AgGateway offers precision ag standards for seeding operations
But to date, it's been difficult for farmers and their trusted partners to easily access and apply that data, so most of it goes unused.
"Stakeholders in agriculture currently spend a lot of time and effort converting between multiple proprietary data formats in order to effectively utilize the data that has been collected. The SPADE work will make a huge difference in breaking that data format logjam," said Andres Ferreyra, Ph.D., manager of special projects in Ag Connections, Inc.; and the SPADE Management Team Lead.
The SPADE project team, a group of more than 30 agricultural companies, has been working for more than two years to document seeding, crop protection application and harvest-related processes. The team will be meeting in Atlanta the first week of August to continue this work, focusing on completing crop protection and harvest documentation later this year.
