We are excited to announce the ADC data repository is now available for farmers, ag service providers, and researchers to sign up for their own accounts. The ADC team met with several interested companies, service providers, and universities recently at InfoAg to share the news. There was a lot of positive feedback and excitement about the system becoming available to help put farmers in control of their data.
For anyone interested in signing up for an account, simply visit the AgDataCoalition.org website and click the link to sign up. Also be sure to visit the ADC website, Twitter channel (@agdatacoalition) and LinkedIn page for more frequent updates now that the non-profit organization is officially founded and the system is live.
We would also like to thank all the participants in our pilot program last year. Thanks to their feedback, we identified four bundles of enhancements we will be rolling out in the platform to make controlling data even easier for users. Item one is already underway with our development team and we are working on scheduling the work for item two next. Watch for future announcements when the work is live in the system.
1. Additional admin controls for users who need to permission access based on different sites/locations
2. Additional user management tools for managing, modifying or updating accounts
3. Accounts tailored specifically for research project participants and an overall project manager account
4. Additional flexibility and options for grower accounts sponsored by their ag service provider or retailer
Thanks again for all of your support This is truly a turning point for the ag industry – enabling farmers to take control of their data in a neutral, independent data repository. If you have any questions, comments, or feedback, feel free to drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org
