This article is part of AgGateway’s case study series on digital agriculture, a partnership with Farm Journal Media. AgGateway is a non-profit org dedicated to promoting and enabling the industry's transition to digital agriculture.
Donald Green, EDI Systems Analyst for Nutrien, explains the company found success in implementing AgGateway standards particularly in working with its specialty chemical suppliers.
As Green explains, until recently there have been limited choices for inventory reporting for retailers and small to medium-sized distributors. Nutrien and its partners – SePRO Corporation and Nufarm (working with TKXS) – collaborated with other companies within AgGateway to create a solution for the industry.
“For example, AgGateway eliminates the need for dozens of customized spreadsheets, and it speeds up service and reporting,” he says.
