One of the most important eBusiness meetings for agriculture is just days away, June 17-21 in Johnston, Iowa. The AgGateway Mid-Year Meeting features collaborative working sessions where agriculture companies will move forward on valuable efforts to promote, enable and expand eBusiness in agriculture. These efforts are helping companies to implement supply chain efficiencies in such sectors as precision agriculture, seed, grain, feed, crop nutrition and crop protection, as well as for ag retail companies.
There is no registration fee for the Mid-Year Meeting, which makes it a great opportunity for those who have been curious about eBusiness and the organization to see AgGateway in action, and to join in networking events and educational sessions.
“The AgGateway Mid-Year Meeting is a terrific way for every agri-business to learn the latest about how the industry is using eBusiness to improve productivity and profitability, to take part in setting industry direction for the future, and to find out how to get involved with AgGateway,” said AgGateway CEO Rod Conner. “Even if you aren’t a member, I encourage you to come to Des Moines and get involved.”
The meeting will feature updates on AgGateway projects, including the Standardized Precision Ag Data Exchange (SPADE) project and other Precision Ag Council projects, the Tonnage Reporting Project for feed and fertilizer, the latest on Seed Connectivity II, the new Automated Information Data Capture (AIDC) Project, and much more.
Networking opportunities include multiple receptions and breaks, as well as a free tour of the John Deere Des Moines Works factory, where the company makes commercial application equipment, cotton harvesters and planting equipment.
