ADAPT Standard Development: Work Begins August 3

Since its initial release in 2016, AgGateway’s ADAPT Framework has demonstrated its value to agriculture with an impressive record of adoption. ADAPT’s binary libraries have been downloaded more than 222,000 times, and the source code has been downloaded thousands of times more.

Now, AgGateway is ready to take the next step forward by making ADAPT a full-blown industry standard, and we are inviting both members and non-members to contribute to the project. Details are provided at the end of this piece.

The ADAPT Data Model (ADM) is at the center of ADAPT, and many in the industry have referred to it as a standard. But there is more work to be done before AgGateway can call it an industry standard.

To help us get there, AgGateway has contracted with FarmBelt North to take the ADM components and define them in a cutting-edge standards-management tool. In the process, rough edges will be smoothed, ambiguous parts will be logged for further discussion, and unused parts will be left out. The FarmBelt team has made great progress in just a couple of months.

As a volunteer participant in the ADAPT Standard Project, you will:

  • Participate in discussions around ambiguous aspects of ADAPT
  • Provide input on what new requirements the ADAPT Standard should address. For example, areas such as livestock production for which the ADM has little support.

The initial meeting will be held Wednesday, August 3 from 11:00 – 12:00 US Eastern Time (New York), 17:00 – 18:00 CET (Paris).
