AgGateway’s mid-year meetring will be held in Johnston, Iowa, and it is only about six weeks from the start of the meeting, June 17-21. The association is urging those interested in topics to be discussed to take this free opportunity to investigate if AgGateway has value to them.

AgGateway says ag professionals can learn and help their industry. “You'll hear updates on the Standardized Precision Ag Data Exchange (SPADE) project, the Tonnage Reporting Project for feed and fertilizer, next steps on other Precision Ag Council projects, the latest on Seed Connectivity II, the new Automated Information Data Capture (AIDC) Project, and much more,” the meeting announcement says. 

This meeting is one place where new ideas germinate for eBusiness in agriculture and allows persons to participate in council and committee meetings that directly impact their business.

Trading partners and competitors will be gathering to discuss ways to achieve more efficient business transactions. In addition to receptions and breaks, networking will occur on a free tour of the John Deere Des Moines Works factory.
