Into the future

Country Guide, Apr 3, 2019 – “It’s kind of the wild, wild west out there — a lot of different files and formats and a lot of different data moving in different directions,” Shearer says. AgGateway is working on the problem. The non-profit organization has more than 200 member companies and its mission is to “promote and enable the industry’s transition to digital agriculture, and expand the use of information to maximize efficiency and productivity.”

Making Sense of Blockchain and What It Can Do for Agricultural Data

PrecisionAg, Apr 1, 2019 – There is also the issue of the planter being red, the sprayer green, fertilizer spreader yellow, tractor blue, and the combine silver. Each machine or terminal has its own file format making accessing and sharing a complete record of farm operations within a given field difficult. Groups like AgGateway and their ADAPT Toolkit are really moving the needle on interoperability from the file format standpoint. They are also starting efforts to take the next step and standardize meanings of different data elements. For example, one terminal may contain the crop “corn”, another terminal has “maize”, does that mean the yield map is for grain, silage, or round bales. Now that we are starting to bridge the gap of different data formats and “speaking the same language” we need to make sure we all mean the same thing when we use a term.
