As part of The Research Data Alliance (RDA) Interest Group on Agricultural Data (IGAD) meeting focusing on IGAD/RDA : Sharing Experiences and Creating Digital Dialogues, Andres Ferreyra, Syngenta Crop Protection LLC presented a webinar during the ‘Semantics’ group of presentations on May 26.
The webinar focused on ‘Building global infrastructure for interoperability across the agriculture industry: AgGateway and its Agrisemantics Working Group.’ AgGateway is a global nonprofit industry association with a membership of approximately 200 companies. The purpose of AgGateway is to enable digital agriculture by promoting the implementation of data exchange standards, both in supply chain and field operations domains. Examples of supply-chain standards include the Ag eStandards (for communication among manufacturers, distributors and retailers) and AgXML (for grain contracts, transport, settlements, weights and grades).
The Research Data Alliance (RDA) Interest Group on Agricultural Data (IGAD) meeting was set to be held in Rome (Italy) in April 2020 but instead, took place as a virtual meeting from May 25 to 28. The virtual meeting provided an online platform to continue to build upon collaborations, knowledge sharing and developing innovations with activities including panel sessions, group discussions and presentations.
