AgGateway's upcoming Mid-Year Meeting, June 9-12 at Prairie Meadows in Altoona, Iowa, will feature dozens of working sessions and presentations on the latest eBusiness activities in agriculture, with topics spanning from data privacy to auto data capture. More than 200 companies - members and non-members alike - will gather to discuss and advance efforts to enable eBusiness in agriculture, resulting in improved business efficiencies and better use of ag technology.

A description of sessions can be found on the 2014 Mid-Year Meeting page at Highlights include:

  • An orientation luncheon for first-time attendees on the first day of the meeting;
  • The first meeting of the new Data Privacy and Security Committee to review a draft white paper and begin defining data classifications that will drive committee work over the next six months;
  • An overview and demonstration of the Conversion Toolbox from the Standardized Precision Ag Data Exchange (SPADE) Project;
  • A demonstration of the Precision Ag Irrigation Leadership (PAIL) Project standards, based on the completed data schemas;
  • An educational session on bar coding solutions in inventory control to improve data accuracy and reduce cycle time;
  • Review of a new field sample standards project (Modus), which aims to create and maintain a field sample data exchange;
  • Educational sessions on unique identifiers covering common uses, benefits and AgGateway resources; and on Global Location Numbers (GLNs) and opportunities to expand their use in the ag Industry; and
  • Meetings of the AgGateway Councils, including Feed, Grain, Seed, Crop Protection, Crop Nutrition, Ag Retail, Allied Providers, and more.

In addition to ample networking opportunities, attendees will hear general session presentations by Kathy Mathers, vice president of public affairs for The Fertilizer Institute, on the Responsible Ag Initiative; and from Tom Sell, co-founder and managing partner of Combest, Sell & Associates, on ramifications of the new farm bill.

"Join us at the Mid-Year Meeting to network and to learn from others that are already seeing the immense benefits of electronic connectivity between trading partners," said AgGateway CEO Rod Conner. "This is a great opportunity to meet with colleagues and trading partners, and to see what AgGateway is all about."

The registration fee for the meeting is only $75, discounted to $50 for first-time attendees. AgGateway keeps the registration fee low to facilitate participation, and so that those who are curious about eBusiness and the organization can see AgGateway in action.
