionals in precision ag, academia, agricultural organizations, students and ag media.
